Player Of The Month August 2019




Q. What was your most memorable match whilst at Plymouth Argyle? 

A. This is an easy one for me if you consider everything about a game of football. It is the home game v Cardiff and we were 3 down at half time. I came on early in the second half with Lilian and the game finished at 3-3 and I got 2 assists (admittedly one was an assist from an own goal). Amazing game of football, amazing support, it was a brilliant day and one I will always remember.


Q. Who was the best Argyle player you played with and why?

A. Barry Hayles had everything as a player. He was strong, he never stopped, he was technically excellent and he was very easy to play with. His reading of a game was also superb. He is also a great guy. 


Q. Who was your toughest opponent and why?

A. Mikel. Do I have to tell you why? Haha. A real talent and such a great attitude to the game.


Q. You must have an amusing story you could share with us about your time at Argyle? 

A. One day Tony Pulis arranged for the defenders to start a session at 10am and midfielders / strikers to start at 1030am. Nuno Mendes did not turn up at 10am as he was supposed to and Tony called him and really told him off and told him to come in immediately as he was late.


Q. Nuno arrived at 1025 and announced to everybody, today I am a striker

A.He wasn’t at the club very long after that. 


Q. Now you are no longer playing football how do you occupy yourself?

A. I run Grund FC which is a football academy in Budapest. I hope to forge a relationship with Plymouth so that I can send youth players over for the club to look at. So far they have been very kind to take 3 of my boys (2 are with me this week). Maybe, Plymouth would like to send youth teams over to Budapest for tournaments?We have some great talent in our club and it would be a dream for me to see another Hungarian pull on the green shirt of Argyle. 

 I am also the father to 2 lovely girls and a partner to Diana. I also develop properties in Budapest. 

Q. Can you recall your most embarrassing moment?

A. I scored an own goal at Home Park early in my Plymouth career to put us 1-0 down. I tried all of the game to make up for it and was soso tired after the game. I cannot even remember who it was against


Q. Were you always destined to be a footballer?

A. Yes, absolutely. My father is a football coach and we worked together from when I was very young to become a professional footballer. 


Q. Who was the best manager you ever played under and why?

A. I had some good managers that I could mention but Ollie has to be the best. He was so enthusiastic and he treated his players like his family.

I was also coached by Jose Mourinho and he was a great communicator and man manager.


Q. What was your pre-match routineE.g. lucky item, superstitions?

A. Just to focus veryvery hard on the next 90 minutes. No superstitions.


Q. If you could change or amend one law of the game- or introduce a new one to benefit modern-day football, what would it be?

A. Maybe VAR, ask me in 6 months. 


Q. Who was the biggest influence on your career and why?

A. Without doubt, my father. He introduced me to the game, he taught me everything about football and he insisted I use both of my feet (something I am very grateful for!). We practiced free kicks for many many hours too. He made me concentrate on the techniques of the game too. 


Q. If you could choose any player in the world you would have liketo have played with, who would it have been?

A. David Beckham.
