Leopold Hofmann is former Austrian midfielder. He played mainly as centre wing half and was most known and remembered for his fantastic aerial abilities, an absolute master in aerial game, header specialist who could score goal from all situations in aerial play. Besides Hofmann was very gifted technically, with intelligent positional play, very clever and good in man marking duties as well. Alternating with the Rapid Wien legend Josef Smistik he played as a center half in the legendary Dream Team. With his home club FC First Vienna Leopold Hofmann was also able to win the Mitropacup.Leopold Hofmann began his football career at the Vienna Döbling 1924th Just one year later, on 24 May 1925 he first played as a 19-year-old for the Austrian national team against Czechoslovakia. From the year 1927, more precisely after the 6-0 thrashing against the "arch rivals" Hungary, he was appointed by Hugo Meisl regularly to the team. The runners reached the zenith of his career in the early 1930s. As a team player, he celebrated a surprise 8-1 against Switzerland and a 8:2 against Hungary. Also he could be with the Vienna champion and twice as often to get the Cup on the Hohe Warte. In addition, Leopold Hofmann was with the Blue-Yellow Mitropacupfinale in 1931, the forerunner of the European Cup. The pure-final against Austrian Wiener AC Hofmann's team with two victories could decide for themselves. After the end of the era of the miracle team Leopold Hofmann was increasingly rare to train the national team. Although he was for the football World Cup in 1934 nominated in Italy, where the Austrian team to the semifinals came, he himself played not in any game. Late in his career he could celebrate with Vienna still have a small success: After winning the 1936 Cup final botched Döblinger Hofmann with the Cup the following year. In 1939, the runners eventually ended his career. Leopold Hofmann died in 1976.
