Legendary striker Darko Pancev named Vardar sports director


Football legend Darko Pancev was named sport director of his Vardar team, filling in the position left vacant after Goce Sedloski became head coach.

“Vardar is a well positioned club. We will work hard and we will make sure to achieve good results in Europe in the future. The goals we set are withing Vardar’s grasp, but it will certainly take time”, Pancev said at a press conference on Friday. One of his goals in the club, he said, will be to support the school for young players so that the team can continue to create its own reinforcements.

Pancev started his career in Vardar throughout the 1980ies, leading the team to win the Yugoslav league for the first time ever in 1987. He went on to lead Crvena Zvezda to three league wins and the famous Champions League title in 1991 where he scored the decisive penalty in the finals.

A frequent lead striker in the Yugoslav national team, Pancev also scored a goal in the first game played by the newly independent Macedonian national team, against Slovenia.
