Darko Lukanović (born 1 June 1984) is a Swedish professional footballer who plays as a forward.

Football career[edit]

Born in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Lukanović immigrated to Sweden in his teens, playing youth football with both Falkenbergs FF and Malmö FF. With the latter, with which he remained four-and-a-half years, he won the junior championship and the 2004 Allsvenskan title.

Remaining in the country, Lukanović signed in January 2005 with Assyriska Föreningen, which were playing in the top flight for the first time ever.[1] In August, he moved to Belgium with Royal Antwerp FC, where he played 84 games – including both friendly and competitive matches – during his four-year spell with the second division team.[2] In the 2007–08 season, he spent time on loan at fellow league side K.V.K. Tienen.[3]

In the 2009 autumn, Lukanović joined CF Atlético Ciudad in Spain.[4] During his only season with the Murcians, he ranked second in goals scored to help them finish in seventh position in Segunda División B, but the club folded shortly after.

In October 2011, after a brief spell back in his country, Lukanović agreed to a one-year contract with Romanian club CSU Voința Sibiu.[5] He continued competing in the country in the following years, in both its Liga I and Liga II.
