Goran Jerković (born 10 November 1986) is a French football striker who currently plays for Laotian club Lao Toyota.

Club career[edit]

Jerković played in the French and Belgian lower divisiond before signing a contract with Lithuainian club Žalgiris. In June 2010, during a league game against Šiauliai, he suffered serious injuries to his cruciate ligament and meniscus that put him out of action for half a year.[2] He recovered from an injury in the 2011 season and extended his contract with Žalgiris, but soon afterwards the contract was terminated by mutual agreement.[3]

During the off-season, he moved to rival A Lyga club Tauras Tauragė.

On 24 December 2011, he joined Esteghlal.[4] He made his debut for Esteghlal against Shahrdari Yasuj in the Hazfi Cup. On 10 January 2012, he score his first goal for Esteghlal in his first start against Damash.[5] His 91st-minute goal against Al-Rayyan in AFC Champions League helped Esteghlal earn a vital away victory. He also converted the winning penalty in 2012 Hazfi Cup Final.

In the summer of 2015, following spells with Thai clubs Buriram United, Bangkok Glass (loan) and Army United, he moved to Serbia and signed with Jagodina.[6] He made only nine appearances before he was on the move again with brief stays at a number of clubs before signing for East Riffa of the Bahraini Premier League in January 2019.[7]

On November 12, 2019, he signed with Italian club Calcio Foggia 1920 S.S.D.[8] However, for administrative reasons, he was not qualified to play until 1 January 2020 so, instead, he joined Laotian side Lao Toyota FC without having made an official appearance for Foggia.
