"If he kicked the ball once, he scored two goals."
Zoltan Czibor, Puskas' team-mate with Kispest and Hungary

"He had a full career in Hungary and he repeated it in Spain with Real Madrid. That's why he is not only world class, but he belongs to the realm of dreams."
Gyula Grosics, Hungarian goalkeeper who played alongside Puskas

"I believe that if a good player has the ball, he should have the vision to spot at least three options. Puskas always saw at least five."
Jeno Buzanszky, Puskas' former Hungary team-mate
