Career[edit]

In 2009 Igor returned to his first club FK Budućnost Podgorica. After scoring 10 goals there, he moved to Japan to play for Nagoya Grampus.[1]

In August 2012, Burzanović signed for Buriram United for a trial period which ended quckly. In August 2013, he signed again for Buducnost Podgorica.

International career[edit]

As early as 2002, he was part of the FR Yugoslavia U-17 team at the 2002 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship.

Burzanović was a constant member of Serbia and Montenegro national under-21 football team. When the state-union of Serbia and Montenegro was dissolved in May 2006, Burzanović opted to represent his native Montenegro on the international scene, and played in the first match of the Montenegro national football team in 2007, where he scored the game-winning goal from a penalty shot in a 2-1 victory over Hungary.

He was officially acknowledged as Montenegro's best player and received the award in 2004.
