Mario Cvitanović (born 6 May 1975) is a Croatian football coach and a former defender. He has made seven appearances for the Croatia national football team. He works as a manager of the Under-19 side of Dinamo Zagreb.

In 1995, Cvitanović started his career in the Croatian capital, where he won five consecutive national championships with Dinamo Zagreb (formerly Croatia Zagreb).[1] He then spent four seasons in the Italian league, playing for Hellas Verona, Venezia, Genoa and Napoli before moving to Belgian side Germinal Beerschot. Following two seasons in the Belgian league, Cvitanović re-joined Dinamo for their 2006–07 Champions League campaign,[2] before leaving after their early exit on a free transfer to German side Energie Cottbus.[3] Cvitanović played three seasons with Cottbus until being released in 2009.[4]
