Ferenc Puskas(1927-2006)

Born: April 2, 1927, Kispest
Original name: Ferenc Purczeld
Club-carreer: 1942-49 Kispest, 1949-57 Bp. Honvéd, 1958-67 Real Madrid.
Position: Inside left

Hungary’s and to many, the world’s premier football-wonder, top-class player of the „Golden Team”. The only one who managed to rise to the top even abroad, leading Real Madrid to the glory of winning the European Cup, playing for both the Hungarian and later the Spanish national team. He was the only one of the defecting „Golden Team” members who was truly forgiven by politics. Although the forgiveness only came after 25 years, but when Puskás returned to Hungary in 1981 he was applauded by even the VIP section of the stadium before the Hungary–England game. Puskás started playing football in the Kispesti AC with the aid of his renowned-coach father and he went on to stay with the club (and it’s legal successor: Bp. Honvéd) until his defection. He was first called up for international duty with Hungary in 1945, at the age of 18 and obtained 84 caps until 1956 scoring an astonishing 83 goals for the National Team. (Making him the top goal scorer int he Hungarian team’s history). Captain of the 1952 Olympic champion hungarian team, 5 times hungarian champion with Honvéd, 4 times top goalscorer scoring an astonishing amount of 358 golas in 394 league matches for Honvéd while making his statistics 155 goals in 179 matches as a Real Madrid player. To list the assets of the „Gallopping Major” that made such an exceptional carreer possible is not an easy task. Brilliant shooting and dribbling ability, perfect technique, witty decisions, fine passing all characterized the playing of the explosive inside left. He’d already had weight problems when he left Hungary in 1956, but once abroad, Puskás managed to lose weight and adjust to the spanish style and despite being over 30 his playing was sometimes better than ever. He ended his playing carreer nearing 40 and started anew as a manager. He trained teams from Greece to Saudi-Arabia, Chile and Egypt all over the world his most memorable achievement being, that he led Panathinaikos to the European Cup’s final. He has been spending more and more time in Hungary since 1981 and has been continuing to receive numerous honors from the government and both the national and international football associations. In acknowledgement of his achievements, goals and enhancement of Hungary’s reputation Puskás was given the freedom of the district of Kispest in 1991.

Lajos Detari

Détári was born on 14 April 1963. He was not even 18 when he played his first game for Bp. Honvéd (Pécs-Bp. Honvéd 1-1). At the age of 19, he already had an unquestionable place in the team. The blond midfielder has suddenly become a favourite of Kispest fans. It was a fabulous career: the national team also depended on him at once. He scored unforgettable goals. Let's just mention his masterpiece scored during a World Cup qualifier in Vienna, or the one from free kick against Poland in Népstadion. In the years to come he collected 61 caps and scored 13 goals in the national team. He was one of those players who were able to decide a match with only one genius movement.

The last time he wore the red and white jersey of Honvéd was on 13 June 1987: Debrecen-Bp. Honvéd 0:2. He was signed by Eintracht Frankfurt. Though he spent only one year in the Bundesliga, he scored a winning goal in the German Cup final. Eintracht sold him to Greek Olympiakos for a record fee of 18 million German Marks. Détári did not succeed in winning the Greek championship with his team, but he helped Olympiakos to claim the Greek Cup title. His next move was to Italy in 1990, when Bologna signed him. He reached the UEFA Cup quarter finals with the red and blue team. In 1992, he was signed by Ancona, where he played 33 games scoring 11 goals. He spent the spring of 1994 in Genoa than left Italy for Switzerland. He won a bronze with Neuchatel Xamax. After this period, he played two seasons for Austrian second division St. Pölten. Later, he returned to Hungarian BVSC, played in lower divisions, but his main focus was on coaching ever since. He trained Oradea for a half year, Csepel for another six months. Following this experience, he was chosen head coach of Kispest-Honvéd and finished seventh with the club.
Though during his playing career, he missed a real great team to play for, he may be revered as the last world class footballer of Hungary.

Jozsef Bozsik

Jozsef Bozsik, who got his nickname „Cucu” from his grandmother, was born on november 28, 1925 in Kispest and grew up playing on the local football grounds.

His talent attracted the attention of one of KAC’s leaders early on and the club signed the 11-year-old Bozsik to the youth team. He made his first team debut in 1943 against Vasas and became a Hungarian international when he was 22 obtaining 101 caps and scoring a total of 11 goals for the National Team between 1947 and 1962. His first appearance was against Bulgaria on august 17, 1947 and the last against Uruguay on april 18, 1962 that he made memorable by scoring a goal. Bozsik won the Olympic title in 1952 (Helsinki), and partook in Hungary’s triumph when they beat England in London (6:3) and in Budapest (7:1).

His loyalty is an example for all, since he never played for any other club apart from KAC and it’s legal successor BHSE. He played 447 first division games in the red/black and red/white shirt respectively, scoring 33 goals. In 1956-57 Bozsik participated in Honvéd’s winter tour, from where he returned to Hungary along with the other three stars of the „Golden Team” and after a short ban he was allowed to play in the World Cup finals of 1958 in Sweden, where he finished 10th with the National Team. A year later he managed to win the Central European Cup with Honvéd in 1959. During his period in professional football that lasted almost two decades Bozsik proved to be one of the most skilled hungarian half-backs ever. In his prime he was considered to be the world’s best attacking half-back. Flawless technique, immense flair, tactical maturity and creativity all characterized him as a real football-genius and his brilliant positioning coupled with great acceleration and agility more than made up for his lack of pace. His 40-50 meter longballs could not have been more punctual.
Throughout his career Bozsik received countless honors, he was even voted a Member of Parliament. He retired from professional footbal in 1962 playing his last game against FTC. The 5-times-Hungarian-champion became a member of the BHSE board after his retirement.

He managed Honvéd in 47 matches as head coach between january, 1966 and september, 1967 returning to his board position afterwards. In 1974 Bozsik was chosen to control the Hungarian National Team, but an unfortunate illness forced him to resign soon after his appointment. Following his recovery he became a technical supervisior(???).

He died on may 31, 1978 in Budapest, his early death caused by cardiac dysfunction.
The elementary school in Szony and the stadium of his beloved club in the 19th district of Budapest were both named after him. József Bozsik also became a posthumus freeman of Kispest.

Georgi Asparuhov, nicknamed Gundi (4 May 1943 – 30 June 1971) was a Bulgarian football player. He is considered to be among the top Bulgarian footballers of all time.
Asparuhov was a striker for LEVSKI SOFIA from 1960 to 1961 and 1964 to 1971, and for Botev Plovdiv from 1961 to 1963. He played 245 matches and scored 150 goals in the top Bulgarian division. Some of the top European clubs at the time sought his services. In the 1965-66 European Cup, Levski played Benfica (with Eusebio in the squad). When Benfica eliminated Levski after hard fought 3:2 and 2:2 scorelines and Gundi having netted 3 of all Levski goals, Europe began to view Gundi with interest. In fact, he was the first player to score two goals in Benfica's stadium. In the aftermath of this match, Levski grew in popularity in Europe. The rich Portuguese club wanted to buy Asparuhov, but the communist government of Bulgaria did not allow them to do so.
For the Bulgaria national football team, Asparuhov featured in 50 games and has 19 goals. He scored the only goals for Bulgaria in Chile '62 and in England '66.
Asparuhov died in a car crash in 1971 with his talented teammate, Nikola Kotkov. At his funeral despite bans, repressions and arrests of the communists, over 550,000 people went to Sofia to pay tribute and their respect to him and to bid him farewell.
The present stadium of Levski Sofia is called Georgi Asparuhov Stadium in honour of the famous striker.
His rejection of AC Milan is one of the most quoted phrases in Bulgaria: "There is a country called Bulgaria. And there's a Bulgarian team, called Levski. You may've not heard of it. But I'm born in this team, and in this team I will die!"

Coen Moulijn

Coenraadt (Coen) Moulijn (1937-2011) was a Dutch football player. He played since the mid 50's till the beginning of the 70's as a left wing player at Feyenoord and the Dutch team. At the beginning of 2011 he faced a cerebral infarction which cost him his live a few days later.

Moulijn made his debut at the age of 17 for the Rotterdam football club of Xerxes, where he saw Faas Wilkes playing in his younger years. He was 1.72 meters and weight 62 kilo. The left wing player showed his skills at a young age. In the summer of 1955 city club Feyenoord bought Moulijn for 28.000 gulden, which was big money back in those days. With this money Feyenoord bought Moulijn before city rival Sparta Rotterdam could made their move.

At the home match against MVV from Maastricht at 18 September in the year of 1955 Coen Moulijn played his first match in the red/white Feyenoord shirt. He was known for his spectacular and fast actions on the flanks, but let the defending tasks to his friend Cor Veldhoen. The famous Feyenoord star made thousands of people watch Feyenoord play in De Kuip. In his begin year Moulijn could almost control a match himself. In the begin 60's FC Barcelona asked Feyenoord if they could buy Moulijn. Moulijn didn't move to Barcelona as he wanted to stay in Rotterdam. Later he said that if he went he'd probably became a bigger player.

Together with Ove Kindvall he was the star of Feyenoord. In 1970 he won the Europe Cup 1 by defeating the Scottish Celtic FC in the final, it was the first time a Dutch team won the Europe Cup 1. Months after that succes he won the worldcup with Feyenoord after defeating Estudiantes de la Plata from Argentina. In the later years Moulijn needed more help from his team mates but he still played some good matches. In total Moulijn played 487 times in the Feyenoord shirt in 17 season, which is the most of all Feyenoord players. He scored 84 goals as a left wing player. Moulijn won the Dutch championship for 5 times and made Feyenoord a big european club. Well active as a football player he started a women and men mode store in 1961 in Rotterdam which he held untill he's dead in 2011.

Dutch National Team
In the Dutch national team Moulijn played between 1957 and 1969 38 matches for the national team, he scored 4 times. Because the left wing player saved his power for some decisve action the match, his way of playing became precarious for some. Because of this many coaches doubt about his power for the national team.
