Erik Sabo (born 22 November 1991) is a Slovak footballer who plays as a midfielder for Beitar Jerusalem on loan from PAOK.

Club career[edit]

He made his debut for Spartak Trnava against Slovan Bratislava on 25 February 2011.[1] He spent one year on a loan at Spartak Myjava, playing in the second division.

In August 2015, Spartak Trnava announced his transfer to PAOK.[2][3][4] He signed a 4-year contract. On 3 December 2015, Sabo was the MVP of a comfortable 6-2 away victory for PAOK over AO Chania F.C. and Igor Tudor's team advances to the next round of Greek Cup. Sabo scored three times, while Jairo, Giannis Mystakidis and Dimitris Pelkas marked the visitors' other three goals.[5] He finished the season with PAOK having 24 appearances in all competitions with 3 goals. [6]

On July 16, 2016 it was announced that Sabo had signed a season-long loan deal with the side Beitar Jerusalem with the option of making the move permanent for €400,000.[7] Eventually, he changed his mind preferring to sign with 2.Bundesliga club VfL Bochum, but he had to overpass the legal issues due to his signing to Beitar Jerusalem.[8]

International career[edit]

Sabo made his national team debut against Montenegro on 23 May 2014.[9]
