Tibor Benedek and Tamas Kasas signed by Honvéd

Excitement in Hungary were two three-time Olympic champions, who were supposed to be retired, signed transfer forms to the club of Groupama-Honvéd in what can be called a intent statement. Hungarian legends Tibor Benedek and Tamas Kasas, when active to play, can be seen in their home country throwing some ball for the Budapest-based side. But the word 'if' has to be emphasized. Tibor Benedek is awaiting the decision on the national team coaching staff's future, which could change his situation, while Tamas Kasas will not always be in Hungary throughout the year, but both stated to be playing for Honvéd when available, much to the delightment of the Hungarian water polo fans who see two of their greatest players return to their home country and possibly join forces with the earlier signed Gergely Kiss and Barnabas Steinmetz, who both played for Vasas the past season.

After a rather unhappy start of the summer, with some sever financial troubles forcing several key-player including Marton Szivos and Balazs Harai to go elsewhere, the announcemnt of the departure of both Benedek and Kasas delivered a boost in Budapest. With fellow Olympic gold medallist goalkeeper Istvan Gergely back from his summer adventure in Malta, reaching the playoffs finals with his team Sliema, the experienced Honvéd side is looking to make waves this season starting in the domestic Cup tournament, set for next weekend.

'Groupama'-Honvéd is a former Hungarian powerhouse who won the Hungarian national title six consecutive times - from 2001 up until 2006 - and took the national Cup eight times (last one in 2010). In addition, the major international price was claimed in 2004 when now members Gergely Kiss and Istvan Gergely were part of the team that clinched the EuroLeague title after having finished runners-up in 2002, 2003 en again in 2005. Montenegrin side Jadran Herceg Novi was defeated 7-6 in the final
