Predrag Pavlović (Serbian Cyrillic: Предраг Павловић; born 19 June 1986) is a Serbian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Mladost Lučani.

Club career[edit]

Born in Kruševac, Pavlović made his first football steps at his hometown club Napredak. He later joined the youth system of Partizan, becoming a part of their promising generation, together with Nebojša Marinković, Milan Smiljanić, and Borko Veselinović, among others. In order to get senior team experience, Pavlović was sent on loan to his parent club Napredak in the 2004–05 season. He returned to Partizan in the summer of 2005, playing for their satellite club Teleoptik, before eventually going back on loan to Napredak in January 2006.[1]

In the summer of 2006, Pavlović signed a permanent contract with Napredak, before the club got promoted to the Serbian SuperLiga in 2007. He was one of the most important players for the team in the following seasons.

In the summer of 2010, Pavlović moved abroad for the first time by signing with Hungarian club Debrecen. He made two cup appearances for the first team, but also played for their reserve team in the Nemzeti Bajnokság II, before being released near the end of the year. In January 2011, Pavlović returned to his homeland, having a six-month stint with Metalac Gornji Milanovac.

On 12 July 2011, Pavlović signed a four-year contract with OFK Beograd.[2] He retired from professional football in October 2013, at the age of 27, due to a long history of injury problems. However, Pavlović came out of retirement in February of the following year by signing with Novi Pazar.

In January 2016, Pavlović moved to Lithuania and signed with Sūduva Marijampolė.[3] He spent one season at the club, helping the side reach the national cup final. In January 2017, Pavlović returned to his homeland and joined Mladost Lučani.[4]

International career[edit]

Pavlović represented Serbia and Montenegro at the 2005 UEFA Under-19 Championship in Northern Ireland. He played the full 90 minutes in all of his team's four games, as they were eliminated by England in the semi-final. Already capped for the Serbia national under-21 team, Pavlović made one appearance at the 2007 UEFA Under-21 Championship, which was hosted in the Netherlands, winning the silver medal.

Pavlović was also a member of the team that represented Serbia at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, but failed to make an appearance. He previously played in two friendlies against China U23.[5][6]
