Club career[edit]

A right-footed midfielder, Kurtić joined 1. SNL club Gorica in July 2010 from 2. SNL club Bela Krajina.[citation needed]

On 12 January 2011, Kurtić made his debut in a Palermo jersey, playing 63 minutes in the Coppa Italia round of 16 game against Chievo; the match ended in a 1–0 win for the Sicilians.[5][6][7] On 13 February 2011, Kurtić made his debut in Serie A, playing the whole 90 minutes against Fiorentina; the match ended in a 2–4 win for the Tuscans. On 10 April 2011, Kurtić scored his first goal in Serie A with Palermo against Cesena.

On 1 August 2011 he moved on loan to Varese in Serie B, with an option for his new club to acquire 50% of his transfer rights by the end of the season.[8] He debuted in Serie B with the biancorossi on 27 August against Bari. For the season 2012/13 returns to Palermo in Serie A.
