Nebojša Petrović (Serbian Cyrillic: Небојша Петровић; born 14 June 1960) is a Serbian football manager and former player.

His nickname is Maradona, due to his resemblance to the famous Argentine footballer.[1]

Club career

After coming through the youth system of Red Star Belgrade, Petrović made his Yugoslav First League debut with Rijeka in 1979. He played just 24 league games in his three seasons at Kantrida, eventually moving to Yugoslav Second League side Rad in 1982. Between 1985 and 1988, Petrović spent three seasons with OFK Beograd. He subsequently joined Proleter Zrenjanin, helping them win promotion to the top flight in 1990.[2]

Managerial career

After hanging up his boots, Petrović served as manager of numerous clubs in his homeland and abroad, including Rad (three spells),[3][4] Sileks (two spells),[5] Pobeda,[6] and FC Yerevan.
