David Kipiani (Georgian: დავით ყიფიანი; November 18, 1951 in Tbilisi, Georgian SSR - September 17, 2001 in Tbilisi, Georgia) was a famous Georgian football midfielder and manager. He played for FC Dinamo Tbilisi and Soviet Union National Team and also for a year for Lokomotiv Tbilsi.

After retirement, he coached FC Dinamo Tbilisi, FC Torpedo Kutaisi, Shinnik Yaroslavl (Russia), Mechelen (Belgium), Olympiakos Nicosia (Cyprus) and Georgian National Team. He died from injuries sustained in a car crash on September 17, 2001. He was 50 years old.

Today, some people consider him as the "Zidane of the East", and some others doesn't hesitate to compare him with Pelé or Maradona.

Many think, David Kipiani was the best Georgian midfielder and one of the best Georgian coaches. Among his titles as a player are Soviet League championship (1978), Soviet Cup (1976 and 1979) and UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (1981) all with FC Dinamo Tbilisi. David Kipiani was named Soviet Footballer of the Year in 1977. As a coach, he led FC Dinamo Tbilisi to 6 Georgian titles and FC Torpedo Kutaisi to 2.

In spite of the fact that he was one of the best Soviet players, he was not given to him a chance to play World Cup finals. Many think his peak was in 1982, but Soviet National Team bosses refused to take him to Spain. Reasons are still unclear.

The Georgian Cup and the stadium in the town of Gurjaani were named after him.

Thanks for the work :)

He was a physically strong player, so BB should be 84. In a note that I read his height was 1.87 m.

Il Codino, Ok for the update about BB it was a true interrogation for me.

But for the height, I have 2 sources (4th and 5th links) agreeing on 184 cm.

Your help is welcome as always
