Marko Ćetković (Cyrillic; Mapкo Ћeткoвић, born 10 July 1986 in Podgorica) is a Montenegrin professional footballer who plays for Partizani Tirana in the Albanian Superliga as well as the Montenegro national team.[1]

His brother Đorđije is also a Montenegro international who has been capped 7 times by the national team, and his uncle is former Yugoslavia international footballer Predrag Mijatović, who was one of world's top footballers in the 1990s with his time at Partizan, Valencia and Real Madrid.

Club career[edit]

Ćetković began his career with FK Crvena Stijena before he joined FK Zeta Golubovac in 2006. He played for FK Zeta Golubovac against Rangers.[2]

Partizan[edit]

In July 2007, Ćetković made a €300,000 transfer to Serbian giants FK Partizan, where he played just eight games (6 in Serbian Superliga and 2 Champions League Qualification). He would later tell a Serbian journalist that "Partizan was a mistake" in his career.[3]

Mogren[edit]

In August 2008, Ćetković signed for FK Mogren.[4]

Jagiellonia[edit]

In July 2011, he joined Polish team Jagiellonia Białystok on a three-year contract.[5] He spent two half-seasons out on loan; first in Thailand with Buriram United F.C. and then with Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biała. Overall, Ćetković played a total of 19 league games for Jagiellonia.

Budućnost[edit]

After spending two seasons in Poland, Ćetković returned to his homeland and signed for FK Budućnost Podgorica in July 2013.[6] He started his 2013-14 season scoring three goals in 13 games for Budućnost.

Laçi[edit]

On 16 August 2014, Ćetković officially signed with Albanian Superliga side Laçi on a one-year deal, taking the vacant number 20 for the upcoming 2014–15 season.[7] It was also reported that the team's goalkeeper Miroslav Vujadinović had his part on Ćetković's transfer, convincing the player to join the team.[7]

He made his official debut with the club on 24 August in team's opening league match of the season against Partizani Tirana at home, coming on as a second-half substitute.[8] Ćetković scored his first goal of the season in the matchday 5 against Tirana, netting the opening goal of the 2–0 home win, and was selected Man of the Match.[9] Two week later, Ćetković was again in the scoresheet where he converted a penalty-kick to help Laçi conquer Vllaznia Shkodër 3–0 at home.[10]

On 21 July 2015, during the preparations for the new season, Ćetković was forced undergo surgery in his right knee in an hospital in Zagreb that kept him out until November 2015.[11][12] The constanct pain in his leg had concerned him for months, and the surgery was unavoidable.[13] Due to the surgery, Ćetković missed the European campaign and the start of the season.[13]

After an impressive first season in Albanian football he was subject to interest and formal offers from Skënderbeu Korçë, Kukësi, Partizani Tirana and Tirana, but he renewed his contract with KF Laçi for another year.[14][15]

In April 2016, Ćetković scored his team's both goals in the 2015–16 Albanian Cup semi-final tie against Skënderbeu Korçë, as Laçi progressed to the final thanks to the away goal rule.[16] However, in the final, Laçi was defeated 5–3 on penalties after the regular and extra time finished in a 1–1; Ćetković himself scored his team's second penalty shootout attempt.[17] He left the team in June.[18]

Sarajevo[edit]

On 14 June 2016, Ćetković signed with Sarajevo of Bosnia and Herzegovina.[19]

Partizani Tirana[edit]

On 12 January 2017, Ćetković returned in Albanian Superliga by signing an 18-month contract with Partizani Tirana, taking squad number 21 for the second part of 2016–17 season.[20][21]

International career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Ćetković's first international appearance was for Serbia and Montenegro U17; he debuted on 24 March 2003 against Finland for the second qualifying round of the 2004 UEFA European Under-17 Championship, which finished in a 1–1 draw.[22] Following that, Ćetković made another two appearances, scoring once in the process. Ćetković continued to play for Montenegro U21,[23] making nine appearances from when Montenegro declared independence from Serbia.[22]

Senior[edit]

On 17 November 2010, Ćetković made his debut with the senior side during the friendly match against Azerbaijan, appearing in the last 15 minutes of the 2–0 home win.[24]

He made his competitive debut for Montenegro on 11 October 2011 in the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying match against Switzerland, playing full-90 minutes in a 2–0 away loss.[25]

Ćetković was called up again in the senior side by its new coach Branko Brnović for the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying play-off tie against Czech Republic. In the first leg at Generali Arena on 11 November 2011, Ćetković was even in the bench with the match finishing in a 2–0 loss for Ćetković's side.[26] In the returning leg four days later, he was on the bench but still unable to make his debut with Montenegro who was defeated 1–0 at home and was kicked out with the aggregate 3–0.[27]

On 17 November 2013, he scored his first goal for the Montenegrin national team in a friendly against Luxembourg.[28]
