Admir Ćatović (Bosnian pronunciation: [tɕaːtoʋitɕ]; born 5 September 1987 in Gacko, Bosnia and Herzegovina) is a Bosnian-Swedish footballer who last played for Assyriska FF.

Career[edit]

Starting his career in the Vasalunds IF youth system, before moving to Råsunda IS and eventually picked up by AIK.

AIK was relegated to Superettan in 2004, this saw Ćatović take a place in the senior team prior to the 2005 season, however his appearance on the field was limited to 2 league matches and 2 cup matches,[2] he scored once against Västra Frölunda IF when he gave AIK the lead after nine minutes in a 3-0 victory.[3]

As AIK was promoted back to Allsvenskan, however Ćatović did not follow and he was released to AIK's Farm team Väsby United. However the club was relegated immediately to Division 1, where he helpt the club back by scoring 10 goals.[4] During the 2008 Superettan he helpt Väsby to a 9th position by scoring 6 goals. He was loaned out to Syrianska FC prior to the 2009 season,[5] however with limited appearances for the club. In 2010 AIK suffered greatly from poor performance and brought Ćatović back to club,[6] he however ended up in the shadows off first Mohamed Bangura and then Teteh Bangura.[7]

Eventually fed up with not being first choice he broke his contract with AIK and signed for Assyriska FF.[8][9]
