SPLIT, Croatia (AP) — Former Croatia soccer coach Tomislav Ivic has died at 77.

His death Friday was announced by the Croatian Football Federation. Croatian media say Ivic suffered from diabetes and heart problems.

Ivic coached the national teams of the former Yugoslavia, Croatia, Iran and United Arab Emirates, along with 20 clubs from 14 countries, in a coaching career spanning 1967-2004.

He won league titles with Hajduk Split, Ajax, Anderlecht, Porto, Panathinaikos and Olympique Marseille.

In 2007, Italian sports daily La Gazzetta dello Sport lauded Ivic as the most successful soccer coach in history, having won eight national titles in six countries.
