Zivko Gocic won almost all possible international gold medals during his playing career.
He led Serbia as the captain to the titles at the Olympic Games, World and European Championships, etc. In 2018, a year after winning the Champions League and the European Super Cup with Szolnok, he retired to become a head coach in the same club.
As a coach, he clinched the only missing significant trophy in his playing career. He guided Szolnok to the 2021 LEN Euro Cup. In the same season, Gocic became the first non-Hungarian head coach to win the Hungarian championships.
Last year, Gocic took over Novi Beograd and won silver in the Champions League with the Serbian champion.
