From 1920 onwards, starting with Spes Genova; Molnár acted as a player-manager, eventually in 1926 he became just a manager. For much of the time that Molnár was a manager he moved around each season, spending spells at numerous clubs. In 1943 he was forced to leave Italy when the Hungarian army reserve drafted him.
