Milan Rodić (Serbian Cyrillic: Милан Родић, pronounced [mǐlan rǒːditɕ]; born 2 April 1991) is a Serbian professional footballer who plays as a left back for Red Star Belgrade.

Club career[edit]

OFK Beograd[edit]

Rodić played his first professional match for OFK Beograd on 26 April 2009, against FK Partizan at the age of 18. Almost two years later, on 25 April 2012, he was named left-back in Sportal's ideal team of Round 26 in the 2011–12 Serbian SuperLiga.[2]

Zenit St. Petersburg[edit]

On 31 January 2013, Rodić signed a contract with Zenit St. Petersburg. On 21 February 2013, coach Luciano Spalletti deployed Rodić in the 85th minute as a substitute for Sergei Semak against Liverpool in the 2012-13 UEFA Europa League.[3] However, Rodić ended up playing only five matches for Zenit before being loaned out to FC Volga Nizhny Novgorod and Zenit's reserve team, after which he transferred to Krylia Sovetov.[4]

Krylia Sovetov[edit]

In August 2015, Rodić signed with Krylia Sovetov. Over the course of two seasons, Rodić got back into competitive shape.[4] After two years with Krylia Sovetov, Rodić thanked the fans and commented that he was happy to play for Krylia, but that he missed his family in Serbia.[4]

Red Star Belgrade[edit]

On 21 July 2017, Rodić signed a three-year contract with Serbian side Red Star Belgrade.[5] Red Star had paid approximately 250,000 to Krylia Sovetov for Rodić's transfer.[4]

International career[edit]

On 6 June 2011, Rodić made his debut with the Serbia national under-21 football team against Sweden's U-21 team. Five years later, Rodić got his first call up to the senior Serbia squad for a friendly match against Russia on 5 June 2016.[6]

In May 2018 he was named in Serbia's preliminary squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[7] On 4 June, he made his international debut in a friendly match against Chile, coming on as a substitute for Aleksandar Kolarov in the 80th minute.[8] He was also selected in Serbia’s squad for the 2018 World Cup[9], but he failed to make any appearances there.
