Club career[edit]

FK Dukla Banská Bystrica[edit]

Born in Revúca,[2] Gyömbér started playing football with club MFK Revúca, before moving to the youth team of Corgoň Liga club FK Dukla Banská Bystrica in 2006.[3] Norbert made his professional debut with Dukla Banská Bystrica on 1 October 2011 in a league match against MFK Ružomberok.[4] On 25 May 2012, Gyömbér was voted by Dukla Banská Bystrica's fans as player of the season, despite starting in just 18 league matches.[5] He was also named Revelation of the 2011–12 Corgoň Liga's season in July 2012, after his successful first season with FK Dukla Banská Bystrica.[6]


Calcio Catania officially agreed to the permanent transfer of midfielder Norbert Gyömbér from Dukla Banská Bystrica during the 2013 January transfer window, though the transfer was not officially be completed until 1 July 2013. The 20-year-old signed a 4.5-year deal at the Stadio Angelo Massimino, but finished the 2012–13 season with the top-flight Slovakian side.[citation needed]


On 18 August 2015, Gyömbér joined Roma on a one-year loan,[7] in which the signing was made permanent on 21 June 2016 for €1.5 million.[8]


On 15 August 2016, Gyömbér joined Pescara on a season-long loan.[9] He first appeared in a Cup match against Frosinone in August, however, after only 5 games, he fractured his tibula in a 49th minute of a match against Lazio Roma in September.

Although between December 2016 and February 2017 he appeared in 6 of Pescara's 10 matches (out of 2 due to a minor injury), rumours have surfaced about disagreements with some of his team mates and consequently, he was removed from the squad by club's disciplinary action in mid-February.[10] However according to Gyömbér, this rumour was "not true at all" and the real cause were disagreements with the coach of Pescara at the time, Massimo Oddo, who shortly after replaced by Zdeněk Zeman after a series of unsuccessful results, which Gyömbér claims to be one of the reasons for tensions. He revelaed these claims in an interview on 21 March 2017, in a national team camp in Senec, prior to the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Malta. [11]

Terek Grozny[edit]

On 16 February 2017, he joined the Russian Premier League club FC Terek Grozny on loan until the end of 2016–17 season.[12]
