Dezső Liszkai will take up the position of academy director at one of Hungary's top academies, the Puskás Academy, in October 2020. Previously, he also served as director of youth and education. In recent years, Puskás Akadémia has called up a number of players to the Hungarian national team, including László Kleinheisler, Roland Sallai, Márk Tamás and Zsolt Nagy. The Puskás Ferenc Football Academy works with small and large training clubs across the country, with nearly fifty partner clubs that help keep the most talented footballers in the academy's sights.
