Hungary Appoint Belgian Manager On A 2-Year Deal

Hungary have appointed Belgian manager George Leekens as their new manager on a two-year deal.

Highly experienced Leekens replaces Bernd Stock, who left the post immediately after he failed to lead the team to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Hungary failed to qualify for Russia 2018 as they lost out to European champions Portugal (automatic World Cup place) and Switzerland (playoff place) in Group B of the European qualifiers.

All attention will now shift to the qualification series for the 2020 European Championship as Hungary bid to make it a second successive appearance at the tournament after they featured in the 2016 in France.
