Club career

A prolific striker, Lazarević started out at his hometown club Sutjeska Nikšić. He was the Yugoslav Second League (Group East) top scorer on three occasions, before moving to Red Star Belgrade in 1966. In the following four seasons, Lazarević scored 70 goals from 112 appearances in the Yugoslav First League, helping the club win three consecutive championships (1968, 1969 and 1970). He subsequently moved abroad and went on to play for RFC Liège and Nancy, before returning to Red Star Belgrade in 1972. In the 1972–73 season, Lazarević was the league's joint top scorer with 25 goals, as the club won the title. He later moved abroad again, joining the Toronto Metros in 1974. Shortly after, Lazarević returned to his homeland and played one season with Vrbas,[1] before retiring from the game.
