Essentially a striker, he could also operate in central defense, and he helped Ferencváros TC win five Hungarian league titles between 1932 and 1941. He scored a goal in the 1934 FIFA World Cup, but his finest hour came when he captained Hungary to the 1938 FIFA World Cup finals, where he scored five goals in the tournament, including one in the final to reduce Italy's lead to 4-2, although a Silvio Piola goal eventually finished off the Hungarians.

After his retirement he moved to Italy, where he managed a number of clubs, including Juventus, AS Bari and AS Roma. He was also manager of Iran national football team. He died in 1993 aged 80.
