“With the quality he has, Adam fits in perfectly with our style of play,” said Alexander Rosen, director of football at TSG. Even Adam Szalai is excited by Hoffenheim's “attacking and energetic performances. I like the mentality and the character of the team. Hoffenheim was always the first option for a transfer,” said the 1.93m tall attacker, who also qualified for the Champions League with Schalke last season. The score was 1-1 after the first leg, but Adam scored two decisive goals in a 3-2 away victory against Greek club PAOK.
TSG are the third Bundesliga club that Szalai has played for, after 1. FSV Mainz 05 and FC Schalke 04. He has featured in 107 Bundesliga matches and has scored 28 goals. He featured 17 times nation's youth sides (U20/U21) and made his senior international debut for Hungary in February 2009. He has gone on to make 18 appearances in total, scoring seven times.
