Egri FC

Egri FC

Position last season – 1st in second division (east)

Coach – Antal Simon

Player to watch -Norbert Németh. The new signing at the Szentmarjay Tibor Városi Stadion will bring a wealth of experience of the 1st division with him which will be must needed next season. The former Budapest Honvéd midfielder is not shy of a tackle and will thrive playing with no pressure and expectation on his shoulders.

Rising star – Csaba Preklet. The 21 year old defender plays like a seasoned pro and did enough to convince Reggina to sign him. Capped at all levels up to full international, this will be a chance to show the 1st division what he is all about. Dangerous from set pieces, he will chip in with a few goals next term.

Realistic target – Egri are here on merit, make no mistake. Two successive promotions have seen them reach the pinnacle of Hungarian football but they won’t be here just to make up the numbers. Survival will be the name of the game, and I think they will just do it.

League prediction – 14th
