In July 2009, Popović accepted an offer to coach the J-league club Oita Trinita, which had experienced 14 consecutive defeats in the season. In his first six matches, the team only won once, but in the last ten matches of the season, it did not lose once (5 wins and 5 draws). This result earned him and offer to coach the team for the next season, but the team nearly went bankrupt, and his contract had to be canceled.
Popović was appointed manager of Machida Zelvia on 15 December 2010. On 24 November 2014, after stints at FC Tokyo and Cerezo Osaka, he was appointed at the helm of Real Zaragoza, replacing fired Víctor Muñoz.
