Playing career[edit]

He was a long-time servant of Red Star Belgrade, where he played for eleven years. He was very much loved by Red Star fans, especially after his brother, Milko, joined bitter rivals of FK Partizan. He was known for excellent defending skills, great tackling and powerful shooting. In 1989, he joined Swiss side Servette FC, where he stayed for six seasons and ended his career.

Coaching career[edit]

Gjurovski commenced his coaching career at his former club Servette FC as an assistant, and remained in that position for 4 seasons, in which they won a Swiss title and finished up runner up in another 2. He left this role to take up another assistants role at his other former club Red Star Belgrade after this, and also remained in that role for 3 seasons. During this period, Red Star Belgrade won 2 league titles & 3 domestic cup titles.

In November 2002, he became the new coach of FK Rad, after steering FK Radnički Obrenovac to promotion the season earlier. He left FK Rad after only 1 season, citing differences between the club board & himself.

After a few years out of coaching, Gjurovski returned to Red Star Belgrade in March 2007 as head coach of Red Star Belgrade after Dušan Bajević walked out on the club. Đurovski did well and won the league title in his first season as senior coach 2006-07 season. However, the following 2007-08 started poorly from the getgo as the team struggled & just managed to qualify for the Champions League 2nd qualifying round with a lot of difficulties, beating Levadia in Belgrade 1:0 and losing in Tallinn 1:2. Gjurovski was sacked after that game by club president Dragan Stojković, and was replaced by Milorad Kosanović. Gjurovski remained in the Red Star organization, however, moving to the position of the clubs chief scout.

Just months after his sacking as head coach of Red Star Belgrade, Gjurovski was targeted for the assistants role at J-League underachiever Nagoya Grampus. It was rumored after this that Gjurovski was ultimately sacked by then red star President Dragan Stojković due to the fact that he would be taking the senior coaching position at Nagoya & was determined to take Gjurovski with him as his number 2.

After a 2 year rebuild, Stojković & Gjurovski managed to steer Nagoya to a long awaited 2nd J-League championship.

On 26 November 2013 Gjurovski was appointed as a head coach of the Macedonia national football team.[1]
