Csernai died Sunday after an undisclosed illness. His death was announced Monday by Bayern Munich and the Hungarian Football Federation.

Csernai was a midfielder and played briefly for Hungary before defecting in 1955 while his homeland was under communist rule.

After retiring as a player in 1964, Csernai coached in Germany and Belgium before working with Bayern Munich between 1978 and 1983. Later, he coached teams in Greece and Portugal, among other countries.

While coaching North Korea in 1991, the team earned a politically charged 2-1 victory over the United States in an exhibition game in Washington.
