Former Leicester player Zsolt Laczkó is assistant coach of Hungary. The progress in Nations League do tell us all a story of fascinating reading.
Laczkó joined Leicester in January 2008, spending half a season at King Power. The 35-year-old ended his playing days in 2019. He managed 22 caps for Hungary, earned over a period from 2010 to 2013.
New and fantastic progress is seen as Hungary push forward. This reminds of those good years of Puskas as this nation played in the 1954 World Cup final. This might be the most exciting team since that era.
27-year-old Adam Nagy is currently playing in Italian Serie B with Pisa. He has a past at Bristol City, being at Ashton Gate from 2019 to 2021. Callum Styles of Millwall is also one to watch as the 22-year-old midfielder made his debut for Hungary in 2022. Styles is through his grandparents eligible to play for Hungary. He came on as a sub vs. Germany and also played in the 4-0 trashing of England.
Looking at the progress of Nagy and Styles, you wonder how they have gone under the radar and not cought the eye of Leicester and other teams of higher grade. Their presence in the Hungarian national team should be something to take notice off.
The story of Callum Styles is one special as he continues to grow under Italian manager Marco Rossi. He is at present on loan at Millwall. There are of course other interesting names as well with most players being in Leagues abroad. Strange to see such progress going on unoticed under the nose of those chasing talent.
We would love to see Leicester again doing shrewd business and not splash money on players they cannot afford.
