Márton Esterházy (born 9 April 1956 in Budapest) is a retired Hungarian football player. He is a descendant of the Esterházy aristocratic family. After retiring, like his famous writer brother Péter Esterházy, he became a published author himself as well. He is also the head of the Hungarian Futsal Committee, and in February 2007 became a UEFA controller.[1]

Club career[edit]

Márton played for Hungarian side Budapest Honvéd, until he was acquired by AEK Athens. His acquisition in the 1985 season was considered a great achievement for AEK Athens but, after two good years, he was released in the winter period of 1987 following a series of poor performances. He was picked up by Panathinaikos, failed to impress in the 1987 or 1988 season and was released in December 1988.

International career[edit]

He scored 11 goals for the Hungarian national team,[2] and was a participant at the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico, where Hungary failed to progress from the group stage. Esterházy scored the first goal in the 2–0 win against Canada.
