Stanislav Griga (born 4 November 1961) is a former Slovak football player and later a football manager. He played 34 matches for Czechoslovakia and scored eight goals.[1]

He was a participant in the 1990 FIFA World Cup, and had a headed goal controversially disallowed for offside in a first-round game against Italy at Stadio Olimpico.

Griga joined AC Sparta Prague as manager in October 2005.[2] He stayed at Sparta until August 2006, finishing with a record of 12 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses in his 27 games in charge[3]

On 26 April 2012, Griga was named as joint coach of the Slovakia national team with Michal Hipp, who has served as interim coach since January.[4]

In June 2013, Griga and Hipp were sacked from their positions with the Slovakia national football team and replaced by Ján Kozák. [5]
