István Nyers ( ), also known as Stefano Nyers (25 May 1924 - 9 March 2005) was a Hungarian football (soccer) player. Although he played in only two international matches for Hungary, he is considered one of the greatest football legends of his country, reaching the peak of his career in the 1940s and 1950s.


Nyers was born in Freyming-Merlebachmarker, Mosellemarker, Francemarker into an immigrant Hungarian mining family; his younger brother was Ferenc Nyers.

He began his professional career with Újpest FC of Budapestmarker, seeing them win the Hungarian League in 1945 and 1946. In 1946 he transferred briefly to the Czechoslovakianmarker team FK Viktoria Žižkov and then to the French club Stade Français.

After two years in Paris he was recruited by the Italianmarker first division side Inter Milan. Here he developed to one of the strongest forwards in the history of Serie A. With 26 goals in his first season he became the top scorer of the league. In 182 games for Inter he scored a total of 133 goals. Twice, in 1953 and 1954, he saw Inter become Italian champions.

After winning the championship for the second time Nyers left Milan and changed via Servette FC of Genevamarker to AS Roma, where he remained for two years. A season with the Catalonianmarker sides CF Barcelona, Terrassa FC and CD Sabadell followed before he played out the remainder of his career with minor league Italian clubs.

Nyers retired from the professional game in 1961. During his retirement he lived for several years in Milanmarker before settling in Suboticamarker, Serbiamarker until his death in 2005 at the age of 80.
