Alfréd Schaffer (13 February 1893 – 30 August 1945) was a Hungarian football player who has the distinction of being the player who holds the record for number of professional clubs; he played for a total of 21 clubs in a 15 year career which lasted from 1910–1925.[1] He joined MTK Hungária FC in 1915 and helped the club win 3 consecutive league titles[2], and in the latter two of those seasons (1917/18 and 1918/19) he was the top European league goalscorer.[3]

After his playing days ended he became a football manager, and coached clubs such as 1. FC Nuremberg (for whom he also played), AS Roma and Ferencváros. He also coached Hungary at the 1938 FIFA World Cup.

Schaffer, who was Jewish, was interned at Dachau, and was liberated by the Allies.[2] He died in the nearby town of Prien am Chiemsee a few months later.
