Đorđe "Đokica" Vujadinović (Serbian Cyrillic: Ђорђе Вујадиновић; 29 November 1909 – 5 October 1990) was a Serbian international football player and manager.



He was born in Kolari, a suburb of Smederevo, but still very young, came to Belgrade to live with his uncle. While playing football with his friends in a sandy field in the Kalemegdan park in the center of the city, he was spotted by a "older serious man with hat" who invite him, together with other two boys, to come and make tests in, the biggest club from that period, BSK. He passed, and joined the youth team, in which played a wonderful generation of players, in which Tirnanić, Valjarević, Krčevinac, Zloković and him make the forward line, that will be, some years latter, the attack of the BSK team that won many Championships in the 1930's. Those late 1920's were years of great expansion in the Yugoslav Kingdom and football was starting to be extremely popular. In those times, the players started to be professionalized and started to be payed monetarily, but he refused, saying that his earnings as a bank employee were enough for him and that he played football only by pleasure. This is a great example of his calm and honest character. Until 1940 he played around 400 matches for the club, was national Champion five times and twice a league top-scorer.[1]

National team

Before the WWII, the Yugoslav team was unimaginable without him in the squad. Between 1929 and 1940 he played 44 international matches, and didn't played more because of his duties as a bank functioner. He was one of the main players of the Yugoslavia national football team in the 1930 FIFA World Cup, and scored a total of 18 goals for the national team.[2]

Manager career

After returning from captivity, in the end of the Second World War, he ended his playing career and dedicates to the work with the younger generations. He starts coaching the youth teams of FK Partizan and latter OFK Belgrade, where he also managed the senior team in 1960-61.[3] He was also the manager of the Yugoslavia national under-21 football team. While in a zenith of his managerial time, he invited Mr.Miljan Miljanić ( the latter President of the Yugoslav Football Federation), and with whom had already worked before, to substitute him in the job.
