Vladimir Jugovi? (Serbian Cyrillic: ?, pronounced [?l?dimi:r jû?o?it?]; born 30 August 1969) is a Serbian former professional footballer. A versatile player, he was usually employed as a left or attacking midfielder, but could play anywhere in midfield. He represented Yugoslavia at the 1998 FIFA World Cup and at UEFA Euro 2000, collecting 41 international appearances between 1991 and 2002, and scoring three goals.

Born in Milutovac, a village near Trstenik, Jugovi? played throughout his career for numerous top European teams. He won the European Cup and Intercontinental Cup with Red Star in 1991 and won both competitions again with Juventus in 1996. He is regarded as one of the finest players that Serbia has ever produced and one of the best midfielders of his generation.

Club career

Red Star Belgrade

Jugovi? was scouted by Red Star at the age of 15 by former Red Star player Toma Mili?evi?.[1] After making his debut for Red Star, he was loaned to FK Rad in the second half of the 1989-90 season. When Ljupko Petrovi? became coach of Red Star, Jugovi? was brought back to the starting eleven. In 1991, Jugovi? played in the 1991 European Cup Final, which Red Star won. Subsequently, he won the Intercontinental Cup as Red Star beat Colo-Colo 3-0, scoring the first two goals.[1][2] By the end of his career with Red Star, he was awarded the Star of Red Star and became one of the most celebrated footballers in Yugoslavia.

Sampdoria

Sampdoria invited Jugovi? at the insistence of Vujadin Bo?kov, who was their coach until 1992.[2] He spent three successful seasons at Sampdoria,[3] during which he helped the team win the 1993-94 Coppa Italia. Notably, he scored a brace in the 1995 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup semi-final first leg against Arsenal, but missed a penalty after overtime in the subsequent leg, after which Arsenal progressed.[4]

Juventus

In 1995 Jugovi? was purchased from Sampdoria by Juventus, whose coach at the time was Marcello Lippi. In his first season, Juventus finished as runners-up in Serie A. In the 1996 UEFA Champions League Final, he came on as a substitute for Antonio Conte and scored the decisive penalty for Juventus against Ajax, following a 1-1 draw after extra-time. In a 2017 interview with Goal.com, he recalled that he felt calm before taking his penalty against Ajax keeper Edwin van der Sar.[5] After his role in their Champions League victory, Jugovi? played for Juventus for one more season, during which he featured in the 1996 Intercontinental Cup, which Juventus won 1-0 over Riverplate.[2] That season, Juventus went on to win the 1996-97 Serie A title,[2] after which Jugovi? left for Lazio.[6] In total, he made 77 appearances for the Turin-based club, scoring 10 goals.[2]

Later career

In the summer of 1997, he joined Lazio spending only one season with the Roman club winning his second Coppa Italia (1997-98 Coppa Italia), beating Milan in the two-leg final, also the club reached the 1998 UEFA Cup Final, losing to Inter in the all Italian final.[6]

Jugovi? successively moved to Atlético Madrid for the 1998-99 season before joining Inter the following year, where he spent two seasons.[3] Jugovi? finished his career at LR Ahlen, after stints with AS Monaco FC and VfB Admira Wacker Mödling.[4]

International career

Jugovi? made his debut for Yugoslavia's national team against Czechoslovakia in August 1991, while it still consisted of players from the collapsing SFR Yugoslavia.[7] He was included to UEFA Euro 1992,[8] but the nation would be suspended due to the Yugoslav Wars.

For the national team, Jugovi? played primarily as a left winger until the Euro 2000, where coach Vujadin Bo?kov deployed him as a central midfielder. He did not miss a single match for Yugoslavia at the 1998 FIFA World Cup.[7] During the final 16 match against the Netherlands, Jugovi? was fouled by Jaap Stam, resulting in a penalty kick which Predrag Mijatovi? missed.[9]

Although Jugovi? missed Yugoslavia's Euro 2000 qualifying campaign due to injury, he was called up by coach Vujadin Bo?kov for the tournament.[7] He played as a central midfielder in the quarterfinal against the Netherlands, which Yugoslavia lost to by a score of 6-1.

Style of play

A versatile, physically strong, and hard-working right-footed player, Jugovi? was usually employed as a left-sided or attacking midfielder, but could play anywhere in midfield, including in the centre, in a holding role, and on the right. Regarded as one of the Serbia's greatest players, and as one of the best midfielders of his generation, he was mainly known for his tenacity, energy, generosity, intelligence, and tackling, but was also a talented player, with good technique, who could also start attacks and dictate play in midfield with his passing after winning back possession; he also possessed a good shot from any area of the pitch, and was known for his eye for goal.[1][2][4][6][7][10][11][12][13] He was also used as a second striker on occasion,[14] and even as a full-back.[15] Despite his ability, however, he often struggled with injuries throughout his career.[16] Beyond his footballing skills, he was also known for his leadership qualities.[3]
