Mirko Vučinić (Cyrillic: Mиpкo Bучинић; born 1 October 1983) is a Montenegrin footballer who plays as a stiker for Serie A club Juventus. Originally from the city of Nikšić, Vučinić found himself playing for the local team there during his early teen years. He quickly caught the attention of Pantaleo Corvino, the sporting director of the Italian football club Lecce and was transferred to Lecce in the summer of 2000. Between 2000 and 2006, Mirko played for Lecce as they moved between Serie A and B. His most impressive season was 2004 05, where the then 21-year-old netted 19 goals in 28 games while Lecce was in Serie A.

On the international stage, Vučinić played for the Serbia and Montenegro under-21 team, with a notable performance against the under-21 Croatian team in 2005, where he scored three goals. Due to injury, he was unable to represent Serbia and Montenegro at the FIFA World Cup in 2006. Following the split of Serbia and Montenegro in spring of 2006, Vučinić chose to represent Montenegro. He participated in Montenegro's World Cup 2010 qualifying stage, where he contributed two goals. Vučinić also scored two goals for Montenegro in their qualifying stages of the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying matches.
