They also won league and cup doubles in 1985 and 1989. In 1991, the club was renamed Kispest Honvéd FC and adopted its current name in 2003. Budapest Honvéd is coached by Tam Courts of Scotland this season.
“I know Honved as a team with very solid defense that is very difficult to break through. However, we have analyzed our opponent's game and will see to score goals anyway. In a home match we do not have any other objective than victory and I hope that fans will help us at that”, said Cherchesov to the official website of Ferencvaros before the match.
