Atleti ex-coach Antic dies

Serbian coach Radomir Antic, the only person to manage Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona, died on Monday aged 71 following a long illness. “Today is a sad day for the Atletico Madrid family as we mourn the death of our former coach Radomir Antic who died today aged 71,” said a statement on the club’s official website. Antic had a varied playing career as a defender spanning 17 years. He coached a host of Spanish sides, including Zaragoza, Real and Barcelona, but is best remembered at Atletico, where he spent five years and led a team with current coach Diego Simeone to win a La Liga and Copa del Rey double in 1996. He also led Serbia to qualify for the 2010 World Cup, then going on to work in China. His last stint as coach was with Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune in 2015.
