FC Inter TurkuEdit
Nyman played his first match in 2000 when he was only 16 years old. In 2002, he was named for the best under-21 player in Finland. He served as a loyal member of Inter for six seasons, before leaving abroad. He visited Vålerenga, before joining FC Thun in Axpo Super League.
Nyman was signed by FC Thun for almost one million euros in 2007. He immediately broke into the Thun side and played regularly in the first team.
Back to TurkuEdit
It was rumoured for a long time, that unhappy Nyman was moving back to Inter Turku because of Thun's financial problems. Finally in April 2009, Inter announced that Nyman had signed for three years. He was labeled the successor to Dominic Chatto as a controlling midfielder.
Nyman decided to retire, after the 2018 season.
Nyman made his debut for the Finnish national football team against Bahrain on 1 December 2004. He is a back-up of Finland's defence, usually playing at right-back for Finland as a substitute for Petri Pasanen. He played for Finland on youth levels and in 2002 was voted for the under-21 footballer of the year.
