“He never looked at me like that,” commented Gazdag’s wife on her husband’s photo with Lionel Messi. Daniel Gazdag always dreamed of meeting Messi, but he can’t have thought he’d ever get the chance on a football field. At the age of 25, the attacking midfielder was just about helping his Honved teammates survive the drop in Hungary’s top flight when the call from Philadelphia came. In his first full season in MLS he was one of the breakout stars in the league, managing 32 goal contributions in 34 games, while last year he contributed to 25 goals in 32 games. But for Hungary he hasn’t always shown the same form. “I do not like to talk about individuals, but I have to say that I expect more from Gazdag,” said Marco Rossi earlier this year. A bench spot therefore looks like the most likely position this summer.
