Total Player of the Year 2017 – Sándor Cseh’s TOP 5 – Juror #16

Sándor Cseh

Sándor Cseh is one of the leading representatives of the younger generation coaches. After accumulating his experience as a player in clubs from Hungary, Switzerland, Germany, and Saudi Arabia, he returned to Szolnok. Since 2008 he first coached the junior divisions before taking over the men’s team in 2015.

The fact, that he was able to achieve every title since his takeover of the head coach position, gives testament to his outstanding abilities as a coach. Hungary’s cup, the championship and this year’s Champions League title (the first in Szolnok’s club history) – he held all of them in his hands. The LEN Super Cup marks the latest addition to his impressive collection.
