Club career

He started his career with hometown club FK Radnički Kragujevac.

Before joining Feyenoord in the summer of 2003 for €7 million the forward had enjoyed 3 successful seasons at Partizan Belgrade, making 60 appearances and scoring 20 goals for the club. Lazović found it difficult to break into the first team squad at Feyenoord and moved onto Bayer Leverkusen in 2005 on a loan deal.

He also failed to settle in at Leverkusen, and returned to Partizan Belgrade in January 2006 on a 6-month loan deal. He had a decent half-season at his old stomping ground, scoring 5 league goals, but various reports continued about his apparent disruptive dressing room influence. In early May 2006, after the last league match of the season, Lazović was reportedly involved in a training ground bust up with teammate Niša Saveljić with bad blood even continuing later during lunch at the training facility.[1]

Over the summer of 2006, Lazović returned to the Eredivisie, this time with Vitesse. Vitesse paid Feyenoord €1.5 million for the forward, and Feyenoord agreed to pay the first year of his salary. To the dismay of many Feyenoord fans Lazović had an excellent season at Vitesse, being a serious contender for the league's golden boot for most of the season. He attracted attention from PSV Eindhoven early on, before moving to them after the season ended for €6.6 million, signing a five year deal. Lazović took over the number 9 jersey from legendary forward Patrick Kluivert, who was released and went to OSC Lille. [2][3]

On 3 March 2010, Zenit Saint Petersburg completed the transfer of the striker from Eredivisie club PSV Eindhoven almost for 5 million €uros.[4]

"Danko Lazović told us about the interest of Zenit about a week ago. We've since discussed his situation several times and have eventually decided to cash in on him," said general director Jan Reker.[5]

International career

Lazović made his international debut for the Serbian national team on 27 March 2002, in a friendly match against Brazil in Fortaleza.
