About Sava Antić

  • Sava Antic (Serbian Cyrillic: Ca?a A????) (born 1 March 1930 in Belgrade – 26 July 1998) was a Serbian football player and manager. He won the Yugoslav Cup 3 times, in 1953, 1955, and 1962, being the scorer in all the 3 cup finals.
  • He started his career as a football player in FK Brodarac in 1945.
  • In 1948 he moved to Red Star where he played 36 games and scored 22 goals.
  • The highlight of his playing career started in 1950, when he decided to wear the Blue-White jersey of OFK Beograd where he played until 1963.
  • During that period, he played 520 games and scored 184 goals in official matches.
  • Curiously, in his entire career, he has never been sent off.
  • He played for the youth national team from 1953 to 1956, scoring 7 times in 9 matches.
  • He was later a member of the B national team for which he scored 6 goals in 10 games.
  • As far as the A national team is concerned, he played 5 matches, all of them in 1956, and scored two goals.
  • He was also a member of the Olympic national team, during the Olympic Games in Melbourne, where Yugoslavia won the silver medal.
  • He was one of the best forwards at that period, but was unfortunate to play in the glory days of Rajko Mitic, the legend of Red Star and Yugoslav football.
  • For this reason, he was not given a real chance in the national team.
  • After his career as a player, he became a coach in OFK Belgrade.
  • Sava died in 1998, but he will always remain a legend in the club.
