Club careerEdit

Koman was born in Uzhhorod, Zakarpattia Oblast, Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, Soviet Union. When he was a child, in 1991, his family moved to Szombathely, where he played his first matches for the local football team Haladás and made his debut in the NB2 league at age 15. His father, Volodymyr Koman, was also a football player. Koman played 25 matches and scored three goals in the 2004–05 season of the Hungarian National Championship II.

SampdoriaEdit

After joining Italian club Sampdoria, Koman made his Serie A debut on 7 April 2007 starting in the home match against Torino,[1] recording the assist for the match's only goal, scored by Emiliano Bonazzoli. He then led Sampdoria to win the 2007–08 Campionato Nazionale Primavera title, and also took part at the 2008 UEFA European Under-19 Championship captaining the Hungary under-19 national team.

Koman spent the 2008–09 season on loan to Avellino.[2] He scored four goals in 28 matches in Serie B for Avellino.

For the 2009–10, Koman was loaned to Bari. He scored his first Serie A goal against Palermo in a 4–2 win on 30 January 2010, making him the first Hungarian player to score in the Italian top flight in 15 years. He finished the season with two goals in 16 appearances.

Koman was appointed as a captain against Debrecen in the last round of the 2010–11 Europa League.

MonacoEdit

On 31 January 2012, Koman joined Monaco on a four-and-a-half-year contract.[3][4] His contract with Sampdoria was set to expire in May 2012. On 15 April, Koman was interviewed after the victory against Metz; he iterated he is expecting his first goal and enjoyed playing in Ligue 2.[5] However, after 17 matches, he left the club for Russian Premier League side Krasnodar.

KrasnodarEdit

In June 2012, Koman signed a contract with Krasnodar. On 23 July, he made his Premier League debut against Rubin Kazan, a 2–1 victory. He scored his first goal against Volga Nizhny Novgorod in a 1–1 away draw. On 1 July 2014, Krasnodar and Koman mutually terminated their contract, making Koman a free agent.[6][7]

In August 2014, Hungarian League club Diósgyőr sought to sign Koman, but he rejected the offer.[8][9][10] Koman's manager Bálint Kovács confirmed to Nemzeti Sport that Belgian Pro League club Club Brugge expressed interest in signing Koman in September 2014.[11]

On 12 November 2014, Koman was named by American digital media company Bleacher Report as one of the most notable free agents available for the 2014–15 season, along with Víctor Valdés and Simão.[12]

FC Ural (on loan)Edit

Due to lack of playing time with Krasnodar, in the 2013 summer transfer window, Koman was loaned out to fellow Russian league club Ural Sverdlosk Oblast. He made his debut on 16 September 2013 against Dynamo Moscow, where he played the full match.[13] On 15 May 2014, he scored his first goal in the 2013–14 Russian Premier League season on the 30th matchday against Volga Nizhny Novgorod, in the 45th minute.

According to the Croatian SportCom.hr, Croatian First League club Rijeka showed interest in signing Koman. The Croatian club was looking for a player to replace Moisés, who left Rijeka for Série A club Palmeiras.[19][20]
