Mario Bilate (born 16 July 1991 in Moscow) is a Russian-born Dutch professional footballer who currently plays as a striker for FC Den Bosch in the Dutch Eerste Divisie.

Playing career[edit]

XerxesDZB[edit]

Bilate broke into the XerxesDZB first team in March 2010 and scored seven goals in the ten games he appeared in.[1] His form was impressive enough to win him a move to Sparta Rotterdam, where he had played earlier as a youth.[1]

Sparta Rotterdam[edit]

Bilate joined Sparta Rotterdam in January 2011 on a two and a half year deal.[1] He made his competitive debut on 7 August 2011 in a 1-0 win over Fortuna Sittard.[2] In the summer of 2012 Bilate then signed a contract extension to keep him at the club until 2015.[3]

Dundee United[edit]

Bilate was released from his Sparta Rotterdam contract a year early and signed a two-year contract with Dundee United in July 2014.[4] Bilate had originally been set to join Eerste Divisie champions Willem II but the move fell through at the last minute after the Sparta Rotterdam board decided they wanted a transfer fee.[5] He made his debut as a substitute in Dundee United's opening match of the 2014–15 season, a 3–0 win against Aberdeen on 10 August 2014.[6] He then scored the winning goal on his home debut three days later, in a 1–0 victory over Motherwell, again after coming off the bench.[7] He was released from his contract at Tannadice in November 2015, after making only two appearances in the 2015–16 season.[8]
