Gábor Bori (born 16 January 1984 in Szombathely, Hungary) is a Hungarian footballer currently playing for MTK Budapest FC. He was seen as a player with a very bright future in Hungary.[1]

Career[edit]

Bori was given a trial by Leicester City manager Ian Holloway on 17 December 2007,[2] and he signed a loan deal on 8 January 2008 until the end of the season, linking up with compatriot Zsolt Laczkó, who arrived four days earlier.[3] Part of his motivation for joining Leicester was Hungarian goalkeeper Márton Fülöp, who before being recalled to his parent club, helped him "a lot" during his trial period.[4] Issued the number 34 shirt, both he and Laczkó were keen to earn permanent deals to stay at the club.[5] Bori made his debut against Coventry City at the Walkers Stadium on 12 January, making four crosses and five shots in a 2–0 victory.[6] He played a total of six league games as Leicester were relegated at the end of the season; a permanent deal never took place.

International[edit]

Bori made his senior debut in a 3–0 friendly win over Antigua and Barbuda on 18 December 2005 at the Florida International University in Miami, earning his first and only cap courtesy of then-manager Lothar Matthäus.[7] His last call up to the national team was on 28 March 2007, as an unused substitute in a 2–0 Euro 2008 qualifying win over Moldova.[8]
