Savo Milosevic

Where is Savo Milosevic now?

Savo Milosevic, Aston Villa’s record signing when they paid £3.5 million for him in 1995, retired from playing in 2008 after a season playing in Russia for Rubin Kazan.

Although Milosevic was renowned for his goal droughts during his time in the Premier League enduring the nickname ‘Miss-a-lot-evich’ by the media, he still bagged 29 goals in 90 league games and scored the first goal in Villa’s 1996 League Cup win.

He was also an important player for the Yugoslavia and Serbia national sides and finished his international career with 102 caps and representing them at the 2000 UEFA Championships where he was joint-winner of the Golden Boot.

Upon retiring from playing, Milosevic took some time out of the game before making a return in 2011 as assistant coach of the Montenegro national side.

He was only in the position for one season before joining the Serbian Football Association as technical director for their youth and under 21 teams.

During his time in this role, the Serbian under 19’s team won the European Championships in 2013 and reached the semi finals in 2014.

In November 2014 he was elected as vice-president of the Serbian Football Association with the task of taking care of representative selection at all levels including the senior squad.

He made a return to football management in March 2019 when he was appointed in his current position as manager of FK Partizan.
