Lazăr played at youth level for CSȘ Craiova, a club from his hometown specialized in this sector.

Later he played for teams like Oțelul Galați, Gaz Metan Mediaş or Brașov. With Gaz Metan he played in the UEFA Europa League. Lazăr moved back to Bihor Oradea for the last part of his career, being a highly appreciated player by supporters, especially for his style of playing, seriousness and loyalty to the club, also being the captain of the team.
At 35 years old, also due to the bankruptcy of FC Bihor, Lazăr left the team, but continued to play for Liga IV teams from Bihor County as: FC Hidişelu de Sus, CS Diosig or CSC Sânmartin, winning the league with the first two and being on the 1st place with CSC Sânmartin, also, before he transferred to Crișul Chișineu Criș, in January 2018.
