Dušan "Srbenda" Marković (Serbian Cyrillic: Душан Mapкoвић; March 9, 1906, in Krčedin, Austro-Hungary – November 29, 1974, in Novi Sad, SFR Yugoslavia) was a Serbian football player and manager.

Nicknamed "Srbenda", he was known[by whom?] as a great, cleaver and effective striker. Anecdotally, his killer instinct was specially awake every time he played against BSK Belgrade, the best pre-war Serbian club, having scored at least once in every match he played against them. He was specially dangerous because he had the ability to shoot and surprise the goalkeepers from any angle.

He spent most of his career with FK Vojvodina where he played for 14 years, between 1921 until 1935 being one of their most influential players of the pre-war period. Afterward, he had short spells with BSK Belgrade and French club Grenoble.

He was part of the Yugoslavia national football team for some period, but he only played one match, as a substitute of the famous striker Blagoje Marjanović in a friendly match played on October 9, 1932, in Prague, against Czechoslovakia, a 2–1 win. He was part of the Yugoslav team at the 1930 FIFA World Cup, but didn't play any match.

After retiring, he remained linked to football as a manager, having coached several clubs in Yugoslavia and Tunisia.

He died in 1974, in the aftermath of a prostate surgery.[1]
