Danijel Subotić (born 31 January 1989) is a Swiss footballer who plays for Gabala FK in Azerbaijan as a forward. He was born in Zagreb but his family originated from Doboj, Bosnia and Herzegovina, then part of Yugoslavia.[2]

Career[edit]

Beginning[edit]

Subotić began his career at FC Basel in his adoptive country Switzerland.

Portsmouth[edit]

On 7 January 2008 he became English Premier League side Portsmouth F.C.'s first signing in the 2008 January transfer window.[3] He signed a reported 3½ year contract.

On 5 August 2008, Subotić moved on loan to Belgian club Zulte Waregem, the Portsmouth's feeder club at that time (which relationship ended in June 2009)[4] along with Andréa Mbuyi-Mutombo in order to gain first-team experience. He scored 1 goal in 13 league appearances before returned to England in January 2009.[5]

On 7 August 2010, Italian Serie B side Grosseto announced Subotić was trying out at the club.[6] Nearly 2 weeks later, Pompey formally announced Subotić's contract was canceled by mutual consent.[7]

Universitatea Craiova[edit]

In February 2011, Danijel Subotić signed a contract with the Romanian club FC Universitatea Craiova of Liga 1.[8] On 20 March 2011, he scored his first goal for FC Universitatea Craiova during the match against FC Astra Ploieşti.

In July 2011, Subotić went on trial with Scottish Premier League side St Johnstone, where he played in one friendly match in an attempt to win a contract.

Gabala[edit]

On 1 July 2013, Subotić signed a one-year contract with Azerbaijan Premier League side Gabala.[9] However Subotić could not feature in any of Gabala's opening five matches as there was a dispute over the players registration between Volyn Lutsk and Gabala, which was finally sorted out during the September International break.[10] Subotić made his debut and scored his first goal for Gabala on 15 September 2013 in a 2–1 away victory over AZAL. [11] On 19 February 2014, Subotić scored his tenth goal for Gabala in only his sixteenth game.[12]

Qadsia SC[edit]

Rejecting a new contract with Gabala, Subotić signed instead for Kuwaiti team Qadsia in July 2014.[13] He won 3 titles and scored 31 goals in 28 matches but left the club at the end of the season.

Sheriff Tiraspol[edit]

On 23 July 2015, Subotić signed for Moldovan side Sheriff Tiraspol,[14] leaving the club by mutual consent on 28 January 2017.[15]

Gabala Return[edit]

On 31 January 2017, Gabala announced the signing of Subotić on a six-month contract.[16]

International career[edit]

Subotić has dual citizenship, Swiss as well as Bosnian.[2] However his Croatian background also helped him eligible to play for both three.

Subotić represented Swiss U19 team at 2008 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship qualification.[17]
