Dejan Čurović (Serbian Cyrillic: Дејан Чуровић; born 10 August 1968) is a Serbian former professional footballer who played as a striker. He represented four clubs during his active career, playing with Zemun and Partizan in the former Yugoslavia, as well as with Vitesse and Groningen in the Netherlands.

Career[edit]

Čurović started out at his local club Zemun. He was a member of the team that won the Yugoslav Second League in 1990. In his debut season in the Yugoslav First League, Čurović scored 11 goals from 27 appearances, as the club finished in 13th place.

In the summer of 1993, Čurović was transferred to Partizan. He was the club's second-highest scorer in the 1993–94 season, behind Savo Milošević, as the club won the double.

After a successful year at Partizan, Čurović moved abroad and signed with Dutch club Vitesse. He spent the next six seasons in Arnhem, scoring 47 goals in all competitions. In the summer of 2000, Čurović switched to fellow Eredivisie club Groningen. He spent three years at the club, before retiring from the game.
