Lóránt began playing football at the age of 16 at Kőszegi SE , the club based in his birthplace, and two years later, for the 1942/43 season , he was committed by the first division promoted Haladás Szombathely . In 1943/44 he moved to Nagyváradi AC , with whom he was champion at the end of the season. Via Nemzeti Vasas, in 1944, he returned to Nagyváradi AC, which had since been renamed Libertatea Oradea . The season 1946/47 he played for from the Romanian city of Arad originating UTA Arad , with whom he won the championship at the end of the season.
From 1947 to 1950 he worked for Vasas Budapest , from 1951 to 1956 for Honvéd Budapest and for one season for Váci Vasas . In the Honvéd Budapest team, he played with stars such as Ferenc Puskás and József Bozsik .
From 1942 to 1955, he played 42 international matches for Hungary's national team . The first highlight of his career was winning the Olympic gold medal in 1952 . In 1954 he played five defensive games in the national team and was one of the players who were defeated by Germany in the legendary final of the 1954 World Cup in Bern .
In December 1963 he left Hungary and moved to Germany , where he started from 1964 for the Rheydter Spielverein , until 1974 for 1. FC Kaiserslautern , for MSV Duisburg , for Tasmania Berlin , again for 1. FC Kaiserslautern, for 1 FC Köln , for Kickers Offenbach and for Freiburg FC as a coach.
He then returned to Germany and worked for the Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt that same year . Even before Ernst Happel at Hamburger SV, he was the first coach to introduce spatial coverage in Germany. He let this system play at Eintracht Frankfurt and later at Bayern Munich . At first, spatial coverage did not catch on in Germany; today it is the standard in world football.
At the beginning of December 1977 there was an amicable exchange of coaches: Lóránt moved to Bayern Munich after the 16th Bundesliga matchday for Dettmar Cramer , who had just suffered five defeats in a row, and Cramer to Eintracht Frankfurt. Lóránt the team took on the 12th place and finished it up there . This is the historically worst final placement for Bayern. In December 1978 he was on leave and replaced by his assistant Pál Csernai . Lóránt's last club he looked after in Germany was FC Schalke 04 in 1979 . In 1980 Lóránt returned to Saloniki, where he had celebrated his greatest success. In the spring of the following year he suffered a heart attack during a game of his team against Olympiacos Piraeus in the dugout , of which he died in the stadium.
