Aleksandar Ignjovski (Serbian Cyrillic: Александар Игњовски; born 27 January 1991) is a Serbian football midfielder who plays for Werder Bremen, but as of the Bundesliga season 2014/15 will be heading out for Eintracht Frankfurt. At international level he represents the Serbian national team.

Club career[edit]

Born in Belgrade (SR Serbia, SFR Yugoslavia), Ignjovski played in his first season as senior in 2008 for the Serbian SuperLiga club OFK Beograd, playing twenty three games and scoring three goals during that season.[1] On 8 July 2009, he was loaned to 2. Bundesliga club TSV 1860 München. At the end of the loan, Ignjovski returned to Belgrade before signing for Werder Bremen.[2] On April 3, 2014 it was officially announced that Ignjovski had signed with Eintracht Frankfurt with effect from the season 2014/15.[3]

International career[edit]

Ignjovski was a member of Serbian U-21 team from 2009. Due to his Macedonian background, in March 2010 Macedonia national football team coach Mirsad Jonuz officially stated his desire to have Ignjovski play for Macedonia, but this never came to materialize.[4] Instead, Ignjovski made his debut for the Serbia national football team[5] on 28 February 2012 in Larnaca, Cyprus, in a friendly match against Armenia.[4]
