Miodrag Yesic Obituary, Death – Miodrag Yesic, a former Serbian coach at Club Sportif Sfaxien, passed away after a long career filled with success and titles, particularly during his tenure with our first football team in the 2000/2001 season. Jei, who was born in Oseenica, was a player for Partizan from 1974 until 1985[2,] during which time he participated in 342 matches for the club and scored 81 goals across all competitions. He began his professional career in 1985 with Altay SK, where he played 136 matches and scored 29 goals. He finished his career with Trabzonspor in 1989–90, where he played 37 matches and scored 9 goals in total during that season.
The fans of Fenerbahce held Jei responsible for an injury sustained by Radvan Dilmen in 1990, which occurred during a league match between their team and Trabzonspor. As a result, Jei was held in extremely low regard by the fans of Fenerbahce. Rdvan never fully recovered despite undergoing sixteen operations; as a result of the excruciating pain he endured as a result of his injuries, he was forced to retire from Fenerbahce in 1995. During his time in the Turkish Süper Lig, Jei had also established a new high mark for the number of bookings he had made. His adversaries asserted that he was responsible for the injuries sustained by a large number of players in Turkey, and as a result, they dubbed him “Kasap Yeşic,” which means “Jei the Butcher.”
He was a member of the Yugoslav national team and took part in eight games, during which he scored twice. As a manager, Jei began his career in 1993 with FK Obili, where he led the team to the final of the Yugoslav Cup. He went on to manage several other Serbian teams, including OFK Beograd and his hometown club, Partizan, which, while he was in charge, set a club record with 111 goals scored in a single season. In UEFA Champions League qualifiers, he also recorded victories over Flora (6–0, 4–1) and Rijeka (3–1, 3–0).
After leading the Tunisian team CS Sfaxien to victory in the Arab Champions League during the 2000–2001 season, he took the helm of the Turkish club Altay in 2002. The following year, he moved to Bulgaria to manage Slavia Sofia and then the Iranian club Pegah Gilan, and then he was promoted to his current position as the manager of CSKA Sofia. During this time, he won the Bulgarian championship, recorded a victory over Liverpool in the qualifying phase of the UEFA Champions League, and eliminated Bayer Leverkusen from the UEFA Cup. In addition, he became a member of the Bulgarian national team.
