I’ve been able to experience a lot in the short four years I’ve been here, with huge successes and unspeakably tragic moments as well.said on the club’s website Goalkeeper. – Regardless, I feel that although relegation cannot be accommodated, it is our duty to look forward and focus on getting Honved back to where it belongs – in the top flight.”

The other player to extend his contract is Croatian Ivan Lovric, who arrived in Kispesest in the winter of 2011 and, with the exception of a long way in Keskemét, has been supporting Honvéd for more than a decade. The 37-year-old defender is already an old “piece of furniture” in Honvéd, he got to the club earlier than the youth in the academy, so he has already experienced a lot over the past ten years.

The decision to stay with Honved for another season was not difficult. It doesn’t matter if I play five or ten minutes or I’m on the field all the time, the only thing that matters is that I help the club. I do not deny it, I have suffered from relegation many times, goodbye was a very bad feeling, unfortunately the last period did not go well for us, the difficult months and seasons are behind us. In the end, we did not succeed in escaping. So now the situation is new, Honvéd is new, but it is clear to me that Honvéd is not an NB II team, we have a place in the first division, and we have to work hard for it.

Gergely Kuhn, Managing Director of the Budapest Defense Force, commented on the contract extension as follows:

“We have a lot of talented young players, and routine is essential with them. It’s important that stability, experience and of course the heart of the armed forces are present in the dressing room. We want to promote these values ​​even more. Ivan Lovric and Thomas Tuggel have proven during tumultuous and difficult seasons that they work with Honvéd and can help the team.” With their knowledge, their morale and their play, we are counting on both of our regular footballers for the long term.”

Meanwhile, five people left Kispesti, Luca Cabane, Richlord Ennen, Vidar Johnson, Lucas Clemens, and Tamas Christian left the club.
