Rodoljub Marjanović (Serbian Cyrillic: Родољуб Марјановић; born 27 January 1988) is a former Serbian football player who played most often as a forward.

He is widely known for being recognized by FIFPro's Black Book Eastern Europe after allegedly being threatened with death for asking the Football Association of Serbia to take action for unpaid salaries during a loan spell to Hajduk Kula.[1][2]

Early life[edit]

Though born in Osijek, he was raised in nearby Bolman. It was in Bolman where he received his nickname Rodja. He moved to Sombor with his family in 1997 where he still lives today.

Club career[edit]

Career in Serbia[edit]

Marjanović played for a number of teams in Serbia, starting his career at Rad Beograd. In 2007, he moved to OFK Beograd, subsequently having a loan spell at Hajduk Kula.[3] He played the first half of the 11/12 season at Radnički Sombor, before moving to Romania.

CSMS Iaşi[edit]

In March 2012 Marjanović joined Liga II team CSMS Iaşi.[4] He was given the number 7 on his jersey.

On April 4, 2012, he scored two goals against FC Snagov, playing only the first half.[5] He helped his team to a comfortable 5-0 win. Three days later, Marjanović scored another two goals, in the 4-1 victory against Callatis Mangalia.[6] He scored the equalising goal and the victory goal also, bringing the score of the game from 0-1, to 2-1 in a matter of minutes.[7]

Although Rodoljub only played in 7 games for CSMS, having joined the team in the winter break, his goals proved to be vital as the team finished second in table and gained promotion to Liga I, only two points above Delta Tulcea.[8]

Čelik Nikšić[edit]

On January 9, 2012, it was announced that Marjanović signed for ambitious Montenegrin club FK Čelik Nikšić.[9]
