Managerial careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Starčević started his coaching career in 2010 when he became an assistant manager at FK Borac Banja Luka. After two years, in 2012, Starčević was named the new manager of Borac. He left the club in May 2013.

After leaving Borac, on 11 June 2013, he became the new manager of FK Rudar Prijedor.[1] In September 2013, Starčević was sacked after drawing 4 and losing 3 out of 7 matches with Rudar.

KrupaEdit

On 24 January 2014, Starčević became the new manager of FK Krupa. In May 2014, he won the Second League of Republika Srpska (Group West) with Krupa, promoting the club to the First League of the Republika Srpska.

In May 2016, Starčević won the club's first ever and historic First League of the Republika Srpska in the 2015–16 season and promoted the club to the Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina.[2]

Starčević once again made FK Krupa history by leading the club to the 2017–18 Bosnian Cup final in which Krupa lost to FK Željezničar Sarajevo in both matches (2–0 at Sarajevo and 2–4 at Krupa na Vrbasu), thus finishing as cup runners-up.[3]

On 31 May 2014, after almost four and a half years as the club's manager and making the best results in the club's history so far, he left Krupa.[4]

Tuzla CityEdit

On 12 June 2018, two weeks after leaving Krupa, Starčević became the new manager of newly promoted club FK Tuzla City, at that time still known as FK Sloga Simin Han.[5]

His first official win as Tuzla City's manager came on 4 August 2018, in a 0–1 away win against FK Mladost Doboj Kakanj.[6]

On 23 February 2019, 8 months after being appointed as the club's manager, Starčević left Tuzla City after making not the best results, which culminated with a 0–3 home loss to FK Sarajevo on the 20. matchday of the 2018–19 Bosnian Premier League season.[7]

Return to KrupaEdit

On 12 March 2019, Starčević came back to the club he had great success with, Krupa. Almost 10 months after leaving the club, he came back with a goal, if possible, to save Krupa from relegation from the Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina, where the club is currently last placed in the current season.[8]

In his first game back, Krupa made a good result by tying 0–0 against FK Sarajevo on 17 March 2019.[9]

His first win came on 13 April 2019, a 5–2 home win against NK Čelik Zenica.[10] Even though Krupa made good results with Starčević as the manager and won a reasonable 17 points in 11 league games, it still wasn't enough to escape relegation, as the club finished on 11th place, only 3 points off of safe and 10th placed Tuzla City, the club he managed right before being appointed as the FK Krupa manager. [11]

He left Krupa for a second time in June 2019, after his contract with the club expired.[12]

Radnik BijeljinaEdit

On 11 November 2019, Starčević was named the new manager of FK Radnik Bijeljina, replacing Mladen Žižović who was at that position for over two years.[13] In his first game as Radnik manager, Starčević's team beat FK Mladost Doboj Kakanj in a 0–4 away, league match win on 23 November 2019.[14] His first loss with Radnik came on 1 December 2019, a 0–1 home league loss to FK Velež Mostar.[15]
