Bojan Djordjic (Bojan Đorđić with a Serbian spelling, Cyrillic: Бојан Ђорђић; IPA2|ˈbɔjan ˈdʑordʑitɕ), born
6 February 1982in Belgrade, Serbia, SFR Yugoslavia), is a Swedish football player of ethnic Serbian descent. He currently plays for Allsvenskan's AIK. He is regularly employed as a pundit by TV4.
Djordjic started his career at
IF Brommapojkarnabefore moving to Manchester United in 1999 as a youth player. Although considered a budding talent, he only made two appearances for United, but was awarded the prize "Jimmy Murphy's Young Player of the Year" at the age of 18.
He was loaned to Sheffield Wednesday, Aarhus GF and Red Star Belgrade, where he scored his first senior goal against
Odense BKin the UEFA Cup 2003-04before moving, on loan again, to Rangers in January 2005. However, injuries limited his chances to establish himself in the first team at Ibrox, and he moved to Plymouth Argyle on a free transfer at the end of the 2004-05 season. Other club interested in the winger was Stockholm-based side AIK, the club that Djordjic supports.

August 24 2006, after spending just over a season at Plymouth, Djordjic was placed on the transfer list by manager Ian Hollowayas a result of his sometimes lax attitude towards the team when playing and training. He was promised the opportunity to get back into the first team once his attitude improved.
Djordjic finally returned to the starting lineup after he scored 8 goals in 5 games for the reserves and after exactly a 13-month absence, on
November 18, 2006, scoring in the 5th minute in a 1-1 away draw at Southend United. He was removed from the transfer list the following week, and went on to score in the next two consecutive games ( Leeds Unitedand Luton Town).
19 October 2007, Djordjic's contract was terminated by mutual consent due to lack of first-team opportunities.
