Judit Földi Rácz, a member of DK’s board, said that “hundreds of billions of forints” have been spent on Hungarian football without any spectacular results, while “Iceland has proven that you can succeed with sales assistants and dentists”.
Földi Rácz quoted Prime Minister Viktor Orbán as saying earlier that the government-sponsored “academy” training system would produce 80 young footballers a year to play in the big teams.
The Puskás Academy, however, which has alone “burnt 20 billion forints” (EUR 61.6m) in public funds in recent years, “has not yielded a single young talent”, she said, concluding that the government’s “football sham” has been uncovered.
