Miljan Miljanic, the former coach of Yugoslavia, Red Star Belgrade and Spain's Real Madrid and Valencia, has died in Serbia at the age of 81.

After a brief career as a defender with Red Star, Miljanic coached the team and won ten national championships.

However, his greatest success was with Real Madrid, where he coached from 1974 to 1977. In the 1974/75 season, he became the first foreigner to win both the national championship and the cup in one season.

He also briefly coached Valencia for a season from 1982. Miljanic was also the head coach of the former Yugoslavia national team, leading them to the 1974 and 1982 FIFA World Cups™.
