• Signed a five-year deal with PSV in 2007 and scored 11 goals in his first season, the last of them − away to Vitesse in Arnhem on the final day − securing the club's fourth successive title; also scored on his UEFA Champions League debut, in a 2-1 win against PFC CSKA Moskva.

• Became a regular Serbian international while at PSV and helped his country qualify for the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals, where he was a substitute in all three matches; announced his retirement from international football in March 2011 with 43 caps and 11 goals.

• Left Eindhoven for St Petersburg in March 2010 and won the Russian Premier-Liga with Zenit at the first attempt, scoring five goals and providing seven assists.
