Danny Milosevic (Serbian: Дени Милошевић, Deni Milošević, born 26 June 1978 in Melbourne, Australia) is the Director of Football of National Premier Leagues Victoria club Ballarat Red Devils. A former Australian Under-23 international at the 2000 Olympic Games and under 17,20 youth international, Danny came to the Knights after five years at Leeds United in England where he was understudy to goalkeepers of such pedigree as Nigel Martyn and Paul Robinson.

Biography[edit]

Danny started off his professional career with the Canberra Cosmos in the old NSL and captained the Under 20 Australian side to the World Youth Cup in 1997 as well as playing in Germany before joining Perth Glory where he was a high profile signing under popular new coach Bernd Stange in 1998. Whilst having a strong start to his time in Perth and gaining cult hero status, an incident against the Gippsland Falcons.

Danny moved to Leeds United F.C. for £110,000 after only one season at the Perth Glory and he hardly ever got a chance with the likes of England number two Nigel Martyn and now England number one Paul Robinson ahead of him. He was eventually released by Leeds United F.C. and was signed up on a pay as you play contract by Celtic. He left the club without playing after citing personal problems.[1]

Danny never returned to Glasgow, and was without a club until he joined the New Zealand Knights for the inaugural A-League season on the advice of former glory team mate Danny Hay. The Knights first season was a disaster, despite Milosevic's often valiant efforts in keeping scorelines below 10–0 and more like 3–0. However the poor morale and politics at the club and increasing strain on them to promote people who were not dedicated to the club and its plight saw Milosevic demoted to the bench with All-Whites keeper Paston ahead of him. Before the close of the A-League's second season Milosevic was forced out of the club by internal politics of the boardroom and coaching staff.

Danny is now owner of One 2 One football, a football coaching,promotion,consultation and worldwide football marketing company. A new brand of Goalkeeping gloves designed by Danny called XSENTR1Q was launched recently onto the worldwide market.

Milosevic accepted the position of Director of Football at newly promoted NPLV club Ballarat Red Devils in December 2013 ahead of the innagural 2014 NPLV season. He was motivated to work with the club's youth academy.[2]
