The 43-year-old former central defender won 84 caps for France, playing in the World Cup final with Les Bleus in 2006.

He spent most of his career in England including spells for Chelsea – where he won two Premier League titles – Arsenal and Tottenham before retiring in 2014.

Gallas, who has lived in Hungary for several years according to the club, will focus on coaching defenders in its youth teams.
