Human anamnesis of a football coach

Dimensions of coaching personality of Jozef Vengloš 18.2.1936 – 26.1.2021

         After Jozef Vengloš had gone to the football heaven, most of the media attention was quite stereotypically focused on the facts of his coaching career, and that is why we, as the insiders of the coaching branch, have focused on his coaching personality, the specific contributions he made to the coaching practice at both club or national team level. Based on the authentic testimony of his sons Juraj and Jozef, we have tried to present the personality of the legend and master of the coaching craft and coach of the century in Slovakia as they perceived him. In addition, we will enrich this personal description with how he was viewed by his former charges during the active stage of coaching and offer the opinions of his successful players from the Slovak football scene such as Ondrej “Morjo” Daňko, Ľubomír Moravčík, Anton Ondruš, Ján “Šivý” Pivarník and Ján Švehlík.
