Viktor Hierländer (born June 7, 1900 in Vienna ; † January 20, 1982 ) was an Austrian football player and coach .

Player career


Hierländer began playing football in 1915 at Floridsdorfer AC , the football club from Vienna's 21st district . In the 1916/17 season he was already a member of the combat team , which was one of the strongest teams in the league during the war years. In his debut season he contributed nine point goals to the runner-up title. After the FAC narrowly failed twice in a row at SK Rapid Wien , the first (and so far only) championship title in the club's history was achieved in the 1917/18 season .

In November 1919, Hierländer left his home club and moved to Germany to the northern Bavarian regional division SpVgg Fürth , where he formed a strong internal storm together with Leonhard Seiderer and Andreas Franz . After victories against VfTuR 1889 Munich-Gladbach 7-0, in which he scored three goals, and against the United Breslauer Sportfreunde 4-0, in which he scored one goal, he stood with his new team on June 13, 1920 Final for the German championship , which was lost 2-0 to 1. FC Nürnberg . Hierländer was the most successful goalscorer of the final tournament with four goals. In three seasons he played 32 league games for the Fürth and scored 31 goals. In 1922 he left the club and first played for one season in the district league of Southern Bavaria for Swabian Augsburg , with which he was also the Southern German cup winner , and finally - from September to November 1923 - in the district league of Bavaria for FC Bayern Munich , for the he scored five goals in six league games. He made his debut on September 16, 1923 (1st matchday) in a 3-2 win in the away game against Nuremberg FV , in which he scored his first league goal with the goal to 2-1. He played his last league game on November 1, 1923 (7th matchday) in a 3-3 draw with local rivals TSV 1860 Munich, to which he contributed to 2-2 with a penalty kick in the 45th minute.

In December 1923 he returned to Vienna and joined the Viennese amateur sports club . Although the FAC tried to force Hierländer to return, arguing that the club had not been released on the occasion of the move to Germany and that the player was therefore only eligible to play for the FAC in Austria, the association decided in favor of the amateurs. Already in his first season with the "Violets" he achieved the first championship title in the club's history, and the cup was also won. In the following season they had to admit defeat to SC Hakoah Wien in the championship , but won the cup again. During these two seasons, Hierländer was mostly used as a right winger or connector, but his goalscoring remained rather modest. This changed abruptly in the 1925/26 season when he moved into the middle of the storm. With 22 goals this season, he finished second in the list of goalscorers, behind his team player Gustav Wieser . The amateurs, now renamed Austria , won the championship and the cup.

At the beginning of the 1926/27 season , however, he lost his regular seat to Matthias Sindelar and was only used irregularly. Since after the successful North American tour of the Hakoah Austrian players were very popular in the United States, he decided to move to New York, where his team players Kálmán Konrád and Johann Tandler also moved. Hierländer signed with the New York Giants , for whom he played from December 1926 and scored 10 goals in 21 games. After this season he returned to Vienna and ended his active career after a season with Vienna AC , with which he reached the cup final again.

National team

He made his debut for the national team on December 13, 1925 in Liège in a 4: 3 win over Belgium , where he scored his first international goal with the goal of 4: 2 in the 55th minute . On March 14, May 2 and September 19, 1926 he came against the selection of the ČSR (2: 0; scorer to 1: 0) and twice against the selection of Hungary (3: 0 and 2: 3) each 90 minutes Commitment. He played his last international game on January 8, 1928 in Brussels in a 2-1 win over Belgium, to which he contributed to the 1-0 goal in the eighth minute. In the same month he also played a game in the Vienna city selection against Paris .

Coaching career

After the end of his playing career, he struck a career as a coach. His first team was Cracovia Krakow , which he coached for three seasons and with which he won the championship title in 1930 . He then worked for one season with BSC Young Boys before moving to Pro Patria Alexandria in Egypt , where he worked for three years. After his return to Vienna in 1935 he took over the coaching position at SK Admira Vienna for the next three years and led the “ Jedleseer ” to two Austrian championship titles. In 1938 he accepted an offer from the Turkish Football Association and was responsible for coaching training in Ankara until 1940. In 1941 he worked in Brno as an association trainer for German clubs in the Protectorate of Bohemia , and in 1942 as a sports teacher in the Lower Danube region .

After the Second World War , he took on an engagement in the Lower Austrian Football Association, where he was responsible for the regional selection and worked in the youth sector. In 1952 he was also responsible for the national amateur team , which was specially brought back to life for the Olympic football tournament that was held from July 15 to August 2 . The 4: 3 win in the round of 16 against hosts Finland was followed by the 1: 3 defeat in the quarter-finals against Sweden. In the 1954/55 season he was the trainer of SK Rapid Wien, then club secretary at Austria Wien. From 1966 to 1967 he was in charge of the amateur national team , with which he won the European title in 1967 under his leadership .
