Miloš Ninković (Serbian Cyrillic: Милош Нинковић; born 25 December 1984) is a Serbian footballer who plays for Serbian SuperLiga club Red Star Belgrade. He was one of the key players for the Serbian national football team during their stint at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Club career[edit]

Čukarički[edit]

Miloš Ninković’s trajectory was atypical for a Serbian footballer; he is one of the few successful players from Serbia to have never gone through the more notable youth academies of Red Star, Partizan, Vojvodina, or OFK Beograd. At a very young age, Ninković joined FK Čukarički's youth academy and later graduated into the club's first-team. Boasting fine passing and the ability to read the game, his performances attracted several clubs in Serbia as well as in the region. As opposed to choosing one of his homeland's larger clubs, he chose to leave Čukarički as a teenager to accept Dynamo Kyiv's invitation .

Dynamo Kyiv[edit]

At the age of 19, he initially struggled for playing time in Dynamo. He gradually became a mainstay of the side, helping them win the Ukrainian Premier League three times and the domestic cup twice. The performances were noticed by Serbia's (now former) national team coach Radomir Antić, and he has since become a regular for the Serbian national team. In the 2010–11 season, Miloš Ninković was considered as one of Dynamo's most crucial and talented players. Some team mates described Ninkovic having an "eye for goal" and being a very optimistic footballer.

Évian[edit]

In December 2012 it was announced that the last six months of Ninković's contract, which expires June 2013, was to be spent on loan with French club Évian.[1] Ninković initially was negotiating a transfer to Red Star Belgrade, but was denied the possibility to shorten his contract with Dynamo from June 2013 to January 2013.[2] Over a week after his loan spell to Évian was announced, Ninković told B92 that Red Star remained a fallback option for him, suggesting an eventual transfer to Red Star Belgrade after his contract and loan expire in June 2013.[3]

Red Star Belgrade[edit]

On 4 July 2013, Ninković signed a one-year contract with an option for one additional year with Red Star Belgrade.[4] Ninković's scored his first goals for Red Star on 17 August 2013, when he scored a brace against FK Jagodina.[5]

International career[edit]

Ninković made his maiden appearance for the Serbian national team in 2009 against Sweden. He was a member of Serbia's 2010 FIFA World Cup squad. Having been benched in the match against Ghana, he was in Serbia's starting XI against Germany and Australia.
