Dr. György Sárosi (born on 5 August 1912 as György Stefanicsics, died on 20 June 1993) was a Hungarian footballer.

Sarosi was a complete footballer renowned for his versatility and technique among other things, and he played in several positions for Ferencváros TC and Hungary. Essentially a second striker, he could also operate in midfield or central defence, and he helped Ferencváros TC win five Hungarian league titles between 1932 and 1941. He is considered one of the greatest players of the pre-war era.

He scored a goal in the 1934 FIFA World Cup, but his finest hour came when he captained Hungary to the 1938 FIFA World Cup finals, where he scored five goals in the tournament, including one in the final to reduce Italy's lead to 3-2, although a Silvio Piola goal eventually finished off the Hungarians. He finished with the bronze ball for being the third top goalscorer of the tournament.

He was named the 60th European Player of the Century in the IFFHS' Century Elections.[1]

He is also 5th in the Goalscoring for the Hungarian national team.[2]

After his retirement he moved to Italy, where he managed a number of clubs, including Genoa, Juventus, AS Bari and AS Roma. He was also manager of FC Lugano.[3] He died in 1993 aged 80.
