Imre Pozsonyi (born December 12, 1880 in Budapest , † (9?) May 1932 in New York ), also known as Jesza Poszony , was a Hungarian football player and coach .


In his playing career, Pozsonyi played as a middle runner for Magyar ÚE , MTK Budapest FC and once for the Hungarian national team . The latter was the Hungarians' first official international match, a 5-0 win against Austria in 1902.

In 1921 he was coach of Cracovia Krakow for a total of 2 years , with whom he won the first Polish championship held in the same year. In 1921 he was also the coach of the Polish national team in their first international match, which was lost 3-0 on December 18, 1921 in Budapest.

In December 1922 he became assistant to the Englishman Jack Greenwell at FC Barcelona . After his release in August 1923, he took over the head coach role until October, when he was replaced by the Englishman Alf Spouncer . In July 1924 he was again head coach, but he was replaced in December by the Englishman Conyers "Ralph" Kirby , under whom the team won the Spanish Cup and the Catalan championship until the end of the season.

Between 1926 and 1928 he coached the Yugoslav club Građanski Zagreb (later known as Dinamo Zagreb ), which he led to the 1928 Yugoslav championship. Then, it is said, he was with Ujpest FC in Budapest.

In the late twenties Pozsonyi emigrated to America , where he led the Real Club España to the championship in Mexico in 1929/30 and died in the USA in 1932 . According to other sources, he died on October 2, 1963 in Budapest.
