National Football Team Manager In Jeopardy
The Hungarian Football Association (MLSZ) is in quest of a new team manager following the embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Andorra on Friday night.

The win, the tiny nation’s first in 66 years, effectively ends Hungary’s hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.

Although current manager Bernd Storck has not been sent away yet, consultations have begun on potential candidates, Népszava reports.

The association has had talks with Csaba László, a coach with international experience, who said he would not like to rush things.

Storck will report to the MLSZ executive committee this week.

Asked in a parliamentary corridor whether Storck will have to resign, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said the MLSZ is led by people who have wide experience outside the world of football.

The Association’s head is OTP chief Sándor Csányi.

“We can all hope that president Csányi and his team will make a wise decision after weighing matters”. Orbán said.
