Vujadin Boškov ( , born 16 May 1931) is a retired Serbianmarker football player and coach.

Boškov was born in the village of Begečmarker near Novi Sadmarker, Danube Banovina, Kingdom of Yugoslaviamarker). He played with FK Vojvodinamarker for most of his career (1946-1960). He also became a playing member of the Yugoslavia national team, and was part of the team that won the silver medal at the 1952 Olympic football tournament.

In 1961 he moved to Italymarker to play for Serie A club Sampdoria for one season (1961/62), before accepting a stint as a player/coach at Swiss side Young Boys (1962-1964). Boškov then returned to the club that made him as a player - FK Vojvodinamarker - and coached it for 7 seasons (1964-1971) winning one Yugoslav league championship in 1965-66.

He soon developed a successful international coaching career with stints in Dutch Eredivisie (FC Den Haag (1974-1976), and Feyenoord (1976-1978)), Spanish La Liga (Real Zaragoza (1978/79), Real Madrid (1979-1982), and Sporting de Gijon (1983-84)), Italian Serie A (Ascoli Calcio 1898 (1984-1986), U.C. Sampdoria (1986-1992, 1998-99), A.S. Roma (1992-93), S.S.C. Napoli (1994-1996), and A.C. Perugia (1999)), and Swiss league (Servette Geneva (1996-97)).

Arguably his greatest achievement as a coach came in 1991, when he steered Sampdoria to the Serie A scudetto. The following season, he got them to the European Cup final, where they lost 1-0 to Barcelona at Wembleymarker.

He also coached Yugoslavia at Euro 2000, where they famously lost 4-3 to Spain in Bruggemarker and later went out to Holland in the quarter-finals.
