Nurnberg bosses have decided to terminate the midfielder's contract nine months early after he became surplus to requirements at the Franken Stadion.
Slovak had a trial with English Championship side Leeds United in the summer, but failed to land a deal at Elland Road and is now expected to return to his native country in search of a new club.
Nurnberg are just two points off the bottom of the Bundesliga table, increasing the pressure on coach Wolfgang Wolf.
Wolf has a reputation for tough talking, but has recalled four under performing players ahead of Saturday's tough trip to Werder Bremen.
"Everyone has learned their lesson and are now training the way I expect them too," stressed Wolf.
Slovakian Robert Vittek, Tunisian midfielder Adel Chedli, Russian Under-21 star Ivan Saenko and Maik Wagenfeld were all dropped from the squad for Nurnberg's last game against Cologne because Wolf felt they were not giving their all to the club.
