Mansaré Anna Manty survived the accident with minor injuries

"Like most of my teammates I was asleep when the accident happened, so I do not remember anything about it. I don't know exactly what happened. Fortunately, I suffered no serious injuries, so I was able to climb out of the bus through the window. Suddenly, I did not know where I was, I was a little dizzy" recalled the accident Mansaré Anna Manty, who suffered minor injuries in the collision that killed the manager of HAT-AGRO UNI Győr Péter Tapodi and the head-coach of the basketball team Ákos Füzy.

Due to the crash, the bus turned on its side. Club owner Péter Tapodi and head coach Ákos Füzy who lost their lives in the accident sat in the front of the bus. The bus driver suffered neck injury, and he is still in shock because of what happened.

I am sure they don't need to import players and should'nt.I loved my team but when I found out none of the palyers were from my town ect I got mad and knew I did'nt have a chance to join the team and stopped following pro sports.It's like giving automatic citizenship like in amerika to a kenyan that don't speak english to compete in the olympics and is cheating
