Nicknamed Zagi, Zagorčić played as a defender and began his career with FK Novi Sad. In 1997 he moved to Bulgarian club Litex Lovech, where he won two Bulgarian A Group titles. In this time Zagorčić made his debut for the Bulgarian national team under manager Hristo Bonev prior to the 1998 World Cup.[2] He was a member of the Bulgarian 2004 European Football Championship squad.

Zagorčić retired from playing professional football in November 2005.

Managerial careerEdit

In July 2006 Zagorčić joined the coaching staff of his former club Litex Lovech, as he was appointed assistant to manager Ljupko Petrović. In the summer of 2013, he was appointed as manager of Litex, replacing Hristo Stoichkov, who had stepped down as head coach. He was released from his duties in late March 2014.

On 11 May 2017, Zagorčić was appointed as a manager of Slavia Sofia after the bad form of the team under Vladimir Ivanov.[3] In May 2018, he led the team to a victory in the Bulgarian Cup, the first one in 22 years.
