Radomir Antic is a name that is familiar to many football fans. He is a Serbian former player and coach who made history by being the only coach to manage three of Spain's biggest clubs: Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid. He spent the majority of his 27-year managerial career in Spain, where he achieved great success.
Antic started his football journey as a player, spending 17 years on the field as a defender and playing for several professional Serbian teams. He then made the transition to coaching, where he made his mark as one of the most prominent La Liga leaders of the 1990s. He led Atletico Madrid to one of their most successful seasons ever, including a league and cup double in 1995–96, on three separate occasions.
In addition to his success at Atletico Madrid, Antic also coached Real Madrid for a year from March 1991 until March 1992. He then moved to Barcelona in January 2003 and helped stabilize the team, which was in crisis at the time. However, he left after just one season due to the arrival of a new president, Joan Laporta, who ushered in a new era at Camp Nou.
Radomir Antic's impressive playing career and an honorable managerial career spanning over two decades earned him the respect of the fans of Barcelona, Madrid, and Atletico, as well as the wider football community. Although he was unable to achieve success at Real Madrid or Barcelona, his contributions to the sport and his impact on the teams he managed will forever be remembered.
