Darko Kolić (Serbian Cyrillic: Дарко Колић; born October 6, 1971) is a former Serbian footballer.

Playing career[edit]

Kolić began his professional career in his hometown of Belgrade (near the Fontana neighborhood where he grew up) in 1992 – first with FK Rad in the First Division and then Hajduk Belgrade in the Second Division.

He signed with the Montreal Impact in 1997 and played with the team until the end of the 2006 season, with stints in Richmond in 1998 and Long Island in 1999.

He tallied 17 goals and nine assists while playing for Long Island in 1999[1] and with that performance, he finished fourth in league scoring and earned a spot on the second all-star team. When he returned to the Impact in 2000, he finished first in team scoring with eight goals and four assists. With the Impact, he won the Montreal Cup, a six-team international tournament played at Complexe sportif Claude-Robillard in 2001,[2] the league championship in 2004, as well as the regular-season title in 1997, 2005 and 2006.

In the 2007 season, he played for the Trois-Rivières (then the Impact farm team) in nineteen games, scoring sixteen goals. His contract was not renewed in December 2007 and he joined Vermont Voltage. For Vermont, Kolić appeared in eighteen games and notched fourteen goals.
