Dr Jo was a distinguished gentleman and a good football manager, who signed some players that turned the football scene in Glasgow upside-down. Be it Lolo or Dr Jo, the name that will be imprinted in football history not only of Slovakia is Jozef Vengloš, the best Slovak coach of the 20th century. In this special feature, we talk about the domestic as well as the international legacy of Jozef Vengloš, who passed on 27 January 2021, at the age of 84.
