Vlada Stošic (Serbian Cyrillic: Bлaдa Cтoшић, born 31 January 1965) is a Serbian retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

He is best known for his spell with Red Star Belgrade in the 1980s and 1990s, being part of the side's European Cup victory in 1991.

Club career[edit]

Stošić was born in Vranje, Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. During his early career he represented Red Star Belgrade, who also loaned him to FK Rad, FK Radnicki Nis and a club in Australia. In Red Star's 1990–91 victorious campaign in the European Cup he played the last minutes of the final match, which went into extra time as the club emerged victorious over Olympique de Marseille after a penalty shootout.

Stošić played in the last edition of the Yugoslavian League before he left for Spain in January 1992, where he proceeded to be an undisputed starter for both RCD Mallorca and Real Betis, although he was relegated in his first year in the Balearic Islands.

Having not having featured at all in the first half of 1996–97 season with Betis, Stošić moved to Mexico with Atlante FC, where he teamed up with former Red Star teammate Miodrag Belodedici. The ensuing summer he closed out his career at 34, with another modest team, Portugal's Vitória de Setúbal.

In 2010 Stošić returned to Betis, working with the Andalusians as director of football.[1][2] He was relieved of his duties on 22 December 2013 shortly after manager Pepe Mel, due to poor results.[3]

International career[edit]

On 12 September 1990 Stošić gained his sole cap for Yugoslavia, in Belfast against Northern Ireland; it consisted of one minute, as he replaced legendary Dragan Stojković in a 2–0 win for the UEFA Euro 1992 qualifiers, with the nation winning its group but not being allowed to participate.
