Miroslav ?uki? (Serbian Cyrillic: , pronounced [m?rosla? dkit?]; born 19 February 1966) is a Serbian former footballer who played as a sweeper, and a manager.

He spent 14 years of his professional career in Spain, notably at the service of Deportivo de La Coruña and Valencia, amassing La Liga totals of 368 games and 11 goals and winning a combined six major titles for the two teams.

?uki? represented FR Yugoslavia in one World Cup and one European Championship. After retiring, he embarked in a managerial career at both club and international level.

Playing career

Club

Born in ?titar, Serbia, Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, ?uki? began his playing career with FK Ma?va ?abac, moving in 1988 to Belgrade with FK Rad after reported interest from both national giants FK Partizan and Red Star Belgrade.

In the middle of 1990, ?uki? signed for Deportivo de La Coruña in Spain, who purchased him for 40 million pesetas in 1990. He only appeared in five league games for the Galicians in his first season, which ended in La Liga promotion, but, from there onwards, became an undisputed starter, never totalling less than 35 matches and 3,000 minutes of action in five consecutive campaigns, as Super Depor was coming to fruition.

On 14 May 1994, in the league's last round, at home against Valencia CF, ?uki? missed a penalty kick in the game's last minute (eventual 0-0 draw), as habitual taker Donato had already been replaced and second option Bebeto refused the responsibility since he failed to score one the previous match.[1][2] As a result, FC Barcelona were crowned champions instead, and the elegant defender left A Coruña at the end of 1996-97 at the age of 31 as his contract was not renewed.

Subsequently, ?uki? joined Valencia,[3] starting in all of the league games he took part in his first three seasons and helping the Che to two consecutive UEFA Champions League finals, both lost.[4][5] Already as a backup, he made 16 appearances as the club won the first national championship in 31 years in 2002.

?uki? returned to Segunda División after 12 years for the last season of his career, playing for CD Tenerife[6] and retiring at the age of 38, having appeared in exactly 400 matches in the Spanish league (both major levels combined).

International

?uki? made his debut for Yugoslavia on 27 February 1991, in a 1-1 friendly draw against Turkey in ?zmir. He went on to win 48 caps scoring twice, and represented the newly formed FR Yugoslavia at UEFA Euro 2000 (all the games and minutes for the quarter-finalists).[7][8][9][10][11]

?uki? was also a member of the squad that competed at the 1998 FIFA World Cup, but did not play due to injury.

Coaching career

Club

On 23 January 2007, ?uki? was named head coach of Partizan,[12][13] being eventually voted Manager of the Year. On 11 June 2009 he signed for R.E. Mouscron in Belgium, replacing Enzo Scifo and being joined at the Pro League team by former Valencia teammates Amedeo Carboni and Juan Sánchez, who acted as sporting director and technical director, respectively; all left shortly after, as the club folded due to severe economical problems.[14]

In late March 2011, ?uki? became Hércules CF manager after Esteban Vigo was sacked. His first match in charge was a 3-1 away win against Real Sociedad,[15] but the Valencians ultimately suffered top-flight relegation.[16]

On 6 July 2011, ?uki? was appointed at another second division side, agreeing to a three-year contract with Real Valladolid.[17] In early June 2013, after leading them to promotion in his first season - via the playoffs - and the 14th position in the second, he replaced Ernesto Valverde at the helm of former club Valencia.[18]

?uki? was relieved of his duties on 16 December 2013, following the team's eighth loss of the season, 0-3 at Atlético Madrid which left it in ninth place.[19] He was revealed as the new Córdoba CF manager on 20 October 2014, succeeding Albert Ferrer.[20]

In June 2017, ?uki? returned to Partizan after replacing Videoton FC-bound Marko Nikoli?.[21] During his second spell at the Partizan Stadium he made several controversial statements, starting in March 2018 when he used profanities at a press conference, saying that he "was born in fucking ?titar and not sunny Valencia" and that he was "a bum like all of you here."[22] In May, he said "if Marko Jankovi? manages to overcome the Montenegrin in him, he will be a great player";[23] in July, he referred to the team of FK Trakai as not being "some Indians with feathers."[24]

?uki? came back to the Spanish second tier on 22 December 2019, taking the helm of Sporting de Gijón.[25] Following a 13th-place finish, he was replaced by David Gallego the following July.[26]

International

?uki? earned his coaching license in Spain, and started his new career with Serbia's under-21 team, which he led to the final of the 2007 UEFA European Championship, lost against hosts Netherlands.[27] This arrived after a dramatic play-off qualification (0-3 home loss against Sweden, followed by a 5-0 away win).[28]

On 19 December 2007, ?uki? decided not to extend his expired contract with Partizan and was appointed coach of Serbia, leaving the position on 19 August of the following year without having played any official games, due to various problems with the Football Association.[29]
