The 2019 Total Player, Denes Varga, had another excellent season, although he was out of the pool for a long time due to injuries.
He managed to get into good shape in time and was the best when it was the most important.
As usual, Varga was Ferencvaros’ leader. The Hungarian club didn’t manage to retain the European title, but it won silver in the Champions League. Hungary returned to the podium of the Olympic Games after 13 years, winning bronze in Tokyo. He also made the Total 7 team in our last year’s election for the best players of the 21st century.
“I have Total Seven, but I have to narrow to Top 5 so it would be unfair not to mention fantastic seasons from Jaksic and Fountoulis!” stated Varga for Total Waterpolo.
