Hungary and Ferencvaros legend Florian Albert died on Monday at the age of 70, after complications following heart surgery last week.

The former attacker was admitted to a hospital in Budapest and underwent an operation on Friday.

Doctors were initially hopeful that he would survive the surgery, but the illustrious Hungarian passed away this morning after complications.

Albert spent his entire career with Ferencvaros, scoring an impressive 256 goals in 351 league appearances. He won four league titles and led them to Fairs Cup glory in 1965.

The club named their stadium after the legendary forward in 2007.

Albert also made 75 international appearances for Hungary, scoring 31 goals in the process. He was joint top-scorer at the 1962 World Cup with four goals and played a key role in Hungary’s third-placed finish at Euro 1964.

Albert is the only Hungarian to have won the Ballon d’Or. The Ferencvaros legend was awarded the prestigious individual trophy in 1967.
