World wide famous Head Coach

“Before a few years ago I heard from Hunor Harkai and from our first contact I realized that he is a young coach, who is eager to increase his basketball knowledge. Although I did not have the opportunity to cooperate with him more closely, but he impressed me a lot what kind of way he had in the world of basketball also his determination that first in theory than in practical adopt new important assumptions and like this he is growing up to a successfull coach. Also impresses me his willingness to get the necessary experience in interesting places, which are do not belonging to recognizable basketball places. Harkai is on the right way and he has my full support to keep it up! ”

“Harkai is a very very dedicated coach, always looking at the details who never gives up! “


Director of Malta Basketball Association, International FIBA Referee

“I accepted to write a few words on Hunor Harkai as I believe, from what I had observed when I got to know him as a coach when he was in Malta helping out not only his team but also other youths and players, that Harkai has all the potential to have a positive effect on athletes with good leadership and communication skills. I observed that Harkai was quite a ‘tireless’ worker, straight forward person but also a ‘student of the game’ and when working with youths, whilst being tough and fair, he stressed fundamentals, solid work ethics and learning to play the game in the ‘right way’. Harkai never gave me any reason to doubt his job and I never saw him lose his composure even in difficult game situation and having respect for authority. In our conversations off the court I noticed that Harkai has a love for sport and the development of young athletes. I am quite confident that Harkai will be successfull both as a coach and as an individual. ”


President of Phoenix Sports Club

“I have had the pleasure to work with Hunor throughout his coaching stint here in Malta. He is truly passionate person and he loves the game of Basketball. I think he has a very bright future ahead of his as he never shies away from a challenge. I hope our sports paths will cross again and the world of sports definitely needs more people like Hunor. ”

“My name is Jonathan Ransley and have been playing competitive basketball for the past 24 years. In 2014 we won the knockout which i must say a great part of that trophy was thanks to Coach Hunor. Although his coaching methods were somewhat different from what we were used, he nonetheless was able to penetrate the bad habits of us players on an individual level, and more than that he focused on basics.”


  Assistant Coach Aabyhøj Womens League

“I was honored to work with Coach Hunor in the Danish womens league. Coach Hunor was always well prepared, organized and a big inspiration at every practice. His basketball knowledge is second to none and he is the most dedicated coach I have worked with.”

“Harkai came to coach my team in Denmark. I only got to know him for a short period of time. Except of short time, I still got to know a very ambissious, goal-orientated and focused coach. I think my team could have learned so much.”


“During Hunor’s time at Portlaoise Panthers, he brought a great level of experience and a wealth of knowledge with him which saw a noticeable improvement in the development of our players as individuals and as teams. Particularly the players involved in our juvenile academy. Hunor took sole charge of our Senior Women’s Super League Squad as well as the Senior Men’s MABB squad and had vital role in bringing great successes to each team in their respective leagues. We will be forever memorable of Hunor’s time at Portlaoise Panthers for the developlment, professionalism and experience in which he brought to our club.”
