With Nice he won the French league title 3 times and the domestic cup twice. He scored in both cup final wins.[1] His moment of fame came in February 1960 when he scored a hat-trick for Nice in the UEFA Champions Cup quarter finals against Real Madrid, who would later lift the cup for a 5th successive time.

He returned to Luxembourg in 1964 to become player/coach at Spora Luxembourg and won the domestic cup with them twice.

Nurenberg made his debut for Luxembourg in 1951 against Belgium B and went on to earn 16 caps, including non-official matches. He played in 3 FIFA World Cup qualification matches and 2 games at the 1952 Olympic Games.[2][3]

He played his final international game in September 1964 against Yugoslavia.

In 2008 he was promoted to the rank of Chevalier in the Order of Merit of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.[4] He died on 22 April 2010, aged 79.[5]
