Milan Vilotić (Serbian Cyrillic: Милан Вилотић; born 21 October 1986 in Belgrade) is a Serbian footballer who plays as centre-back for Swiss Super League team Grasshopper.

Club career

Vilotić first played professional football with FK Čukarički Stankom from the age of 18. He played over 80 matches for Čukarički from 2004 before signing with Serbian giants Red Star Belgrade.

Red Star Belgrade

In summer 2009 he transferred to Red Star Belgrade. In 2010, however, he was diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening condition and missed half of the 2010-11 season. After the second half of the season, Vilotić was showing promising potential and even promoted to captain Red Star for a brief period in the 2011 summer off-season. However, at the half-time of a friendly match with F.C. Ashdod, Red Star coach Robert Prosinečki got upset at Vilotić and said in a subsequent conference that he was demoted from being Red Star's captain.[1]

Grasshopper

In July 2012, Vilotić signed with Grasshopper-Club Zürich on a bosman move. He quickly became the team's most reliable centre-back and scored a penalty after over-time in the 2013 Schweizer Cup Final.

International career

Milan was part of the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship Serbian squad and has played for the Serbia national under-21 football team. In April 2010 national team coach Radomir Antić selected him in Serbia squad for a friendly match against Japan in Osaka, but Vilotić failed to debut due to stomach problems. In May 2011, he received another call up and played his first game in a Serbia jersey against Australia. In November 2013 Vilotić showed interest in playing for Montenegro on international level.[2]

Illness

In August 2010, after a medical screening he has been diagnosed with a malignant tumor on right scapula that has threatened to stop his playing career. After a surgical intervention in Bologna, and a period of recovery, during which he had undivided support of public in Serbia, in January 2011 doctors confirmed that he can play professional football again.
