Club: 1860 Munich

Bio: Born in Szombathely, Király started his career at local club Haladás where he made over 100 appearances before leaving for Hertha Berlin at the age of just 21.

Király spent 7 years at Hertha and became a fans favourite at the German club, making over 200 appearances. He then tried his hand at Premier League football when Crystal Palace came calling in 2004.

He would only spend one season in the Premier League as Palace would be relegated in his first season at the London club, but wowed fans with his eccentric playing style and unforgettable ‘baggy trousers’. Király played over a 100 games before falling out of a favour, prompting loan spells at West Ham and Aston Villa.

He then moved to Burnley in 2007 but found chances hard to come by and in 2009 moved back to Germany where he now plays for 1860 Munich.

Király has played over 80 games for the National Team over 12 years, spending most of that time as first choice between the sticks.
