When I came here on Monday i dreamed of winning this award for the fourth time and it really happened. I am extremely happy and I would like to continue like this." 

"It will be very hard though since players in Slovakia are very good and especially our young guns are very ambitious. I would like to become one of the legends but it is a long and hard way so let´s see what happens when I retire. I would like my fans to remember me in a positive way for what I did on the pitch and outside the pitch as well.  This is also a great chance to thank them once again. All of them. Their support is really important for me and I appreciate it. It is them I care about the most since we play football for them. So thank you once again!" 

Martins´ agent Mr. Karol Csontó from Stars and Friends Slovakia would also like to congratulate Martin: 

"I would like to congratulate him. It is a great honour for him and he fully deserves this accolade. We all know have hard he works every day to be as good as he can be. I hope this is not the last award for him and I wish him great health because that is the base of all things," he said.

A TASTE OF SUCCESS FOR DANIEL ROYER

S&F Austria/Germany, 01/03/12

In Austria’s U21 international against Switzerland (played at Villarreal in Spain), Daniel’s equaliser took his team to 1 : 1, thus laying the foundation for the well-earned 2 : 1 victory for trainer Werner Gregoritsch’s debut match.
In Hannover, Daniel is only a substitute for the time being and therefore does not have an easy time of it with the current Number 7 in the German Bundesliga ........... which means moments of achievement like this are very welcome!

Earlier than planned, the transfer to German first-division club Werder Bremen was closed yesterday, with Austria and Werder agreeing the financial terms of the deal. Which means "Zladdi" will be ready to play for the league's fifth-placed team from spring this year. The transfer to Bremen is a fantastic chance for Zlatko to develop his sporting career further and an important milestone in the 24-year-old's illustrious football career so far.

Nacer BARAZITE:

EMANUEL POGATETZ – NO COMPROMISE

S&F Austria/Germany, 12/12/11

This weekend, Emanuel Pogatetz again showed how he earned the title “Mad Dog” during his time in England. During the match against Bayer Leverkusen, there was a clash of heads between Pogatetz and opposing midfielder Simon Rolfes. While Rolfes took a nasty bruise and stayed back in the dressing room after half-time, Emanuel played the match through to the end, despite an open head wound. This was rewarded with additional soubriquets from the German-language press, such as “Austrian Ironskull” (Berliner Kurier) or “Tough Nut of the Day” (Welt Online). Despite his sterling performance, however, Hannover 96 still took home a frustrating 0:0 from Saturday evening’s match.

PRÖDL AND POGATETZ SCORE HEADED GOALS

S&F Austria/Germany, 31/10/11

Despite differing final outcomes, last Saturday held something in common for our two German legionnaires. Both Sebastian and Emanuel headed the ball home whereby the latter had to face the defeat of his club Hanover in Mönchengladbach despite his equaliser to 1:1. Sebastian however secured Werder Bremen’s win over Mainz with his goal to 3:1 in the 78th minute. This was especially positive for Sebastian because he again played from the very beginning while his convincing performance, his goal and the win have definitely taken him a further step towards a permanent place in the team.

TOMAS JUN AND GUIDO BURGSTALLER SCORE AT 1 : 1 IN THE VIENNESE DERBY

S&F Austria/Germany, 24/10/11

Tomas took Austria into the lead in the 37th minute with his second goal of the season; but Guido equalised on the half-time whistle – with a superb low shot right into the corner.
Guido is getting more and more into the game at the green-whites and such successes mean he is gaining an immense amount of self-confidence for the Hütteldorf team’s next matches.
By the way, this was the 5th Viennese derby in succession without a winner.

FIRST NATIONAL MATCH GOAL FROM ZLATKO JUNUZOVIC

S&F Austria/Germany, 10/10/11

"Juno" was over the moon after the Euro 2012 qualifier against Azerbaijan and his first goal in what was already his 15th national game. Although only brought on in the 67th minute, he took command of the centre-midfield, demonstrating the quality of his footballing skills every time he took possession.

GREAT PERFORMANCE FROM CHRISTOPHER DRAZAN in UNDER 21 NATIONAL MATCH VS. NETHERLANDS

S&F Austria/Germany, 10/10/11

Christopher turned in a super performance in the 0:1 against the Dutch side, showing off some truly eye-catching play at the Tivoli in Innsbruck. His speed and superior shooting technique proved a real challenge for the opposition and excited a lot of interest with the international scouts present.
It's just a shame that SK Rapid doesn't always have enough faith to make him a permanent part of their first eleven: he'd certainly be a truly valuable addition to the Green & Whites' game!

ANDREAS LASNIK SIGNS FOR NAC BREDA

S&F Austria/Germany, 09/09/11

ZLATKO JUNUZOVIC STAYS AT AUSTRIA WIEN

S&F Austria/Germany, 25/07/11

The sports management agency Stars & Friends can disclose that Zlatko Junuzovic has decided he will continue playing for FC Austria Wien under the terms of his current contract at least beyond the end of the summer transfer window.

After a thorough consideration of the opportunities available, Zlatko has made the decision that his career plans will benefit most from continuing to develop his market position with matches for FC Austria Wien and the national squad before then moving to a top club by summer 2012 at the latest. As things currently stand, an extension of his contract at Austria Wien is therefore not an option.

FIFA U-20 WORLD CUP: JULY 21 – AUGUST 21, 2011 IN COLUMBIA

In 33 official matches, he scored a total of 9 goals while also setting up another 10; his way of "playing ball" not only wowed the fans but also impressed experts in the game, thus enabling him to become the worthy winner of the title.

Many top clubs have already been busy making a lot of notes about Zladi and he has a good chance of an international career.

CHRISTOPHER DIBON – SHOOTING STAR OF THE WEEK

S&F Austria/Germany, 09/06/11

His decisive 1:1 equalizer against Latvia was the FC Admira player's thank-you to team boss Didi Constantini for his first A-team cap, and it also paved the way for a great 3:1 victory for our national team.

Manuel Ortlechner, Zlatko Junuzovic and Roman Kienast were also on the field from the start, forming the rock-solid heart of this team formation.

With three other S & F players – subs Christopher Drazan, Manuel Weber and Daniel Royer – also on the pitch later ………… all in all, it was a fantastic evening of football for Austria and Stars & Friends!

7 STARS & FRIENDS PLAYERS IN THE SQUAD AGAINST GERMANY

S&F Austria/Germany, 24/05/11

5 PLAYERS OF STARS & FRIENDS AT THE TRAINING CAMP TO PREPARE FOR THE U 20 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN COLOMBIA

S&F Austria/Germany, 18/05/11

Janezcek B., Radlinger S., Schütz D., Stöger K. and Zulj R. have been summoned to Spain by Andi Heraf to attend the training camp - two others Huspek P. and Sax M. are on call. 

They will be together for 10 days and want to use the time to prepare as best as they can for this big tournament.

It is for young talented players that such a big event often forms the launching pad for an international career - Sebastian Prödl and Rubin Okotie are the best examples of this; both were very convincing in the U 20 World Championship held in Canada and got noted by scouts hunting in the international arena; just how the success story eventually unfolded, one has come to know of in the meanwhile…..
Werder Bremen and FC Nürnberg!

BAYERN PUTS PRESSURE ON POGATETZ

S&F Austria/Germany, 02/05/11

Following the home defeat against Gladbach and Bayern’s victory over Schalke 04, the Munich squad has now edged ahead in the fight to secure a place in the Champions League.

For Emanuel, it would be a dream come true to achieve this kind of sporting victory in his first year at Hannover.

And “Mad Dog” wouldn’t be “Mad Dog” if he wasn’t going to fight with everything he’s got to achieve this goal!
