"The young Hungarian made the switch from Hasselt to the Jos Vaessen Talent Academy two years ago."

"Andras has a lot of scoring ability with his 1.82m and is technically well supported. He is also youth international with Hungary."

"There was a lot of foreign interest for Andras, the club is therefore pleased that he chooses the project at Genk."

"Good luck Andras!."

Nemeth is still eligible to play for South Africa's Bafana Bafana.
