Miljan Mrdaković (Serbian Cyrillic: Миљан Мрдаковић; born 6 May 1982) is a Serbian professional footballer who plays for Tampines Rovers FC in Singapore, as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Mrdaković was born in Niš, Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. He started playing football for FK Radnički Niš and FK Partizan at youth level, and at the age of 16, he moved to Belgium with R.S.C. Anderlecht where he finished his junior formation, but never appeared in the league for the Brussels club.

From 2002 onwards journeyman Mrdaković never settled with a team, going on to play in seven countries other than his own, representing V.C. Eendracht Aalst 2002 (loaned by Anderlecht), OFK Beograd (two spells), K.A.A. Gent, SV Austria Salzburg, FC Metalist Kharkiv, Maccabi Tel Aviv FC, Vitória SC, Shandong Luneng Taishan FC, Apollon Limassol, Ethnikos Achna FC (loaned by Apollon) and AEK Larnaca FC.

In March 2012, Mrdaković returned to China again and signed a contract with Super League side Jiangsu Sainty FC. He was released shortly after, having failed to make an impact.

Mrdaković joined Veria F.C. in the Superleague Greece in the 2013 summer. In December of that year, however, displeased with the lack of playing opportunities, he left the side.[1]

International career[edit]

Mrdaković made appearances for Serbia's under-13, under-16, under-18 and under-21 national teams.

In 2008, after a solid season in Guimarães, helping his club finish third straight out of the second division, he was selected as one of the overage players for the 2008 Summer Olympics, as the nation exited in the group stages.[2]
