Biography

A prolific left winger, Bora Kostić is regarded as one of finest Yugoslav players of his generation and was well known for his powerful shot and free kick ability. He played most of his career from 1951-67 with Red Star Belgrade, with short spells to Vicenza Calcio in Italy in 1961-62 and the St. Louis Stars in the US in 1967. With Red Star, Kostić won Yugoslav titles in 1951, 1953, 1956-57, 1959-60, and 1964; Yugoslav Cups in 1958-59 and 1964; and the Mitropa Cup in 1958. With 230 goals, Kostić remains, as of 2017, the top goal scorer in Red Star history and was the top goal scorer at the 1959 and 1960 Yugoslav Championships. He was capped 33 times with the Yugoslav national team from 1956-64 and scored 26 goals, winning gold at the 1960 Olympics, and playing in all five matches of the tournament while scoring six goals. Kostić was also a member of the Yugoslav team that was runner-up at the 1960 European Championships (then called the European Nations’ Cup) and was selected to the all-star team of that tournament.
