After one season Vadas retired from the FIFA panel early. He had had a confrontation with the Hungarian FA. But he didn't quit and finally hang up his whistle in 1971. Vadas died in 1999, age 78.
- In Hungary there are rumours that Vadas had to retire from the international stage because he refused to help Internazionale beat Celtic in the 1965 European Cup Final. But these stories are rubbish:
First of all: it was not usual for an unexperienced referee to take part in a European Cup Final. Secondly: in 1965 Internazionale beat Benfica (1:0). Thirdly: it's true that Inter was beaten by Celtic, but that was in the 1967 final, and the referee was Kurt Tschenscher from West Germany.
