Milan Đurić (born 22 May 1990) is a Bosnian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Championship club Bristol City and the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

He played for Vis Pesaro's youth system until 2005, when the club declared bankruptcy and he was consequently released for free, being successively signed by San Marino and successively Cesena, where he played for the youth team coached by former Bosnian star Davor Jozić.[1][2]

Cesena[edit]

He made his first-team debut for Cesena on 30 October 2007, in a match lost to Mantova[3] and scored his first professional goal a few weeks later in a league game against Frosinone.[4]

Parma[edit]

In June 2010 he was transferred to Parma, in a co-ownership deal.[5] On 30 June 2010, Đurić was loaned to Ascoli.[6] On 28 January 2011, he was loaned out to Crotone. This deal was extended on 15 June 2011 for another year.[7]

Cesena return[edit]

After Cesena bought Đurić back in 2012, he spent the 2012–13 season on loan with Lega Pro Prima Divisione club Cremonese.[8] In July 2013 he was loaned to newly promoted Serie B club Trapani.[9] In January 2014, he was loaned to Cittadella.[10]

Đurić then finally got the chance to play for Cesena, spending the 2014–15 season playing in Serie A, being a first-team regular. His best performance came against Juventus, where he scored one goal, and assisted for the other, in a 2–2 draw.[11] Cesena were relegated at the end of the season, but Đurić decided to stay with the club in Serie B.[12]

Bristol City[edit]

On 4 January 2017, Đurić joined Championship side Bristol City for an undisclosed fee.[13] On 7 January 2017 he made his debut in the FA Cup Third Round tie against Fleetwood Town.[14] He scored his first goal for the club in a 1–0 win over Rotherham United on 4 February 2017.[15] In late March, Đurić had a hernia operation, ruling him out for most of the rest of the season.[16] Problems with hernia reappeared in July, ruling him out indefinitely.[17]

International career[edit]

In July 2010, Đurić expressed his desire to play for the Bosnia and Herzegovina.[18] Indeed, on 12 February 2012, Milan Đurić got his first call-up for Bosnia and Herzegovina under-21 against Serbia under-21 friendly match in Belgrade,[19] but waited for his debut until 1 June 2012 when he was substituted on in 79th minute and scored 10 minutes later which was his first ever goal for his native country in a comfortable 3–0 home victory in UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification game over Belarus under-21, at Grbavica in Sarajevo.[20] Five days later he started the match against San Marino under-21, in Sarajevo on 6 June, and scored his second goal for national team and second of the game in 3–1 win, while added one assist for the first goal of the game.[21] In game against Greece under-21, on 7 September in Sarajevo, he scored yet another, his third in a three, and fourth of the game for a comfortable 4–0 win.[22]

On 10 September 2012, against Germany under-21, Đurić scored his first hat-trick for Bosnia and Herzegovina under-21, while also making an assist for Bosnia's fourth goal of the game, which ended in tie (4–4). This made impressive tally of six goals, with two assists, in just four played games.[23]

On 27 March 2015, he made his debut for the senior team against the Andorra after being subbed in for Vedad Ibišević.[24] On 10 October 2015, Đurić scored his first goal against Wales heading the ball after an assist by Miralem Pjanić. In 90th minute, he gave an assist to Vedad Ibišević for final result 2–0.[25] Three days later, he scored his second international goal against Cyprus, what proved to be a winning goal in a 3–2 victory and sent Bosnia and Herzegovina into Euro 2016 qualifying play-offs.[26]

Personal life[edit]

Đurić was born in Tuzla, present-day Bosnia and Herzegovina, at the time part of SFR Yugoslavia. His father, Goran, was a former Bosnian third division footballer. His family moved to Pesaro, Italy in 1991, because of the outbreak of Bosnian war.[1] Although he was born in Tuzla, his family is from Vlasenica.[18];
