Darko Lukanović (born 1 June 1984) is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for FC Rapid București as a forward.

Football career[edit]

Born in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Lukanović immigrated to Sweden in his teens, playing youth football with both Falkenbergs FF and Malmö FF. With the latter, with which he remained four-and-a-half years, he won the junior championship and the 2004 Allsvenskan title.

Remaining in the country, Lukanović signed in January 2005 with Assyriska Föreningen, which were playing in the top flight for the first time ever.[1] In August he moved to Belgium with Royal Antwerp FC, where he played 84 games – including both friendly and competitive matches – during his four-year spell with the second division team.[2] In the 2007–08 season, he spent time on loan at fellow second level club K.V.K. Tienen.[3]

In the 2009 autumn, Lukanović joined CF Atlético Ciudad in Spain.[4] During his only season with the Murcia club, he ranked second in goals scored to help it finish in seventh position in Segunda División B, only to fold shortly after.

In October 2011, after a brief spell back in his country, Lukanović agreed to a one-year contract with Romanian side CSU Voința Sibiu.[5] He continued competing in the country in the following years, in both its Liga I and Liga II.
