Darko Maletić (Serbian Cyrillic: Дарко Малетић; born 20 October 1980) is a Bosnian-Herzegovinian retired professional footballer. Maletić holds a peculiar record: he played in UEFA Cup for five different clubs from various countries (Rapid, Publikum, Zenit, Partizan and Aktobe).

Club career[edit]

He started his career with his hometown club FK Borac Banja Luka. In the summer of 2001 he moved to SK Rapid Wien. From January 2002 to the summer of 2004 he played for Publikum Celje of Slovenia. He then moved to Russia where he played for FC Zenit Saint Petersburg (2004) and FC Shinnik Yaroslavl (2005). After six months with Romanian club FC Vaslui (2006), Maletić signed for Serbian giants FK Partizan where he won double crown before he moved to TuS Koblenz in January 2009.


Maletić signed for Aktobe on 10 July 2011.

International career[edit]

When Fuad Muzurović became the Bosnian-Herzegovinian national team's coach, the 26-year-old Maletić received his first call for a match against Norway in March 2007. He made his debut in the 82nd minute, replacing Adnan Čustović. Bosnia and Herzegovina won the match 2–1.

He played seven games in the UEFA Euro 2008 qualifying but after Miroslav Blažević became coach, he dropped from the squad. After showing good form for Borac Banja Luka in the domestic league in 2011, he was recalled by coach Safet Sušić for the match against Romania in March.[1] He was again called up for the matches against Romania away and Albania at home in June, and responded by scoring his first goal for the national team, against Albania.[2]
