Szabolcs Huszti was born on 18 April, 1983 in Miskolc, Hungary. The midfielder signed his first professional football contract at Hungarian club Ferencvaros, but was loaned out after making just one appearance to FC Sopron in December 2003. Building on the success of his loan spell, where he scored six goals in 14 appearances, Huszti returned to his parent club and was soon a regular starter.
Like he never left
In the summer of 2005, the Hungarian midfielder turned down big interest from England and Scotland to join French Ligue 1 club Metz. He was on the move a season later, however, signing for Bundesliga side Hannover 96 in July 2006. It was during this spell that Huszti scribed his name into Hannover folklore following his goal-scoring exploits against FC Bayern Munich. The versatile midfielder was on target as the Reds recorded their first home win over the Bavarian club in 20 years at the start of the 2008-09 campaign.
During a three-year spell in the Bundesliga, Huszti found the net 17 times in 81 appearances, before movign to the Russian Premier League. The incredibly gifted Hungarian took just 18 days to get amongst the goals for his new club, netting on his first full debut against VfB Stuttgart in the now defunct UEFA Cup.
Finding the conditions and travelling distances not to his liking in Russia, Huszti jumped at the opportunity to resign for old flame Hannover, signing a three-year contract on 23 July, 2012. Now back on German soil, it's as if he's never been away, with the Hungarian at his string-pulling and goal-scoring best in the Hannover midfield.
