Blagoje Paunović (Serbian: Благоје Пауновић) (born 4 June 1947 Pusto Šilovo, near Medveđa) is a former Serbian football defender, and a current manager.


Playing career

Paunović played for 10 seasons with FK Partizan, amassing nearly 300 official appearances with the capital club. During the 70's, he formed an efficient backline at the club, alongside Miroslav Pavlović and Dragan Holcer.

At 28, in 1975, Paunović joined FC Utrecht in the Netherlands. After two seasons abroad, he returned home for a spell with OFK Kikinda, played briefly in the United States, representing Oakland Stompers of the North American Soccer League, and closed out his career also in Belgrade, with lowly FK Sinđelić.

On the international level, Paunović played for Yugoslavia a total of 39 matches, making his debut on November 12, 1967, in a 4–0 home crushing of Albania for the Euro 1968 qualifiers, and participating at the final stages in Italy.

Coaching career

In 1994–95, Paunović, already a coach, was one of five managers in charge of Spain's CD Logroñés, which ranked last with an all-time low 13 points. In 2009, after a long spell with Partizan's youth teams, he signed with Serbian first divisioner FK Smederevo.


Paunović's son, Veljko, is also a former footballer, in attacking positions. He started and finished his extensive career at Partizan, but played mainly in Spain.
