"Today is a sad day for football because Radomir Antic, a tall person and one of the architects of a golden age at Atletico Madrid, left us," wrote Atletico's President Enrique Cerezo, while Managing Director Miguel Angel Gil added: "Through him I learned to win and live with passion - things that make you better as a person. By losing Radomir, the club has lost a part of its heart. "

The mourning for Antic is not limited to Atletico Madrid - because the "Mister", as he was respectfully called in his home country Serbia because of his gentleman appearance, has also left its mark elsewhere.

Twice champion as a player

Antic started playing football early, made it to a pro and celebrated the Yugoslav championship in 1976 with Partizan Belgrade. Two years later he did the same feat in Turkey with Fenerbahce. His other stations were Real Zaragoza (1978-1980) and Luton Town in England (1980-1984). He only played once for the national team in his country.

Great success as a trainer

But Antic really started as a trainer and made it to great fame - especially in Spain. After training as a coach with Partizan Belgrade, he hired in Zaragoza in 1998 and stayed there for three years before the royal call to guide him to Real Madrid. The Blancos had a bad season, as champions they were only seventh in the table after 26 game days - and therefore also parted from club legend Alfredo di Stefano. Antic led Real to third place and was on a master class the following year. However, there were differences with the then Real President Ramon Mendoza, who had not liked Antique's authoritarian team leadership. Ultimately, the coach was replaced at the end of January 1992 by Leo Beenhakker, despite the championship lead - by the way, Real lost the title on the last matchday and finished second behind Barcelona.

Radomir Antic -- the only man to have coached Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona -- has died aged 71. His death was announced by Atletico Madrid on Monday evening. "With the loss of Radomir , a piece of the heart of the club leaves us," the club's chief executive Miguel Angel Gil said.

Antic remained in the Spanish league and caused a stir at Real Oviedo. In 1995 he finally moved back to Madrid, this time to Atletico - and there it climbed like a meteor. In his first season, he immediately won the double with the Colchoneros - only in 2014 did the Madrid (under Diego Simeone) win the national championship again, the double had not been granted to them since Antiquity's era. But even then, not everything was rosy. The love between Antic and Atletico was not always permanent: he was released twice - Arrigo Sacchi came in 1998, Claudio Ranieri in 1999. Curious: Both Italians could not convince and were each replaced by Antic.

Antic creates history

After the turn of the millennium, the Serb returned to Oviedo, but then had to relegate with the club - and was then without a job for a long time, also because he did not really want to leave his beloved Spain. In January 2003 there was a great opportunity: FC Barcelona, ​​then fifth in the table, called - and Antic was back in business. He ended the season in second place with Barça, but was not allowed to stay. The Catalans preferred Frank Rijkaard. And yet he did something unique: he was the first coach to coach Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and FC Barcelona. His last stop in Spain followed in 2004 - and was not crowned with success: he relegated with Celta Vigo.

Antic takes Serbia back to the big world stage

The family man Antic retired into private life for four years before he took over the Serbian national team in 2008 after many requests. The Serbs had not qualified for a final tournament since 2000 and had an outdated team. Antic did the impossible: he rejuvenated the team and led it to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. There followed the end in the preliminary round, but there was a much-celebrated 1-0 win against clearly favored Germany. Probably because of this success, the disappointment about the defeats against Ghana (0: 1) and Australia (1: 2) prevailed - and ultimately in September after quarrels with the association, the separation.

short appearances in China - return to Madrid

Like so many others he tried his luck in China in the fall of his career (2012/13 with Shandong Luneng Taishan and 2014/15 with Hebei China Fortune), but he was always drawn back to Spain . There he died at the age of 71 after a serious illness. "The Atletico family mourns the loss of one of our legendary coaches: Radomir Antic. He will always be in our hearts. Peace and quiet," wrote the club on its club website. In Serbia it says: "He was known for his expertise, his football knowledge and his authority, but he is loved because of his humanity."

No information has yet been given on his exact cause of death. Antic leaves behind a wife and two children.
