Juraj Halenár (born 28 June 1983) is a Slovak football forward who currently plays for SV Gaflenz in the Austrian lover division.[1][2]

Club career[edit]

Halenár, a native of Trnava, moved to Bratislava at the age of 18, when he joined Slovakia's reigning champions, Inter Bratislava. He impressed in the 2004-05 campaign, in which he scored 12 goals for the club in the Corgoň Liga. Following the first game of the new season, in which he bagged two goals against MFK Ružomberok, Halenár transferred to Artmedia for an undisclosed fee, reported to be in the region of 20 million Slovak crowns.[3] In only his second game for Artmedia on 27 July 2005, he scored a hat-trick against Celtic in the 2005 UEFA Champions League second qualifying round tie.[4]

In summer 2008, Halenár was sold to Slovan Bratislava.[5] The striker scored two goals on his debut for Slovan in a 4–1 victory against 1. FC Tatran Prešov.[6] He became the top all time scorer in the Slovak top flight on 10 August 2014, when he scored a brace against MFK Košice, surpassing Róbert Semeník's record of 120 goals.[7] In January 2015, Halenár left the Slovak league and signed for Hungarian team Nyíregyháza Spartacus FC, where he stayed until the end of the season.[8] Afterwards, he joined SK Sigma Olomouc on 9 July 2015.[9] In December 2015, he left the club due to family reasons.[10]

International career[edit]

Halenár played at two youth tournaments for his country, the UEFA European Under-19 Championship in 2002 and the Under-20 FIFA World Youth Championship in 2003. On 13 November 2007, he made his debut for Slovakia's senior team in a qualifying game for the 2008 European Championship against the Czech Republic. Halenár also played in next two matches of the national team, when he came on as a substitute both against San Marino and Hungary.
