After descending further and further down the club’s pecking order, Adam Nemec’s time with New York City FC has come to an end.

NYCFC announced Monday that the club has mutually parted ways with the Slovakian forward, who made nine appearances and eight starts for the club. After starting six of the club’s first eight games, Nemec had played just seven minutes since June 6.

Late Monday evening, Eredivisie side Willem II announced that they had signed Nemec to a one-year contract.

“First and foremost, we’d like to thank Adam for his hard work and contributions to New York City FC,” said head coach Jason Kreis. “We believe this move is best for both Club and player. We all wish him well for the future.”

Nemec failed to score or provide an assist in MLS, firing 13 shots with only three coming on target.

Capped 16 times by his national team, Nemec has scored three international goals while previously featuring for Germany’s FC Union Berlin and FC Kaiserslautern, Belgium’s KRC Genk and Slovakia’s MSK Zilina.

  1. A legend in the annals of garbage European strikers to visit MLS…. I’d take Danny Califf at striker over this lumbering pud 8 days a week.

    Thankfully his breed appears to be nearing extinction in these parts. Eventually he’ll end up on some vagabond European “power” like Partizan and score some “big” goal that gets them through to the quarterfinals of the Europa league and that will be as good as it ever gets out of this guy… at least until they lose 5-0 to Dundee United in the next round.

  2. I’m a big MLS basher, but I am not an ignorant person. For this guy (who I know nothing about) to sign in the Eeredivisie from the MLS, I tip my hat. Especially if he couldn’t cut it in the MLS, it shows that the quality is getting better in the league.

    I still like having the best americans play overseas though.
