Horvath what magic: the explosion in the Hungarian Serie B and a new chance at Torino

A rare tumor at 13, the arrival in Italy with Spal, the arrival at Turin in 2020: the stages of the Hungarian’s career

Yesterday, Friday 15 July, Krisztofer Horvath he became the protagonist of a wonderful pearl in the friendly against Eintracht Frankfurt. A goal that made the passive for Ivan Juric’s team less bitter in the first outing of the season. This kid from 2002 who is training in Austria with the Turin First Team deserves to be reintroduced. Arrived at Turin in 2020 from Spal, in the last year he was shot on loan in Hungary. He served in the Szeged, Serie B club. Taking into account, however, the not very high level of the championship, the young grenade had a very important score: in 33 appearances he scored 19 goals and 12 assists. His main technical characteristics are dribbling and long-range shooting, as demonstrated against the fresh winners of the Europa League.

Yesterday’s network could change Horvath’s scenario in grenade. The championship on loan in Hungary has shown that he has some kind of potential. In the offensive phase he knows how to play as an attacking midfielder but he also has a good vision of the goal and he himself confirmed that he also held the role of first striker in the period at Szeged. With the First Team of Turin he has already made his debut in November 2020 in the Italian Cup against Virtus Entella (just one minute), as he has already made his debut in Serie A with the Spal shirt at the end of the 2019/2020 vintage, the one marked by Covid. He played his first match in the Italian top flight on 26 July 2020 against Turin, then two further segments with Hellas Verona and Fiorentina. Spal was his first club in Italy, after having had to fight a much scarier battle in his teens than in a football match. In fact, at the age of thirteen he faced cancer of the lymph nodes, a very rare tumor that almost never strikes under the age of 18. The Hungarian 2002 managed to defeat the disease thanks to the best treatments paid from the proceeds of a friendly match between his first club (Zalaegerszeg) and rival team. After three years, now recovered, he also made his debut in the first team of Zalaegerszeg, immediately becoming one of the club’s top players. And from there he moved towards Spal and then in 2020 towards Turin.

One has to wonder why he had to return to his native land to break through. The motivation can be found on a character level. In the context of the Torino Primavera, he suffered above all from this point of view, even ending up on the sidelines with Federico Coppitelli, after having found more space in the management of Marcello Cottafava. An episode applies to everyone. In April 2021 in a very delicate Torino-Spal Primavera for the grenade in the key of salvation he took an avoidable double yellow, leaving the grenades in ten starting from 42 ‘of the first half. Torino then lost that match 0 to 2 and Horvath took the field only five more times from that moment on (and only once as a starter). The positive experience at Szeged and yesterday’s pearl at Eintracht could make him turn around. Juric awaits him as a possible surprise on the trocar.
