Yanko Daucik Ciboch (born Prague, Czechoslovakia, March 22, 1941) was a professional footballer during the 1960s and 1970s. Yanko played for Real Betis, Real Madrid, the Toronto Falcons and RCD Español. Daucik is the son of Ferdinand Daučík, the veteran La Liga manager who moved his family to Spain in 1950.

Daucik made his La Liga debut for Real Betis on September 11, 1960 in a game against RCD Mallorca. His father was the Betis manager at the time. Yanko scored 14 goals in 38 La Liga appearances for Betis, attracting the interest of Real Madrid who signed him in 1962. However he faced stiff competition from the likes of Alfredo Di Stéfano, Francisco Gento, Ferenc Puskás and Amancio Amaro and during two seasons at Real he only played 10 La Liga games and scored just 3 goals. He subsequently became one of the first Spanish footballers to play in North America when he played for Toronto Falcons of the

National Professional Soccer League
. This proved to something of a family reunion as Yanko was joined at the club by his father Ferdinand, brother-in-law Ladislao Kubala and nephew Branko Kubala. During the 1967 season Yanko played 25 games, scored 20 goals and made 8 assists for the Falcons and finished as top scorer in the league.
