Miscellaneous: Detari was married to Andrea Komora, the daughter of his former coach, Imre Komora. Together they have two daughters, but they are now divorced. Detari was nominated five times for a World XI, and once in a European select team. He is the only player since World War II to have been top goalscorer in the Hungarian league for three consecutive seasons. Neither Ferenc Puskas nor Florian Albert managed such a feat. Olympiakos signed him for USD 10 million in the summer of 1988. The transfer is still a record for a Hungarian player. For a short time, he was the third most expensive player in the world behind Diego Armando Maradona and Ruud Gullit.
