At the end of 1956, Ferenc Puskás, the great Hungarian star, published his most precious memories on a sheet of the most recent edition of the renowned France Football. Among several statements of his career, a direct claim to the Germans was made. In that statement, Ferenc Puskás said he went to the German locker room to congratulate the winners, but found the players on the floor, groaning and with a smell of medicine in the air. Puskás claimed they were doped.
A fight broke out between the German and French press. Some of West Germany's most renowned officials have accused Puskás of being a liar. Some even claimed that they did not see Puskás in the German dressing room. On the other hand, the French press remained in defense of the Hungarian star.
While Budapesti Vegyes toured Rio de Janeiro in 1957, Puskás was interviewed and asked about this topic. Puskás said:
- Leave it as it is. After all, it can't be worse than the Hungarian Revolution - said the Hungarian star.
After that, in the most natural voice in the world, Puskás denied having written such a thing and said he did not know that a French newspaper had published his memoirs. Due to this accusation, France Football published a photocopy of Puskás' handwritten contract. In fact, Puskás was paying France Football for them to publish his memoirs.
In March, Puskás met with some West German authorities at the Park Hotel Schönbrurin. After the forty-minute meeting, a declaration was signed. In a statement, Puskás said the allegations made under his name in the French newspaper were false.
