Serbian Player of the Year (2011)


Bio: Strong, powerful and with a wicked strike of the ball, Aleks Kolarov combines a potent attacking threat with defensive duties.

 No stranger to a spectacular goal, the Serbian has made overlapping runs from left back his trademark.

In 2012, he changed the face of Christmas for City fans around the world – his rendition of “Jingle Bells” went viral and he was back the following year with another gift, putting very much his own spin on the old classic “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” for the CityTV cameras.

A graduate of Red Star Belgrade’s youth system, Kolarov’s impressive displays for Serbian top tier sides FC Cukaricki and OFK Beograd earned him a move to Lazio at 21, and he made over a century of appearances for the Italian giants before City came calling.

Arriving in Manchester in 2010, the then 24-year-old wasted no time in adding more medals to his collection.

In his first season in a City shirt, Kolarov helped the Blues overcome Stoke in the FA Cup Final and he finished his second season in England as a Premier League Champion.

By the conclusion of the 2014/15 campaign, the defender had turned out 168 times for City, scoring 17 goals and added a second Premier League title and a Capital One Cup winner’s medal to his lengthy CV.

A key member of the Serbia side that reached the 2007 u21 European Championships, Kolarov has been a full Serbia international since 2008 and represented his country at the 2010 World Cup.
