Falling out of the limelight after his retirement in 1996, his name began been appearing in Serbian language newspapers once again in November 2011. It was announced that Đurđić was living in poverty and was close to being bound to a wheelchair due to not being able to afford a knee operation in Novi Sad. German-based newspaper Vesti wrote about him and offered ways to help him collect the necessary 5,000€ for the operation.
