Club careerEdit

MŠK ŽilinaEdit

In December 2010, he has signed three-and-a-half-year contract for Žilina to join them on 1 February 2011.[1] Pich became a key player for Žilina and his great performances for the club were praised by the football experts. Pich helped Žilina win both the Slovak Super Liga and the Slovak Cup in 2012. His impressive and influential performances on the wing for Žilina attracted the interest from foreign clubs.

Śląsk WrocławEdit

In the summer of 2014, Polish club Śląsk Wrocław decided to buy Pich, after being very impressed with his performances for MŠK Žilina. Pich's great displays would continue at his new club Śląsk Wrocław. He became an influential player for Śląsk Wrocław and his impressive performances inspired Śląsk Wrocław to finish the season in 4th place in the Polish top division, the Ekstraklasa. Śląsk Wrocław finished ahead of Polish giants Wisla Kraków in the league and Pich was a major reason why they achieved this success.

FC KaiserslauternEdit

Pich's top class performances in the Polish League didn't go unnoticed by Europe's big clubs. At the start of the 2015 season, German giants Kaiserslautern decided to buy him, so that he could help them get promoted from the Bundesliga second division. However, Pich found the competition for places tough at Kaiserslautern. After a few months, he was loaned back to Śląsk Wrocław where he played well again. Pich's loan ended in the summer in 2016 and he returned to Kaiserslautern. He managed to finally get more regular appearances for Kaiserslautern at the start of the 2016 season. His good performances also earned him a call up to the Slovakian national team.
