Hungary have named former Brescia defender Marco Rossi to replace Belgian Georges Leekens as national team coach, the country's Football Association (HFA) announced on Tuesday.

George Leekens has taken over the Hungary national team.

Former Belgium and Algeria coach George Leekens was appointed Hungary manager on Monday.

The Hungarian Football Federation gave Leekens a two-year contract to the end of qualifying for the 2020 European Championship, with the option of a six-month extension if the team qualify.

Bernd Storck qualified Hungary to Euro 2016 but not the 2018 World Cup.

The Hungarian Football Federation says Bernd Storck is out as coach of the national team, which he led to the 2016 European Championship, its first appearance there in 44 years.

Hungary last participated in the World Cup in 1986 in Mexico.

Storck, from Germany, was also the federation sporting director and took over the top team in July 2015, compiling a record of eight...
