Toni Šunjić (born 15 December 1988) is a Bosnian professional footballer who plays as a centre back for the Italian club Palermo, on loan from VfB Stuttgart, and the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team.

Club career[edit]

Šunjić began his career with HŠK Zrinjski Mostar of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Premier League.

For the season 2010–11 he was loaned to Belgian Pro League outfit Kortrijk.[2] He didn't have a good season, failing to establish himself as a regular starter, so Kortrijk decided not to buy him, and he returned to Zrinjski for the first part of the 2011–12 season.[3]

In 2012, for the second part of the 2011–12 season, he joined Ukrainian club Zorya Luhansk.[4] There he established himself as a regular member of starting 11, earning his first international cap as a member of Zorya. His tenure at Ukrainian club lasted two and a half seasons.

On July 9, 2014, after two good performances at the World Cup, he signed a 3-year-deal with Russian club Kuban Krasnodar.[5]

On 27 August 2015 he moved to VfB Stuttgart, on a three-year deal.[6]

In January 2017 Šunjić was loaned out to U.S. Città di Palermo until the end of the 2016–17 season.[7]
