International Coaching Career
Csank was manager of the Hungarian national football team between April 1996 and November 1997. During this time, Hungary advanced from the World Cup qualification group but suffered a devastating 1–7, 5–0 defeat against FR Yugoslavia.
Csank is recognizable for his dark humor. At half-time in the losing match against the Yugoslavian team, when a reporter asked him what he's going to say to the players, he replied: "Surely not, keep it up!". At the end of this match, at the interview he said that the major cause of the loss was, "I didn't know, that some of my players are so lame."
