Todor "Toza" Veselinović (Serbian Cyrillic: Тодор Веселиновић ; born 22 October 1930 in Novi Sad) is a former Serbian football player and coach. He is one of the most renowned goal scorers in Yugoslavian national team history.

At international level, he won 37 caps and scored 28 goals. He played in the 1954 FIFA World Cup and 1958 FIFA World Cup, scoring three goals in the latter tournament.

He later began a coaching career and managed several clubs, including Independiente Santa Fe in Colombia and Fenerbahçe S.K. in Turkey. He won eight cups and two Turkish league titles (1985 and 1989) with Fenerbahçe.

He also managed Yugoslavia at the finals of Euro 84 in France, where they lost all three of their games.
