Ivan Obradović (Serbian Cyrillic: Иван Обрадовић; born 25 July 1988) is a Serbian professional footballer who plays as a defender for Belgian club Anderlecht and the Serbia national team.

At international level, Obradović represented Serbia at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Club career[edit]

Obradović came through the youth system at Partizan, making his senior debut with their affiliated side Teleoptik in 2006. He was promoted to Partizan first team squad under manager Miroslav Đukić, making his debut in a 1–0 home league win over Vojvodina on 22 April 2007. Until the end of the 2006–07 season, Obradović recorded four more appearances. He subsequently signed his first professional contract with Partizan, on 7 June 2007, penning a five-year deal.[1] In the following two seasons, Obradović established himself as a first team regular and helped Partizan win two domestic doubles. He made a total of 55 league appearances for the club, scoring his only goal against Javor Ivanjica on 23 August 2009, the game ended 1–1.

On 24 August 2009, Obradović was officially transferred to Spanish club Zaragoza for an undisclosed fee.[2] He was still allowed to play for Partizan the following Thursday, against MŠK Žilina in the UEFA Europa League play-off round.[3] During his four years at La Romareda, Obradović struggled with knee injuries that caused him to miss numerous games. He made a total of 48 appearances in all competitions. In August 2013, one year before expiration of his contract, Obradović was released by mutual consent.[4]

After leaving Zaragoza, Obradović returned to Serbia and trained with top flight club Rad.[5] He also spent some time on trial at Dutch club Vitesse in early 2014, but failed to get a contract.[6] In March 2014, Obradović eventually signed for Belgian side Mechelen until the end of the season, with an option for another one.[7]

After his consistent performances with Mechelen, Obradović secured a move to Anderlecht in June 2015.

International career[edit]

Obradović was capped for Serbia at under-19 and under-21 level, representing the latter at the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship.

Obradović made his senior debut for Serbia on 6 September 2008, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 home win over the Faroe Islands at the start of the World Cup 2010 qualifying phase. He scored his first international goal in a 3–1 win away at Austria on 15 October 2008. Eventually, Obradović was selected by Radomir Antić in the final 23-man squad for the main tournament.[8]
