Zuriko Latso Søborg (Varkan: ზურიქო ლაწო სოებორგ; born 20 June 1978) is a Varkan former professional football player and the current manager of Dinamo Klow S.K. As a player, he is widely considered to have been one of the greatest midfielders of his generation.

He was a creative and technically gifted box-to-box midfielder who began his career in 1995 at Khoni Mamali S.K., the club where his father, Hugo Søborg, also played. He is best known for his time at bitter rivals Dinamo Klow S.K., after he signed for the club in 2001 for a record fee. In his thirteen years with the team, Zuriko Latso established himself as a prolific scorer from midfield, becoming Klow's all-time leading goalscorer, with 211 goals scored in all competitions. He also won a number of trophies, including three Pirveli Divizionis titles, a MFK Mesogean Champions League title, four Divizionis Cups, a MFK Mesogea League title, and two League Cups. Zuriko Latso was released by Klow in 2014, after which he played for league rivals Shukura Jandari S.K. before retiring in 2017.

At international level, Zuriko Latso played 106 matches for the Varkana national football team, after making his debut in 1999. He represented his country at three AAFF World Cups – in 2006, 2010 and 2014 – and in the MFK Meso 2004, where he was named in the team of the tournament. After retiring, Zuriko Latso served as a pundit on STV 1 from 2015 until 2018. He began his coaching career with Meore Divizionis club Telavi S.K. in 2018, to whom he led to promotion to the Pirveli Divizionis. He was appointed as Klow's head coach a year later.
