Zlatko Vujović (born August 26, 1958 in Sarajevo, now Bosnia and Herzegovina) is a former Bosnian footballer, who played as a striker.

His twin brother, Zoran, was also a professional footballer; both were Yugoslavian internationals, and both spent a large part of their professional careers in France.

Football career

Vujović started his professional career with HNK Hajduk Split, making his first division debuts at just 18, and going on to score more than 100 goals just in the league for the club (172 overall in 420 matches), while often partnering his brother Zoran. He helped his first club won one league (1979) and one cup (1984), also being pronounced player of the year in 1981 by the Večernji list daily.

In 1986, both siblings moved to France, first with FC Girondins de Bordeaux; in their first season, both were undisputed starters in an eventual double, as Zlatko also scored in the 2-0 cup final win over Olympique de Marseille.

Vujović retired in 1993, and continued to net with an excellent rate until the end, playing in both the first and second levels, with AS Cannes, Paris Saint-Germain, FC Sochaux-Montbéliard and OGC Nice. He earned 70 caps and scored 25 goals for the Yugoslavia national football team, making his debut on April 1, 1979, in a 3-0 win against Cyprus for the Euro 1980 qualifiers, and was included in the squads for the 1982 and 1990 FIFA World Cups, while also playing Olympic football in 1980.

In 2008, Vujović (as his brother the previous year) began a coaching career, starting as assistant manager at his first club, Hajduk.
