With altogether 11 major titles he remains one of the most successful football coaches of all time.
He began his coaching career in 1920s in Poland, in ŁKS Łódź, where he had his first coaching experience. In the 1940s he went to Sweden, where he had his greatest successes with IFK Norrköping. There he achieved a record five championships (1943, 45, 46, 47, 48) and two national cups (1943, 45).1 When he led Norrköping to the 1948 championship he became the oldest coach in Sweden to achieve this title, a special honour he retains to date. He was then aged 54 years, 8 months and 1 day.
After his time in Sweden he returned to Italy where he led A.C. Milan in 1951 to championship honours. He coached the Italian national team in the 1954 FIFA World Cup. In 1961 he won another title in Italy when his side Fiorentina defeated Lazio 2–0 in the cup final.
In the 1963–64 season he took S.L. Benfica to the double of championship and cup of Portugal.
Lajos Czeizler will always be remembered as a fine example for the plenitude of fine coaches Hungary has given to the sport.citation needed
