György Garics (born 8 March 1984 in Szombathely, Hungary) is a Hungarian-born Austrian professional football defender. He currently plays in Serie A for Atalanta.


Football career

Although born in Hungary, Garics moved to Vienna when he was 14 years old and started his football career in Austria with prominent side Rapid Vienna in 2002; during his first season as a teenager he made two appearances.

By the 2004–05 season the young attacking wingback has become more of a prominent member in the first team and Rapid Vienna won the Austrian Bundesliga, around this time he also became captain of the U21 national team of Austria.

Having made 81 appearances for Rapid Vienna and scored one goal, he was bought by Italian side Napoli for €700,000 , making his debut against Triestina on 23 September 2006. Soon after, he achieved a call up on 6 October 2006 for the Austrian national team against Liechtenstein and scored on his international debut.

He was also called up to the Euro 2008 squad and started Austria's third match against Germany in Vienna.

Garics signed for Atalanta from Napoli as part of a co-ownership deal in early July 2008. Atalanta bought full ownership of the player for an undisclosed amount on 26 June 2009.[1]
