Andrija Kaluđerović (Serbian Cyrillic: Андрија Калуђеровић; born 5 July 1987) is a Serbian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Indian club Delhi Dynamos.

Club career[edit]

On 13 December 2003, aged 16, Kaluđerović made his senior debut for OFK Beograd under manager Stevica Kuzmanovski, coming on as an injury-time substitute for Hristijan Kirovski in a 1–1 away league draw against Budućnost Banatski Dvor. He spent the majority of the following three seasons on loan to various clubs, most notably Spartak Subotica in the Serbian First League. In the 2009 winter transfer window, Kaluđerović moved from OFK Beograd to fellow Serbian SuperLiga club Rad.

Red Star Belgrade[edit]

In August 2010, Kaluđerović signed a three-year contract with Red Star Belgrade. He was the league's joint top scorer in the 2010–11 season, alongside Ivica Iliev, with 13 goals. In February 2012, Kaluđerović was transferred to Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan for an undisclosed fee.

Brisbane Roar[edit]

On 29 January 2015, Brisbane Roar announced that they had acquired the services of the Serbian for the remainder of the 2014–15 A-League, with an option to an extension at the end of the season. Upon his arrival to the club, Kaluđerović said that it had been a desire of his to play in Australia for the Roar since facing them in the 2012 AFC Champions League, then with Beijing Guoan.[1] He scored his first goal on his debut for the side in a 2–0 win over Central Coast Mariners. On 30 May 2015, Kaluđerović was released by new manager John Aloisi as his contract expired.

Wellington Phoenix[edit]

On 15 August 2017, it was announced that Kaluđerović would be returning to the A-League to play for the Wellington Phoenix on a one-year deal.[2]

Olimpija Ljubljana[edit]

Kaluđerović joined Slovenian club Olimpija Ljubljana soon after his release from the Phoenix.[3]

Delhi Dynamos[edit]

On 17 August 2018, Kaluđerović switched to Indian club Delhi Dynamos.[4]

International career[edit]

Kaluđerović was capped for Serbia and Montenegro at under-19 level and Serbia at under-21 level in UEFA competitions. He was subsequently selected to represent Serbia at the 2008 Summer Olympics, but failed to make any appearance.

In April 2010, Kaluđerović made his full international debut for Serbia in a friendly match against Japan. He received his second call-up to the team for two friendlies against Mexico and Honduras in November 2011, appearing in both games.

Personal life[edit]

In January 2010, Kaluđerović married TV host Milica Stanišić.[5]
