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 Łódzki Klub Sportowy, where he had between 1923 and 1926 his first coaching experience. After this he spent his first years in Italy, coaching the second division sides of Udinese and CA Faenza and from 1931 to 31 the youth of SS Lazio in Rome.
From 1935 to 1936 he returned to Łódź before moving to Sweden where his first engagement was in 1940 with Västerås SK. In the Between 1942 and 1948 he had his greatest successes with IFK Norrköping. There he achieved between 1943 an 1948 a record five championships and two national cups in 1943 an 1945. When he led Norrköping to the 1948 championship he became the oldest coach in Sweden to achieve this title. He was then aged 54 years, 8 months and 1 day. The record has since been lost to trainer Conny Carlsson with Helsingborgs IF.
After his time in Sweden he returned to Italy where he led AC Milan in 1951 to championship honours and a win in the Latin Cup, an annual tournament of the best teams from France, Spain, Portugal and Italy - an important contest in the absence of any other European competition. 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 SS 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.
