Club career

Igor Duljaj is probably the best defensive midfielder to come out of FK Partizan's youth school in the '90s. Duljaj joined the club in 1990 at the age of eleven and made his first-team debut in 1998. An important figure in Partizan's league success in 1999 since then has developed into a mature, imposing central midfield player and was of the best players in Partizan's side that won the titles in 2002 and 2003. Hard-working Duljaj has already made more than 150 league appearances for Partizan and in the end of 2003 he was allowed to leave club.

Once admired by many European giants Duljaj did not get good offers and decided to stay in Partizan to help them reach the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time in the history of Serbian football. A crucial protection in front of defense Duljaj possesses unbelievable stamina and strength that left people with the impression he could play two successive games in a row.

Personal life

Duljaj was born in Topola, SR Serbia, at the time part of Yugoslavia. His family owns a bakery, and still lives in Topola.[1] His nickname is Duki.[2] He has two younger brothers, Joakim and Nenad, who are in charge of a football academy in Topola.[2]

In 2003, he was awarded the best athlete of JSD Partizan, voted by the fans. In 2007, he was awarded the Golden Ball by the Football Association of Serbia for playing 50 matches for the national team. In 2009, he founded the Duljaj Football Academy. After winning the UEFA Cup 08–09, Duljaj and his fellow team members were awarded the Order of Courage III by Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko.
