Muhamed Mujić (25 April 1933 – 20 February 2016) was a Yugoslav and Bosnian-Herzegovinian footballer. He played for Velež Mostar for the most of his career. He also played at 1956 Summer Olympics for SFR Yugoslavia, winning a silver medal,[1] and at the 1962 FIFA World Cup for SFR Yugoslavia.[2] In the Yugoslavia's game he served as captain[citation needed] in a brutal match that saw him break Soviet defender Eduard Dubinsky's leg, that partially caused his death, seven years later.[3] Although referee Albert Dusch took no action Mujić was sent home by his own federation.[4][5]
