Uroš Spajić (Serbian Cyrillic: Урош Спајић, pronounced [ǔroʃ spâːjitɕ]; born 13 February 1993) is a Serbian professional footballer who plays as a defender for Russian club Krasnodar.

Club career[edit]

Red Star Belgrade[edit]

Spajić made his professional debut for Red Star Belgrade on 27 October 2010 in a Serbian Cup match against Borac Čačak. He was subsequently loaned to Red Star's farm team Sopot in the Serbian third tier, where he played the 2011–12 season. In his final season at Red Star, he appeared in 16 games and became recognized as a player with remarkable qualities.[2]

Toulouse[edit]

On 29 May 2013, Red Star Belgrade and Toulouse FC agreed on Spajić's transfer to the French side for €1.5 million.[3] Spajić made his Toulouse debut against Valenciennes on the opening day of the 2013–14 season; after Steeve Yago committed a foul to concede a penalty, the uninvolved Spajić was sent off in an apparent case of mistaken identity.[4]

Anderlecht[edit]

On 31 August 2016, Spajić joined Belgian club Anderlecht on a season-long loan deal.[5] The deal was made permanent near the end of the 2016-17 season.

Krasnodar[edit]

On 26 May 2018, he signed a 5-year contract with the Russian Premier League side FC Krasnodar.[6]

International career[edit]

Spajić first played for Serbia's U21 team in a friendly with Israel U21 on 6 February 2013.[7] He made his debut for the Serbian national team on 4 September 2015 in a EURO 2016 qualifier against Armenia which Serbia won 2–0.[8]

In June 2018 he was selected in Serbia’s squad for the 2018 World Cup,[9] but he failed to make any appearances there.
