Club careerEdit

After coming through the youth system of Partizan, Krčmarević made his first-team debut in the 1983–84 season. He went on loan to Yugoslav Second League side Bor in early 1986 and spent there the next one and a half years. In the summer of 1987, Krčmarević joined OFK Beograd, scoring 24 goals in 57 appearances over the next two seasons in the Second League.

In the summer of 1991, Krčmarević returned to his parent club Partizan.[1] He spent two seasons in his second spell at Stadion JNA and collected two trophies.[2] In the summer of 1993, Krčmarević moved abroad for the second time and joined Cypriot club Apollon Limassol. He was the team's top scorer in each of the following three seasons and won the championship in his debut season.

International careerEdit

Krčmarević was additionally called up to Yugoslavia's UEFA Euro 1992 squad. However, the country received a ban just days before the tournament due to the Yugoslav Wars and the team returned home.[3]

Managerial careerEdit

After serving as manager of OFK Beograd, Krčmarević spent two years at the helm of the Serbia national under-21 team, between 2007 and 2009. He left the position after the team exited in the group stage at the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship.[4]

From February to October 2010, Krčmarević was manager of Apollon Limassol, winning the Cypriot Cup in the 2009–10 season. He also briefly worked at fellow Cypriot First Division side Anorthosis from November to December of the same year.[5]

In 2011, Krčmarević took charge of the Kazakhstan national under-21 team, signing a contract until the end of 2012. He also simultaneously served as manager at Kazakhstan Premier League side Zhetysu in 2012.
