József Dzurják (born in 2 March 1961) is a Hungarian football manager and former player.


His career started in 1983 when he started playing for Diósgyőri VTK where he'll stay three seasons, before moving to the Hungarian giants Ferencváros where he played between 1986 and 1990. He finished his last season with Fradi as league top scorer.[1] This meant that for Dzurják was time to move abroad, signing with the East German 1990 vice-champions Chemnitzer FC, being one of the few foreigners to play in the last season of the DDR-Oberliga. After six months during the winter break, he moved to FK Spartak Subotica where he spend the rest of the season playing in the Yugoslav First League. After this, he returned and played half season with Ferencvaros, before moving again, this time to Cyprus, to play with AC Omonia one and a half seasons. He will return to Hungary and play with III. Kerületi TUE, Vác FC and Diósgyőri VTK before moving to the Maldives in 1996 where he ended his career. He played as a striker.

In March 208 he was appointed the main coach of Club Valencia competing in the Dhivehi League, the top league in the Maldives.[2] Since 2012 he has been assistant manager at Diósgyőri VTK.[3]
