Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Zorić made his professional debut with Sutjeska Nikšić in 2010 at the age of 17. After just playing seven games with Sutjeska, he transferred to city rivals Čelik Nikšić, with whom Zorić would reach two Montenegrin Cup finals. Throughout the winter of 2013-2014, negotiations took place between Zorić and Inter Milan[1] and Red Star Belgrade.[2]

AEK Athens[edit]

On 11 February 2014, it was announced that Zorić signed a contract with AEK Athens F.C., but would play the rest of the 2013-14 season with Čelik before moving to AEK in July 2014.[3] It was reported that Dušan Bajević tipped off the Greek club into recruiting Zorić.[3]

International career[edit]

Zorić debuted at the age of 20 for the Montenegro national football team on May 23, 2014, in a 2-0 loss against Slovakia under coach Branko Brnović.[4]
