Zoran Banović (Serbian Cyrillic: Зоран Бановић; born 14 October 1977) is a former Montenegrin football goalkeeper.


Banović started to play football in his home town Nikšić in local club FK Sutjeska. Between 2004 and 2008 he was part of the notable Serbian club Crvena zvezda. For four years in Zvezda Banović earned 17 appearances in the Serbian SuperLiga.

In February 2009 Banović was invited by Bulgarian side Spartak Varna to join the club for a trial period, which began on 17 February. He made his team debut a few days later, in a 1-0 friendly win against PFC Svetkavitsa. On 22 February Spartak signed Banović to a one-a-half-year deal.

In 2009, he returned to Montenegro where has represented FK Otrant, FK Mornar, FK Budućnost Podgorica and FK Čelik Nikšić.[1]

International career[edit]

In 2004 Banović played 90 minutes for Serbia and Montenegro national football team in a friendly match against Northern Ireland.

In 2007, he was expected to be called up for Montenegro's inaugural match against Hungary but he never got the call from head coach Zoran Filipović, mainly due to his rare occasions to prove himself at Red Star Belgrade at that time.
