Béla Guttmann - The World History of Football in one Person
Audio recording of the talk by Detlev Claussen
The best football players of the post-war period – whether Puskas, di Stefano, Eusebio, Pelé or Uwe Seeler – all crossed paths with one man who shaped modern attacking football like no other: Béla Guttmann.
He was a Hungarian Jew and one of the most successful football coaches of all time, winning the European Cup with Benfica in 1961 and 1962. Through the story of this wanderer between the football worlds of Europe and America, Adorno biographer Detlev Claussen has written a special piece on cultural and sporting history.
