FC Barcelona is the most successful and popular football club in the world. Its motto, “more than a club”, is certainly true and it is a worldwide brand with millions of fans. Despite that, few know that the today’s successes were established in a past in which brilliant Hungarian footballers played an eminent role. They are the Hungarian heroes of Barcelona: the “goalmaker” Kubala, Czibor, “the Golden Head” Kocsis and the almost forgotten Berkessy and Plattkó. Ferenc Plattkó was the goalkeeper of the Catalan club between 1923-1930, and was also a fans favourite before he emigrated. László Kubala joined the club after epic adventures in 1950 and became Barcelona’s brightest star. Czibor, nicknamed “the crazy bird”, became one of the Spaniard’s favourite, while the restrained, elegant Kocsis became known as the “The Golden Head” all over Catalonia within a few weeks due to his legendary headers.
