Budapest Honvéd was established in 1909. The team enjoyed a golden age during the 1950s when it was renamed Budapesti Honvéd SE and became the Hungarian Army team. The club's top players from this era, Ferenc Puskás, Sándor Kocsis, József Bozsik, Zoltán Czibor, and Gyula Grosics helped the club win the Hungarian League four times during the 1950s and also formed the nucleus of the legendary Hungarian national team popularly known as the Mighty Magyars.During the 1980s and early 1990s, the club enjoyed another successful period, winning a further eight Hungarian League titles. They also won league and cup doubles in 1985 and 1989. In 1991, the club was renamed Kispest Honvéd FC and adopted its current name in 2003. Budapest Honvéd is coached by Croatian manager Dean Klafurić since October of this year.
This is going to be the fourth match against Honvéd with Stanislav Cherchesov as Ferencvaros coach. Ferencvaros won three previous matches - 1-0 and 2-1 last season and 3-1 in the beginning of the current season.
“Another Budapest derby is coming up and and this will also be our last match at the end of a very long year. Several of our players have to sit out due to injuries and one player is preparing for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar with his national team. Regardless of everything, we are ready for the match against Honvéd and our goal is to take three points. We would definitely like to end this year with a win ”, said Cherchesov to the official website of Ferencvaros before the match.
