Gordan Petrić (Serbian Cyrillic: Гордан Петрић; born 30 July 1969) is a Serbian football manager and former player.

Club career[edit]

Petrić made his senior debut with OFK Beograd in the 1985–86 season, as the club suffered relegation from the top flight of Yugoslav football. He was transferred to Partizan in the 1989 winter transfer widow. In the following five years, Petrić won one league title and two national cups, before transferring to Scottish club Dundee United in November 1993. He immediately became a first team regular under manager Ivan Golac, winning the Scottish Cup in his debut season with the club. His consistent performances at Tannadice earned him a move to Rangers in July 1995. Petrić remained with the club for three years, helping them secure their ninth league title in a row, before a spell in England with Crystal Palace. He scored once for the club in a 1–1 draw against Sheffield United.[1]

In the summer of 1999, Petrić moved to Greece and joined AEK Athens. He left the club after only a few months and returned back to Scotland when Jim Jefferies signed him for Heart of Midlothian in December 1999. Petrić remained with Hearts until March 2001, leaving the club two years before the end of his contract by mutual consent.[2] He scored once for Hearts in a 3–2 UEFA Cup win over VfB Stuttgart.[3]

After six months of training with his former club Partizan, Petrić was loaned to Chinese club Sichuan Dahe in March 2002.[4] He briefly stayed there, before retiring from the game.

International career[edit]

Petrić represented Yugoslavia at the 1987 FIFA World Youth Championship, as the team won the tournament. He collected a total of five caps for the senior national team of his country between 1989 and 1997.

Post-playing career[edit]

Between 2007 and 2008, Petrić served as general secretary of Partizan.[5][6] He was subsequently named vice-president of the club in October 2008, alongside Zoran Mirković.[7][8] They both left their positions by September 2009.[9]

In December 2012, Petrić was appointed manager of Bežanija.[10] He left the club in late 2013. Subsequently, together with Ivan Tomić, Petrić was named as assistant to Serbia caretaker Ljubinko Drulović in May 2014.[11]

After two brief stints at Sinđelić Beograd and Zemun, both in 2015, Petrić became manager of Serbian top flight club Čukarički in September 2016.[12]
