Tomislav Ivić (30 June 1933 – 24 June 2011) was a Croatian football player and manager. Often described as a brilliant strategist, Ivić is credited with helping develop the modern style of the game. In April 2007 the Italian sports daily La Gazzetta dello Sport proclaimed him as the most successful football manager in history, due to his 8 league titles won in 6 different countries.[1]

Ivić managed teams in 14 different countries along with 4 national teams,[2][3][4] and he won titles and cups in seven countries (Yugoslavia, The Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, Portugal, Spain and France).

He won eight top flight championships (3 in Yugoslavia, and 1 each in The Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, Portugal and France), 6 national cups (4 in Yugoslavia and 1 each in Spain and Portugal), an UEFA Super Cup and an Intercontinental Cup.[5]

In Croatia, he coached RNK Split, Hajduk Split, Dinamo Zagreb and the national team; in the Netherlands, he coached Ajax; in Belgium, Anderlecht and Standard Liège; in Turkey, Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe; Avellino was his only experience in Italy; Panathinaikos in Greece; in Portugal, he coached FC Porto and Benfica; in France, he managed Paris Saint Germain and Olympique de Marseille (this one, his last club before retiring, in 2002); in Spain, Atlético Madrid; in United Arab Emirates, Al Wasl FC and the national team; and, in Iran, Persepolis and the national selection.

He died on 24 June 2011, six days before his 78th birthday, in his hometown of Split. He was reportedly suffering from cardiac troubles, as well as diabetes.[6]
