Georgi Hristov (Macedonian: Ѓорѓи Христов, also romanized as Gjorgji Hristov; born 30 January 1976) is a Macedonian former professional footballer who played as a striker.

Hristov made 48 appearances and netted 18 goals for Macedonia between 1995 and 2005, being the second-highest scorer in the country's history.[1]

Club career[edit]

Born in Bitola, Hristov started out with his hometown club Pelister, before transferring to Partizan in 1994. He spent the following three seasons with the Black-Whites, winning back-to-back championships in 1996 and 1997. In June 1997, Hristov was sold to English club Barnsley for a fee of £1.5 million.[2] He scored four league goals in his debut season with the Tykes, as the club suffered relegation from the Premiership.[3] In the following two years, Hristov missed a lot of games due to a knee injury, before eventually leaving the club in 2000. He subsequently joined Dutch club NEC Nijmegen.

International career[edit]

Hristov was capped 48 times for Macedonia, netting a goal on his debut in a 2–2 draw against Armenia on 10 May 1995. He scored a total of 16 goals for the national team, making him the second-highest scorer in the history of Macedonian football, only behind Goran Pandev.

Managerial career[edit]

In October 2011, Hristov was appointed manager of Metalurg Skopje. He was released by the club in late 2012.
