It is with much sadness that the Hungarian Football Federation was this morning informed of the passing of former Hungary national team goalkeeper Márton Fülöp at the age of 32 after a long illness.

Márton made his international debut in 2005 and became a popular and respected squad member, gaining 24 caps for Hungary over the next six years. At club level, having come through the youth ranks at MTK Budapest, Márton spent nine years abroad in England and Greece at such clubs as Tottenham Hotspur, Coventry City, Sunderland, Leicester City, Manchester City, Ipswich Town, West Bromwich Albion and Asteras Tripolis. He returned to Hungary in 2013 and faced his battle with cancer with great bravery and dignity.

The Hungarian Football Federation offers its deepest condolences to his family.
