Real Madrid will play a testimonial game in
Budapest on August 14 to raise money for former Real and Hungary great
Ferenc Puskas, organisers said on Tuesday.
Puskas, 78, is in hospital suffering from Alzheimer's disease and the
funds raised from ticket sales will be used to pay his medical expenses.
"We have a contract with the club that they are coming to Budapest to
play a friendly for Puskas with their strongest squad and all their star
players," a spokesman for Hungarian property firm Trigranit, owned by
multi-millionaire Sandor Demjan, told a news conference.
Real will play a team called the "Puskas All Stars" selected by Hungary
coach Lothar Matthaeus, who will also play in the match.
Puskas's Real team mates Alfredo di Stefano and Francisco Gento will
attend the game.
Puskas, Hungary's most famous sportsman, captained his country to win
the 1952 Olympic title.
A year later the "Magical Magyars" became the first overseas team to
beat England at Wembley when they crushed their hosts 6-3.
Puskas is the only player to score four goals in a European Cup final,
when Real crushed Eintracht Frankfurt 7-3 in 1960.
