goalkeeper Jurgen Macho joined Norwich on a week's trial on 26th
July 2004. The former Sunderland and Chelsea keeper was available
on a free after being released by the Stamford Bridge side following
a season where injury curtailed his first team chances. This suited
manager Nigel Worthington who was
seeking a third goalkeeper to act as cover for Robert
Green and Paul Gallacher.
Ultimately Worthington decided not to offer a contract to the
Austrian stopper and instead signed Darren
Ward from Nottingham Forest
On 18th August 2004, Jurgen signed for Austrian side Rapid Vienna.
He moved to German side FC Kaisersaluten in January 2005 signing
a contract until June 2006.
On 31st August 2007, Jurgen signed for Greek side AEK Athens
Macho signed for LASK Linz in November 2009 after a trial with
Wigan fell through
At the end of the 2009/10 season, however, he moved to Greece
again, joining Panionios FC.
He returned to Austria in January 2013 signing for Admira Wacker but was released on 1st July 2013. He announced his retirement on 1st September 2014.
