Dejan "Danny" Milosevic (born 26 June 1978 in Melbourne, Australia) is the Director of Football of National Premier Leagues Victoria club Ballarat Red Devils. A former Australian Under-23 international at the 2000 Olympic Games and under 17,20 youth international, Milosevic came to the Knights after five years at Leeds United in England where he was understudy to goalkeepers of such pedigree as Nigel Martyn and Paul Robinson.
Milosevic started off his professional career with the Canberra Cosmos in the old NSL and captained the Under 20 Australian side to the World Youth Cup in 1997 as well as playing in Germany before joining Perth Glory where he was a high-profile signing under popular new coach Bernd Stange in 1998. Whilst having a strong start to his time in Perth and gaining cult hero status, an incident against the Gippsland Falcons.
Milosevic moved to Leeds United F.C. for £110,000 after only one season at the Perth Glory and he hardly ever got a chance with the likes of England number two Nigel Martyn and then England number one Paul Robinson ahead of him. He was eventually released by Leeds United F.C. and was signed up on a pay as you play contract by Celtic. He left the club without playing after citing personal problems.
Milosevic never returned to Glasgow, and was without a club until he joined the New Zealand Knights for the inaugural A-League season on the advice of former glory teammate Danny Hay. The Knights first season was a disaster, often due to Milosevic's form. "We all make mistakes and Danny would be the first to hold his hand up to some of the errors that he's made this year," Adshead said. He was eventually demoted to the bench with All-Whites keeper Paston ahead of him.
Soon after New Zealand Knights' new manager Paul Nevin signed another goalkeeper, Michael Turnbull, to battle for Milosevic's for the A-league's second season. "That's how the game normally works. You wait for your chance through injury or form and take it. You put your head down in training, show the coach what you can do, and fight for the No 1 spot". Paul Nevin.
Before the close of the A-League's second season Milosevic was released by the club seen surplus to its requirements.
Milosevic is now owner of One 2 One football, a football coaching,promotion,consultation and worldwide football marketing company. A new brand of Goalkeeping gloves designed by Milosevic called XSENTR1Q was launched recently onto the worldwide market.
Milosevic accepted the position of Director of Football at newly promoted NPLV club Ballarat Red Devils in December 2013 ahead of the inaugural 2014 NPLV season. He was motivated to work with the club's youth academy.
