Elsad Zverotić (Montenegrin Cyrillic: Eлcaд Звepoтић, born 31 October 1986) is a Montenegrin football player who plays for Premier League club Fulham and the Montenegro national football team as a defensive midfielder.

Club career

Zverotić began his professional career for FC Bazenheid as a 17-year-old. He was particularly prolific for the club, scoring twelve times in twenty two games. His efforts attracted the attention of FC Wil, who signed him in 2004. Although he played a much more defensive role for Wil, he played well over 100 games in four years for club. He then moved to FC Luzern, with whom he played 84 games. On 14 July 2010, he was a trialist for Leicester City, but ultimately opted to stay with Luzern. He moved to BSC Young Boys in the 2011/12 pre-season.

Young Boys

Zverotić joined BSC Young Boys in the summer of 2011.[1] In 2012-13 UEFA Europa League Group A, Zverotić scored a memorable goal against Liverpool at Anfield on November 22, 2012.[2]

Fulham

On 2 September 2013, Zverotić signed a two-year contract with Fulham, with the option for an additional year for an undisclosed fee.[3]

International career

After beginning his career in Switzerland, Zverotić was called up by Switzerland's under-18 side. However, following this, he pledged his international career to his native Montenegro. He played his first match for Montenegro U-21 against Albania on 2 May 2007. On 7 September 2010, Zverotić scored the winning goal against Bulgaria in a UEFA Euro 2012 qualifier. A year later, he scored his second international goal, in another qualifier against England.
