In the summer of 1997, Slovák moved abroad, joining Spain's CD Tenerife. During his spell, he was sparingly used whilst the club was in La Liga (with a maximum input of 27 matches in 1999–2000's Segunda División, without promotion), also being loaned for one year to former side Slovan.
Slovák moved in 2002 to neighbouring Czech Republic, signing for Gambrinus liga title holders FC Slovan Liberec. After six games and three goals, his season was finished after he suffered a serious knee injury.
In the January 2004 transfer window, when fully recovered, Slovák changed countries again, signing for 1. FC Nürnberg, where he teamed up with compatriots Marek Mintál and Róbert Vittek, being the least successful player of the trio. In mid-October of the following year, the 30-year-old left the Germans and returned to Slovan Bratislava. In the 2006–07 campaign he helped the team to a third-place finish, scoring twice from 27 appearances.
After having appeared in less than half of the matches in 2009–10, with Slovan finishing in second position in the Slovak Super Liga, Slovák retired from football due to recurring knee problems, aged nearly 35. He returned to his main club in 2011, being appointed manager of the reserves.
Slovák won his first cap for Slovakia at the age of 20, going on to appear in a further 19 games in the following decade, although he went through a large period of international inactivity, playing no matches from 2002 to 2004.
