István Brockhauser (born 3 May 1964 in Budapest) is a former Hungarian football player.

Hungary National Football Team[edit]

From 1990 to 1992, he was the No 2 goalkeeper of the Hungarian national team behind Zsolt Petry under the Hungarian coach Kálmán Mészöly and Imre Jenei. Later on, he was replaced as No2 goalkeeper by Zoltán Végh.

KRC Genk[edit]

His biggest successes Istvan reached while playing for Belgian topclub KRC Genk. He was member of the very successful and popular generation of the end of the 90's, amongst Branko Strupar, Souleymane Oulare, Thordur Ghudjonsson, Mike Origi, Domenico Olivieri, Wilfried Delbroek and others.

In his six years with KRC Genk, Istvan grew to be one of the most popular players in the clubs history. He was infamous for firing on the Genk fans when he walked to his goal, waving his arms and cheering to the fans while the crowd chanted 'Brockie! Brockie! Brockie!'. 'Brockie', as he was called by the fans, became one of the clubs icons and a living legend for the Genk fans.

In the 2001 season he broke his leg after a harsh tackle from Korean SK Beveren striker Lee Sang Il, after which the entire stadium yelled and boo-ed the striker and the other Genk players looked for the Korean to take revenge. Istvan recovered in two months, but lost his place to Jan Moons with whom Brockhauser had been challenging to be first keeper in Genk.

The 2002 season, when Genk became Belgian champions for the second time, was Brockhausers last season at KRC Genk. He completed the season as second keeper behind Jan Moons, only gaining some minor time on the pitch with a heroic goodbye from Genk fans at the end of that seasons final game, against SK Lokeren.
