Miklós Lendvai started his career in Zalaegerszeg in 1991, and played most of his professional football in Hungary for the Zala team, but also made a spell at the Budapest club Ferencváros.

He has also played abroad for Girondins Bordeaux and Lugano in France, and in Belgium for Beerschot and Geel. As a professional, however, he played most of his matches for Charleroi.
