Bio: Hajnal was born in Esztergom, and joined the Ferencváros academy at just 12 years old. He only played two games before Fradi, before he was picked up Schalke at the age of just 16.
Hajnal found it a struggle to get into the first team at Schalke, making less than 10 appearances for the German outfit. Instead, he regularly turned out for Schalke’s reserve side where he played over 70 games, scoring 28 goals.
After a frustrating start in Germany, Hajnal moved to play for STVV in Belgium at 23, where he played 50 games in 2 seasons at the club.
His performances in Belgium attracted the attention of German clubs once again, and this time Kaiserslauten were in for the playmaker. He moved back to Germany in 2006, and made over 30 appearances for the club before moving at the end of the season to Karslruher.
After another impressive season in Germany, Hajnal moved to Dortmund in 2008 and played over 50 games for the German giants. After suffering a serious injury in the summer of 2010, Hajnal found it hard to get back into the side, and at the start of 2011 he moved on loan to Stuttgart.
In his 6 months at Stuttgart, Hajnal was instrumental in keeping them in the top tier. Before Hajnal joined, Stuttgart had a win percentage of just 20%, by the end of the season, with Hajnal, Stuttgart’s win percentage was up to 60% – and amazing turnaround.
At 30, Hajnal has made 40 games for Hungary making his debut back in 2004
