Soccer Coach Dragan Stojkovic Scores Amazing Goal
Total Pro Sports – If I ever become a professional athlete in the future, I want this guy to coach my team. Unfortunately, professional “sitting-on-your-ass” isn’t recognized as an official sport – yet. So until then, I’ll just have to live vicariously through these guys.
Meet Dragan Stojkovic. Not only does he have a name that’s fit for a villain in a Steven Segal movie, but he’s also the current manager of the Japanese soccer team, Nagoya Grampus. On top of that, he’s the former captain of the Yugoslavian national soccer team, Red Star Belgrade, where he is widely considered to be one of the best soccer players in Yugoslavian history. And after watching this video, I doubt anyone will disagree.
While the rest of the soccer world does nothing to help the sport shed its sissified image – Dragan took the opportunity to show everyone why he’s a natural born bad-ass. What’s even scarier is the lack of reaction from the players on the field. It’s almost as if Dragan does this sort of thing all the time, and they’re now annoyed by his complete and total bad-ass-ery. “There goes coach again, showing off for the ladies.”
