Ferencváros fans celebrated on Tuesday their soccer team’s third championship victory in a row (and 32nd overall), but the very success of the team could rob them of Ukrainian team manager Serhiy Rebrov, the architect of this latest string of victories, daily Magyar Nemzet reports.

Ferencváros beat arch-rival Újpest 3-0 on Tuesday, securing the championship regardless of the outcome of the remaining matches.

“We have seen one of the best matches of Ferencváros this season. We analyzed the match against Kisvárda and the mistakes made on it. It was also a big boost that the fans visited the team at the hotel. Undoubtedly, Fradi has the best fan base in Hungary, I remember when we got into the Champions League group stage, they also celebrated outside the stadium. Three league titles in a row is a fantastic result. I am proud to work at Ferencváros, it is a great club,” Rebrov said at the post-match press conference.

After winning the championship last year, Ferencváros got past the preliminaries and made it into the group matches of the Champions’ League. The success increased both the reputation of the players and their manager, who arrived at Ferencváros in 2018.

Already last autumn, news began circulating that several Western European clubs with pockets much deeper than those of Ferencváros were looking to hire Rebrov, and there was also a report that he was asked to take over the Ukrainian national team. At the press conference about his future, Reborv told Magyar Nemzet, “You should ask the club about this. I still have a contract valid for another year and I love working here.”
