Jovan Vidović (born 6 January 1989 in Ljubljana) is a Slovenian football defender, who is currently playing for SV Meppen.

Club career[edit]

He started his football career at Šmartno, but later left the side for Slovan together with Šmartno teammate Dalibor Stojanović at the age of 14. With his new club he became runner-up of Slovenian League, being second only to Maribor. He was given his nickname "Dugi" by his teammates at an early age, due to his extreme size.

In late November 2010 it was announced by Zlatko Zahovič, Maribor's director of football, that Maribor had acquired Vidović on a permanent move as a result of Siniša Andjelković transfer from Maribor to Palermo during the 2010–11 winter transfer window.[1] Domžale president Stane Oražem has confirmed the deal on the same day.[2] The transfer has been made official on 7 December 2010, when Maribor announced it on their official website. Vidović has signed a 4-year contract with the new club.

In July 2013 Vidović joined Azerbaijan Premier League side Ravan Baku on a 1-year contract with the option of another year.[3]
