István Sztáni (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈiʃtvaːn ˈstɒni]; born 19 March 1937) is a former football manager and a retired Hungarian football striker.

Sztani left Hungary for Eintracht Frankfurt and faced a one year FIFA ban. With the Main siders he won the German championship in 1959. At the end of the season he moved to Standard Liège of Belgium and stayed there until 1965 when he returned to Frankfurt. In his second stint he amounted 21 Bundesliga appearances for Eintracht.

In the season 1975-76 Sztani was manager at VfB Stuttgart in der 2. Bundesliga Süd but was fired on 31 March 1976 when the planned promotion 1. Bundesliga was almost out of reach.

After this tenure Sztani managed other numerous clubs.
