Miklos Feher (1979 - 2004)

Today football is crying for the death of a young football player that died during a football match yesterday between V. Guimarães- Benfica. The Benfica player, and Hungarian International, Miklos Feher said goodbye to life yesterday in Guimaraes. We want to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends. Farewell Feher. You will stay in our hearts forever.


At 24 years old, Hungarian striker Miklos Feher has passed away.

He leaves behind him a promising career that saw him join FC Porto at the age of 19.

He was born on July 20, 1979 and started his career by playing for Gyor, which happens to be the Hungarian city he was born in.

He spent three years as a senior team member there and notched 23 goals in 62 matches in the Hungarian Premier League.

His impressive strike rate coupled his impressive physical stature immediately alerted the attention of Portuguese giants FC Porto.

In 1998/1999, he moved to FC Porto and won the Portuguese league championship.

Feher did not get much playing time with FC Porto as Mario Jardel was in his prime.

Midway through the 1999/2000 season Porto loaned Feher to Salgueiros, who at the time were playing in the Portuguese Premier League.

In 14 appearances for the strugglers, he scored 5 goals and was the main reason the club stayed in the top flight that season.

The following season (2000/2001) he was loaned to Sporting Braga where he enjoyed the best season of his career scoring 14 goals in 26 matches and earned MVP honours at the club that season.

Despite his goal scoring exploits, FC Porto still considered Feher a hot prospect for the future and not a first team regular.

In 2001/2002, he asked for a transfer away from the club but his request was denied and he spent the entire season playing with their B team until his contract expired in June of 2002.

He immediately signed for rivals Benfica, where he scored 4 goals in 17 appearances.

This season, he scored three times despite being used as a substitute for the majority of the season.

By the Hungarian National team Feher played 25 times and scored 7 goals.

He assisted on the winning goal Sunday evening just minutes before the tragedy.

The world looses exemplary young man who lived for Football.
