Club careerEdit

Born in Požarevac, Marković took his first football steps with his hometown club Mladi Radnik.[1] He was later promoted to the first team and played regularly for the side in the Second League of FR Yugoslavia, attracting the attention of top First League clubs. Although a childhood Partizan supporter, Marković decided to accept the offer from Red Star Belgrade in January 2000, signing a five-year contract.[2] He spent the next six seasons with the Crveno-beli and won six trophies (three league titles and three national cups).

In August 2005, Marković signed with Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv. He helped them win the double in the 2006–07 season. In June 2008, Marković terminated his contract with the club in order for him to return to Red Star Belgrade.[3] He was released from his contract in January 2009.[4]

In August 2009, Marković was acquired by Croatian club Istra 1961.[5] He spent the next year and a half with the Zeleno-žuti. In January 2011, Marković signed with Austrian side First Vienna until the end of the season (with an option for another year).[6] He left the club by mutual consent in May 2012.[7] Until the end of the year, Marković played for Kazakhstan Premier League side Kaisar. He also spent some time with Alki Larnaca in Cyprus and Asswehly in Libya, before returning to Serbia and joining Sloga Petrovac in February 2014.

In the summer of 2017, Marković returned to his parent club Mladi Radnik.[8]
