Zoran "Džimi" Marić (Serbian Cyrillic: Зopaн – Џими Mapић; born 21 February 1960) is a Serbian retired footballer who played as a striker, and the current manager of FK Novi Pazar.

Club career[edit]

Born in Boka (Sečanj), Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Marić represented local FK Novi Sad and FK Vojvodina in his country. In January 1988, aged almost 29, he was allowed to leave the Iron Curtain nation and move to Spain, where he would remain until his retirement five years later, with Galician clubs Celta de Vigo[1] and SD Compostela; he competed in La Liga with the former, amassing totals of 71 games and 13 goals.

Marić became a manager in the late 90s, notably working with former sides Vojvodina[2] and Compostela.[3]

International career[edit]

Marić gained two caps for Yugoslavia in 1983. He made his debut on 30 March in a 2–0 friendly win in Romania.

Personal life[edit]

Marić's son, Goran, is also a footballer and a striker. He too spent many years working in Spain, mainly with Celta de Vigo B.[4]
