Leo Lerinc (Serbian Cyrillic: Лео Леринц; born 30 December 1975) is a Serbian former footballer who played as a midfielder.[1]


A graduate of the youth system at his hometown club Vojvodina, Lerinc made his first-team debut in 1994. He was a regular member of the team that reached the finals of the 1998 UEFA Intertoto Cup.[1] During the 1999 winter transfer window, Lerinc signed with Red Star Belgrade. He spent three and a half seasons at Marakana, winning two championship titles and three national cup trophies.

In August 2002, Lerinc moved abroad and joined Swiss side St. Gallen.[2] He made 13 league appearances and scored one goal in the 2002–03 season, as the club suffered relegation from the top flight. After six months without competitive football, Lerinc signed with Spanish side Ciudad Murcia in January 2004.[3]

In October 2007, just four months upon his return to Vojvodina,[4] Lerinc announced his retirement from football due to chronic injuries.[5]
