Born in Arad, Arad County, which was at the time part of Austria-Hungary, he made a name for himself as one of the best Romanian midfielders of the interwar period. One of his most important achievements was being part of the Romania squad at the 1938 World Cup.
His coaching career started early while he was still an active player. In 1933 he took the coaching courses of the British football school at Folkestone and in 1940 those of the Romanian football school of O.N.E.F. As manager he led Sportul Studenţesc and Jiul Petroşani to the top flight of Romanian football and he won the Romanian national championship and the Romanian Cup with UTA Arad.
After retiring from coaching, he had an active role in the Romanian Football Federation. He wrote two books on football :Fotbalul în glumă ("Football as a Joke") and Din lumea balonului rotund ("From the World of the Round Ball").
