Sergije Krešić (born 29 November 1946, in Split, SR Croatia, SFR Yugoslavia) is a Croatian football manager and former player. In Spain he is known by the name Sergio Kresic.

Playing career

He joined Hajduk Split youth team in 1960, becoming a senior in 1965.[1] That same year he played with a neighbouring club RNK Split and a year later returned to Hajduk and became the youth squad coach.

Afterwards he returned to Europe to play with Belgian club KSK Beveren. In 1970 he moved back to Yugoslavia and plays first until 1972 with Yugoslav First League club FK Bor, and afterwords between 1972 and 1975 with OFK Beograd. In 1975 he signed with Spanish La Liga side Burgos CF and stayed until 1978. His good attitude and quality exhibitions resulted in him becoming team captain in his last season there, an achievement hard to accomplish in those days for a foreigner. His last season as player was spent back in the States with Houston in 1978.[2]
