    By all accounts, Ivic heads and shoulders above all.

    I was just about to say that.
    I went to Sharif University. I'm a superior genetic mutation, an improvement on the existing mediocre stock.

    Ivic number one, he would’ve done wonders in the World Cup 98; I loved the way Blazevic had the guys playing awesome, got unlucky but he was a great one too.

    Ivic and Stanko were the best. Ivic was a tactician and Stanko a disciplined coach.

    IVIC was a legendary coach!
    He managed teams in 14 different countries. He won titles and cups in seven countries: Yugoslavia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, Spain and France.
    He managed 4 national teams.
    Looking at his wiki page and the list of clubs and winning ratio in Champions League is mesmerizing.
    I dont know about todays stats, but I know in the past Giovanni Trapattoni and Tomislav Ivic were both regarded as most successful club coach in history of the game.

    It's obvious that Croats have favourable and positive views of Iran, in contrast to most countries in the world.

    And despite their small population they have massive talent in football (and talent in sports in general).

    For me, Blazevic!

    Too bad Ivic was not TM head coach for so long!

    Vinco Begovic just won the Azadegan League (Iran's second division) with Gol Gohar-eh Seerjaan (Kerman Province) and will be leading his team in the Persian Gulf League next season. He is a committed coach with relative success that should be acknowledged for his commitment to a team and his accomplishments in a small town like Seerjaan. I hope he will be successful next year. He just got a two year extension with Gol Gohar [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] .

    Most of these coaches have had a significant contribute to our club and national football. I agree with you guys that Ivic was the best we had and i only wish he was given more time to implement his ideas, by all accounts (from the players themselves) he changed how we played and the result was manifest in our 98 world cup (where I remember the british newspapers were predicting 4-0 win by yugoslavia and 3-0 by USA!)
