Hidegkuti is often credited as being one of the players who helped revolutionise the way football was played. So, whilst GusztÃ¡v Sebes, the coach and manager of the Mighty Magyars at the time, would mastermind the revolution, creating a flexible system that would see forwards dropping deep and dragging defenders with them, Hidegkuti was one of the players Sebes turned to in order to put the plan into action. Hidegkuti fit the system perfectly because as well as being supremely talented with the ball at his feet, he was also such an intelligent footballer, he understood exactly what Sebes was trying to achieve and could adapt his game to play in any number of attacking positions that he might find himself in.
Born in Budapest, he starred for MTK Budapest from 1946 to 1958, helping them to three Hungarian league titles.
