A goal every other game - Hungarian former Liverpool starlet finally coming good

Hungary Flag

Krisztian Nemeth is currently in the best form of his post-Liverpool career with Roda JC.

As one of the biggest clubs in the world, with a reputation to match it, Liverpool FC have seen plenty of talented players from around the globe come and go over the years.

In recent years, the club have also developed many friendships with other clubs around the globe which sees talented players head to the UK and Liverpool FC - one such team is Hungarian outfit MTK Budapest.

At the moment, one such player is making waves in Holland - as Krisztian Adorjan shines on a loan spell with FC Groningen.

For another Krisztian playing in Holland at the moment however that success probably means a lot more.

Liverpool signed Krisztian Nemeth at the tender age of 18 on a three-year-deal and big things were expected of him after he banged in 14 goals in 37 games for MTK.

But it never clicked at Anfield, and he spent time out on loan with Blackpool and AEK Athens before being snapped up by Olympiakos in 2010.

Two more unsuccessful years followed, before he went to Holland - joining Roda JC of the Eredivisie.

But after last season it looked like once again his early promise was to be a false dawn.

Nemeth managed just two goals in 23 appearances during his first season in Kerkrade. With that in mind, not much was expected of him this year - and that lack of expectation finally seems to be doing the trick.

Nemeth is showing real signs of the young talent Liverpool spotted when he was a teenager. His goal this afternoon, which proved to be the winner against an out of sorts PSV Eindhoven outfit, took his tally for the season to seven from 14 for club and country in 2013-14 - easily his best return since being a teenager at MTK.

Here is his goal today, which took Roda JC up to ninth in the Eredivisie…
