Goran Milojević (Serbian Cyrillic: Горан Милојевић; born 6 December 1964) is a Serbian retired footballer who played as an attacking midfielder.

Club careerEdit

Milojević was born in Aranđelovac, SR Serbia, SFR Yugoslavia. In his country he represented both major clubs, Belgrade's Red Star and FK Partizan, winning the 1988–89 Yugoslav Cup with the latter and scoring in the final against FK Velež Mostar, a 6–1 win.

After one season with Stade Brestois 29 where he was relegated from the French Ligue 1, Milojević moved to Spain where he would spend the better part of his remaining career. He started out at CP Mérida, then moved after a couple of months to La Liga team RCD Mallorca, immediately making an impact although his nine goals (a squad-best) in five months were not enough to prevent relegation, as last.[1]

Milojević then registered an impressive average of 19 goals per campaign in the second division, although Mallorca never promoted in those three years.[1] He returned to the top flight in 1995 with Celta de Vigo, then re-joined former side Mérida in the second level, appearing rarely as they promoted to division one for the second time in their history.

After splitting 1997–98 with two teams, one of them Mexico's Club América, Milojević called it quits at nearly 34. In the beginning of the following decade he took up coaching, managing FK Železnik,[2] FK Rudar Pljevlja,[3] FK Radnički Obrenovac[4] also taking charge of Spanish side Mérida UD, who rose from the ashes of his previous club, folded.[5]

In December 2009, Milojević became head coach of MFK Košice of Slovakia.[6]

International careerEdit

Whilst at Partizan, Milojević collected two caps for Yugoslavia. He was, however, overlooked for the squad selected for the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy. He was now appointed as the head coach for the Philippines national team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Personal lifeEdit

His brother Vladan was also a footballer[7] and so was Goran's son Stefan.[8]
