In 2002, he returned to Bosnia and Herzegovina and played with Sloboda Tuzla, Čelik Zenica and Budućnost Banovići in the Bosnian Premier League.[5] He retired in 2008 while playing for Sloboda.

Vojvodić earned 12 caps for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team.[citation needed]

Managerial careerEdit

After finishing his playing career, Vojvodić was a manager of a number of Bosnian clubs.

He started in 2009, managing Sutjeska Foča and finishied the first half of the season at top of the First League of RS.[6] Next he coached Proleter Teslić, from where he moved to Drina Zvornik in September 2010.[7]

He also managed his former club Sloboda Tuzla, Radnički Lukavac, Slavija Sarajevo, Travnik, GOŠK Gabela, with whom he won the 2016–17 First League of FBiH[8], and Tuzla City which was at that time known as "Sloga Simin Han".[9]

Vojvodić worked as the manager of Borac Banja Luka, a position he came on in March 2018.[10] In the 2018–19 First League of RS season, on 11 May 2019, in a 1–3 away win against Rudar Prijedor, he got Borac promoted back to the Bosnian Premier League.[11] On 5 June 2019, Vojvodić decided to leave Borac after stating that the club did not want him to be the clubs's manager in the next season.[12]

On 5 September 2019, he was named new manager of Serbian First League club Radnički 1923, a team he previously played at and also captained which was at the time known as "Radnički Kragujevac".[13] His first win as Radnički manager was in a 1–0 home league match against Zlatibor Čajetina on 8 September 2019.[14] In November 2019, he was sacked from the position of Radnički manager.

On 13 December 2019, Vojvodić became the new manager of, at the time, First League of FBiH club Olimpik.[15] In Vojvodić's first official game as Olimpik manager, his team drew 1–1, but later lost in a penalty shootout against Široki Brijeg in the quarter-finals of the 2019–20 Bosnian Cup on 4 March 2020.[16] His first win as Olimpik's manager was in a 2–0 home league match against Slaven Živinice on 7 March 2020.[17] On 26 May 2020, the 2019–20 First League of FBiH season ended abruptly due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in Bosnia and Herzegovina and by default, Olimpik, led by Vojvodić, were crowned league champions and got promoted back to the Bosnian Premier League.[18]
