Milorad Kosanović (Serbian Cyrillic: Милорад Косановић) (born 4 January 1951 in Banovci[1]) is a Serbian football manager and former footballer.

He played for FK Proleter, FK Vojvodina, OFK Kikinda and FK Novi Sad.[2] He is the former manager of Red Star Belgrade. He is regarded as one of Serbia's strongest football coaches. He became the Red Star manager after the sacking of Boško Đurovski whose last game was a loss to Levadia Tallinn 2-1 in the qualification for the Champions league.[3] Kosanović was sacked after a stunning 0-3 defeat against Aris Thessaloniki F.C. and after a very poor form. Recently, during 2008, he became the coach of Dalian Haichang again.

He also coached Serbia and Montenegro U21.[4]
