David Kipiani (Georgian: დავით ყიფიანი; 18 November 1951 – 17 September 2001) was a Georgian football midfielder and manager. Kipiani principally played as a playmaker and considered on Georgia's greatest players. He was known for his elegant style of play, dribbling ability and passing range.
Kipiani was not given a chance to play World Cup finals. Many think his peak was in 1982, but missed the Spain and quit playing altogether due to severe leg injury sustained against Kuban Krasdodar on 26 April (Round 4).
He died in Tbilisi, Georgia from injuries sustained in a car crash near Tserovani on 17 September 2001. He was 49 years old. The Georgian Cup and the stadium in the town of Gurjaani were named after him.
Among his titles as a player are Soviet League championship (1978), Soviet Cup (1976 and 1979) and UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (1981) all with FC Dinamo Tbilisi. David Kipiani was named Soviet Footballer of the Year in 1977. As a coach, he led FC Dinamo Tbilisi to 6 Georgian titles and FC Torpedo Kutaisi to 2.
