Miloš Milutinović (Serbian Cyrillic: Милош Милутиновић; 5 February 1933 – 28 January 2003) was a Serbian footballer and manager. He is regarded as one of the most talented players in Yugoslavia's history and one of the most talented wingers/forwards of all time, being nicknamed "Plava čigra" (Blond Buzzer) for his skills.


Club career

During his club career he played for FK Bor, FK Partizan, OFK Beograd, FC Bayern Munich, RCF Paris, and Stade Français Paris. In the 1955–56 season, he scored two goals in the first ever European Champion Clubs' Cup match, a 3–3 draw between FK Partizan and Sporting Clube de Portugal, then scored four goals in the return leg which Partizan won 5–2 in Belgrade. In the quarter-finals second leg, he scored two goals in a 3–0 win over eventual champions Real Madrid, but that was not enough to overcome Real Madrid's 4–0 win in the first leg.

In total, he played 213 matches and scored 231 goals[1] for FK Partizan, winning two national cup (1954 and 1957). He then moved to OFK Beograd and later to Bayern Munich. In 1959, he underwent surgery for his ongoing lung problems. He stayed one year in Germany before playing in Paris.

International career

He made his full international debut on 21 May 1953 against Wales, in a 5–2 victory. He earned 33 caps in total and represented the country in the 1954 and 1958 World Cups.
