Gyula Barátky (Romanian : Iuliu Baratky; 14 May 1910 – 14 April 1962) was an ethnic Hungarian football player who represented both Hungary and Romania internationally. His preferred position was the half right.


He played a total of 155 games in the national Romanian championships (scoring 100 goals), starting on 10 September 1933 (Venus București – Crișana Oradea 0–1). He won four Romanian Cups in 1937, 1939, 1940, 1941, all with Rapid București.

He debuted in the Hungary national football team in 1930, and played nine games with no goals scored. In 1933, he started to play for the Romania national football team, for which he played 20 games and scored 13 goals. He appeared in the 1938 World Cup, scoring a goal against Cuba.

After his last game (Oțelul Reșița – RATA Târgu Mureș 5–3), he coached RATA Târgu Mureș for a while and, for a very short term, the Romania national team.

Stories about his skills are still a source of pride for Rapid București supporters. Hundreds of thousands[ citation needed ] read Finala se joacă azi ("The final is played today") or Glasul roților de tren ("Voice of the train wheels"), written by Ioan Chirilă, an important Romanian sports writer, in which Barátky plays a central role.
