Danny Milosevic (Serbian: Дени Милошевић, Deni Milošević, born 26 June 1978 in Melbourne, Australia) is a football (soccer) player who was most recently a goalkeeper for the New Zealand Knights in the Hyundai A-League before joining West Australian club Inglewood United. A former Australian Under-23 international at the 2000 Olympic Games and under 17,20 youth international, Danny came to the Knights after five years at Leeds United in England where he was understudy to goalkeepers of such pedigree as Nigel Martyn and Paul Robinson.

Danny started off his professional career with the Canberra Cosmos in the old NSL and captained the Under 20 Australian side to the World Youth Cup in 1997 as well as playing in Germany before joining Perth Glory where he was a high profile signing under popular new coach Bernd Stange in 1998. Whilst having a strong start to his time in Perth and gaining cult hero status, an incident against the Gippsland Falcons where he ran 30 yd to push an opponent left him as a benchwarmer for the rest of the season.

Danny moved to Leeds United F.C. for £110,000 after only one season at the Perth Glory and he hardly ever got a chance with the likes of England number two Nigel Martyn and now England number one Paul Robinson ahead of him. He was eventually released by Leeds United F.C. and was signed up on a pay as you play contract by Celtic. He left the club without playing after citing personal problems.

Danny never returned to Glasgow, and was without a club until he joined the New Zealand Knights for the inaugural A-League season on the advice of former glory team mate Danny Hay. The Knights first season was a disaster, despite Milosevic's often valiant efforts in keeping scorelines below 10-0 and more like 3-0. A change in management for the second season saw two able goalkeepers brought in as competition (Mark Paston and Michael Turnbull), yet Milosevic still started the season as the club's #1. However the poor morale and politics at the club and increasing strain on them to promote people who were not dedicated to the club and its plight saw Milosevic demoted to the bench with All-Whites keeper Paston ahead of him. Before the close of the A-League's second season Milosevic was forced out of the club by internal politics of the boardroom and coaching staff.

Danny is keen to revive his career as a professional footballer.
