Fuad Muzurović (Cyrillic: Фуaд Музуровић) (born 3 November 1945 in Bijelo Polje, PR Montenegro, FPR Yugoslavia) is a Bosnian football manager and was the head coach of Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team. He was appointed on 21 December 2006, and this is his second time as a national team manager as he was in the same role in the 1995-1998 period failing to qualify for any of the major tournaments.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Although he didn't have an international playing career, he is still remembered as a quality full-back playing for his hometown club FK Jedinstvo Bijelo Polje and FK Sarajevo where FK Sarajevo won the Yugoslav First League in 1966-67 season.

Managerial career[edit]

His managerial skills led him to various countries with good success although he didn't manage to win many trophies. He coached FK Sarajevo in three periods,with the first one from 1977 to 1981 in ex-Yugoslavian First League achieving a runner-up place in 1980. After that he was the manager of FK Priština from 1983 to 1984 managing to drive the small newcomer side to the best position in their history when they finished 8th in the Yugoslavian First League in the 1983/1984 season. The next appointment was at Adana Demirspor in Turkey in 1987. His second appointment as FK Sarajevo manager came in the 1991/1992 season but it was never finished due to the outbreak of Bosnian war. After the war,he was the first manager of the newly founded Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team managing to clinch a historical victory against Denmark in a 3-0 thriller in Sarajevo. Failing to qualify, he was replaced with Faruk Hadžibegić in 1998. He had a two-month spell as Adanaspor manager in the 1998/1999 season[2] from where he went to Qatar's Al Arabi in 1999. The third appointment as the FK Sarajevo manager came in the 2001/2002 season when he took over the team in the winter-break and in the six-month period he managed to lead them to the Football Cup of Bosnia and Herzegovina title. He was the manager of Al Masry in Egypt in 2002. The Cerezo Osaka (Japan) board appointed him as their manager in 2004 but he left after leading them only in two games which is 2nd fastest sacking in the J-League.
