Club career[edit]

Sariyar came through the youth ranks at Austria Wien but he made his professional debut at Gençlerbirliği S.K. before joining LASK Linz in 2000. After 3 years in Linz he returned to Turkey for a year and then played three more years at SV Pasching before returning to Austria Wien for the 2007/2008 season.

In summer 2008, he left FK Austria Wien for newly formed Austrian second-division side SC Wiener Neustadt[2] – who are acquiring the playing licence of SC Schwanenstadt for the 2008/09 campaign – and is joined by Austria Wien team-mates Sanel Kuljic, Johannes Aigner and Saso Fornezzi.[3] In January 2010 left SC Wiener Neustadt in the Austrian Second Division[4] and signed for Slovakian side FK DAC 1904 Dunajská Streda.[5]

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Austria in February 2005 against Latvia and earned 13 caps, scoring one goal. He was however not considered for Austria's EURO 2008 squad.
