Mirko Vucinic

Mirko Vucinic has made a significant impact on Serie A during his time with Lecce, Roma and Juventus.

The striker moved to Italy as a 17-year-old in 2000, joining Lecce. He won the Coppa Italia with the Primavera, and before long the Montenegrin had cemented his place as a regular in the first team, featuring on 28 occasions throughout the side’s 2002/03 promotion-winning season.

Juventus witnessed his talent first hand early on in his career, when a spectacular overhead kick was a moment of genius for Lecce in an otherwise humbling 5-2 loss at the Delle Alpi in 2004/05.

Having smashed 31 goals in Serie A and Coppa Italia competitions for the Giallorossi, the striker’s form earned him a move to another Giallorossi side -AS Roma - in summer 2006.

Despite struggling with injuries during his first campaign, Vucinic did enjoy a personal highlight of scoring the deciding goal against Manchester United in the first-leg of the Champions League quarter-final, and his five seasons with Roma saw them win an Italian Super Cup and two Italian cups.

He joined Juventus in 2011 as the first Montenegrin to play for the club, and since then he has proved a favourite among the fans as a naturally gifted player capable of the extraordinary.

Last season he weighed in with 14 goals in all competitions, a crucial man in bringing a second consecutive Scudetto title to Turin.

Vucinic was also a consistent performer for Serbia and Montenegro before the two nations became independent. He was instrumental in their 2006 World Cup qualification, but cruelly missed out on the tournament due to injury.

The striker has now became both captain and symbol of an independent Montenegro, and he consigned his name to the history books by hitting the country’s first ever goal in a friendly against Hungary.
