Blagoje "Moša" Marjanović (Serbian Cyrillic: Благоје Марјановић Моша; September 9, 1907 – October 1, 1984) was a Serbian football forward who played for Yugoslavia at FIFA World Cup 1930. He scored one goal in that tournament in the game versus Bolivia [1]. During the tournament his club was BSK.

After returning from 1930 World Cup, along Aleksandar Tirnanić, he became the first football player in Yugoslavia to receive a salary. For his services at BSK Marjanović was paid YUS1,800 per month. The exchange rate of dinar against US dollar in December 1930 was $1 = YUS56.39 meaning that his monthly salary was $32 (about $446 in 2014 dollar).[1]
