Vladimir Volkov (Serbian Cyrillic: Владимир Волков; born 6 June 1986) is a Serbian-born Montenegrin footballer of partial Russian descent who plays for Serbian SuperLiga club FK Partizan and the Montenegrin national team.

Club career

Volkov started playing football in youth categories of FK Radnički Beograd when he was seven years old.[1] Later, already as a senior, he played for FK BSK Borča from 2006 to early 2008, when he was moved to Portimonense. After that, Volkov spent the first part of the 2008–09 season with OFK Beograd, before moving to Moldovan champions FC Sheriff in 2009.


Volkov was transferred to FK Partizan before the end of the 2010–11 season, signing a three-year contract on 14 May 2011.[2] He quickly established himself as first choice of coaches Aleksandar Stanojević and Avram Grant mostly because of his good games in qualification stages of 2011–12 UEFA Champions League.

International career

On 4 November 2011, the caretaker of the Serbian national team Radovan Ćurčić, called-up Volkov for two friendly matches against Mexico and Honduras. He debuted on 15 November, playing the full match against Honduras.[3]

Under new FIFA rules, a player who has dual citizenship and has played only one match for one of the two countries can change the decision to play for the other national team. As the Serbian national team "showed no interest", Volkov accepted Brnović's call to join the Montenegrin national team.[4] On 25 May 2012, Volkov made a debut for the Montenegrin national team as a starter in a friendly match against Belgium.[5]

Personal life

Born in Belgrade, Vladimir's paternal great-grandparents migrated from Russia to Serbia in 1917. Besides his native Serbian, he also speaks English, Portuguese and Russian.[6]
