CAREER

Čukarički

Ninković’s trajectory was a typical for a Serbian footballer. He is one of the few successful players from Serbia to have never gone through the more notable youth academies of Red Star, Partizan, Vojvodina, or OFK Beograd. At a very young age, Ninković joined FK Čukarički’s youth academy and later graduated into the club’s first-team. Boasting fine passing and the ability to read the game, his performances attracted several clubs in Serbia as well as in the region. As opposed to choosing one of his homeland’s larger clubs, he chose to leave Čukarički as a teenager to accept Dynamo Kyiv’s invitation.

 

Dynamo Kyiv

At the age of 19, he initially struggled for playing time in Dynamo. He gradually became a mainstay of the side, helping them win the Ukrainian Premier League three times and the domestic cup twice. The performances were noticed by Serbia’s (now former) national team coach Radomir Antić, and he has since become a regular for the Serbian national team. In the 2010–11 season, Ninković was considered as one of Dynamo’s most crucial and talented players. Some team mates described Ninković having an “eye for goal” and being a very optimistic footballer.
