Jenő Buzánszky (4 May 1925 – 11 January 2015) was a Hungarian football player and coach. Buzánszky played as a right back for Hungary. During the 1950s he was a member of the legendary Hungarian national team known as the Mighty Magyars. Other members of the team included Ferenc Puskás, Zoltán Czibor, Sándor Kocsis, József Bozsik and Nándor Hidegkuti. He was the only member of the team not to play for either Honvéd or MTK Hungária FC. Following the death of goalkeeper Gyula Grosics in June 2014, he was the last surviving member of Hungary's gold-medal winning 1952 Olympic team. After 274 league games he retired as a player and became a coach. In 1996 he became a deputy chairman of the Hungarian Football Federation.

Buzánszky made his debut for Hungary on 12 November 1950 in a 1-1 draw with Bulgaria.
