Tibor Dombi (Hungarian pronunciation:  [ˈtibor ˈdombi] ; born 11 November 1973) is a Hungarian former professional footballer who played as a right midfielder. [1] He spent most of his career with Debreceni VSC, where he amassed over 400 league appearances in two stints separated by spells at Eintracht Frankfurt in Bundesliga and at FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie.



Born in Püspökladány, Dombi came through the youth setup of Debreceni VSC, and joined the senior team in 1992. He made his debut for the Hungarian national team in 1994, and got 35 caps and one goal until 2001, when he retired from international football. [2] He was a participant at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, where Hungary failed to progress from the group stage. He stayed in Debrecen until 1999, celebrating Debreceni VSC's first domestic cup success just before he left for Eintracht Frankfurt. Dombi started his career in Germany well playing in most of the matches in the first half of the season. [3] However, due to language problems and a conflict with the club's manager, Felix Magath,[ citation needed ] he left at the end of the season. [3]

He joined FC Utrecht, the team he played for two seasons before he made his return to Hungary. After he returned to Debrecen, the club's Golden Era started, during which the team won the Hungarian League three times in a row. (Before 2005, Debrecen did not manage to win the league.) In 2009, he was the member of the team that won Debrecen's fourth domestic title.

International career

Dombi made his debut on 1 June 1994, in Eindhoven against the Netherlands.
