Boško "Tatek" Ralić (25 November 1904 – 17 October 1978) was a Serbian football player and coach. He was born in Plaški village near Karlovac, Austria-Hungary, and died in Belgrade, SFR Yugoslavia.

Playing career[edit]

Ralić has spent his entire playing career at the right half position. For a decade, from 1927 to 1937, he was a prominent player of Concordia Zagreb, one of the most popular football clubs in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Ralić has won two national championships with Concordia, in 1930 and 1932. He has played six games for the Yugoslavia national football team (1932–1933) and twelve games for the selection of the city of Zagreb (1930–1935).[1] He made his national team debut against Spain, April 24, 1932, and the last game he played for the national team was a 5-0 loss against Romania, June 11, 1933. During the time he played for Yugoslavia, the national team has made two wins and four losses.

Coaching career[edit]

After the World War II, Ralić became the first head coach of FK Metalac, successor of the pre-war five time national champion BSK and predecessor of today's OFK Beograd. He was the head coach of Metalac in 1946 and 1947, when he left the club and moved to Stara Pazova. He got back to Belgrade in 1950, to coach the youth division of Red Star Belgrade. In 1953, he was appointed the new head coach of Red Star, replacing Ljubiša Broćić, but he remained on this position only until December 1954, when he was replaced by Milovan Ćirić. Later, Ralić coached FK Napredak Kruševac from where he moved to FK Bor in summer 1959.[2] In January 1960, he returned to Red Star Belgrade, this time as the coach of the reserve team, citing family reasons for this decision.[3]
