Biography


Dusan’s career began in his native Slovakia with FC Nitra, moving to ZTS Dubnica in 2003. He became a regular in the Dubnica line up for around three years and then moved to MSK Zilina for the 2005-06 season. He spent part of the next season on loan at FC Senec and then returned to ZTS Dubnica on loan for a year and a half. On returning to MSK Zilina he became first choice there in 2008-09.

The Goalkeeper signed a pre-contract agreement with United in July 2009, arriving at Tannadice at the mid-season point in December after his contract with MSK Zilina finally came to an end. He made his first team debut against Partick Thistle in the 4th Round of the Scottish Cup and went on to play in all the remaining fixtures that season. A vital part of the team that secured third place in the SPL, gaining United European qualification for the first time in five years, Dusan only conceded three goals throughout United’s six matches that eventually lead to the Club’s success in the Scottish Cup, with Dusan collecting a winners medal after the victory over Ross County in the final at Hampden Park.

In August 2009, he made his international debut against Iceland in a friendly, coming on as a second half substitute, and won his second cap against Cameroon in May before being selected for the Slovakian squad that travelled to South Africa for the 2010 FIFA World Cup Finals. Dusan was an ever present in the United team during the 2010-11 SPL campaign, and missed just one game all season due to a knee injury. He played in both Europa League qualifier matches against AEK Athens, and again the following year against Slask Wroclaw after helping United qualify for Europe for the second consecutive season.

When his contract expired at the end of the 2011-12 season Dusan joined Polish side Pogon Szczecin but failed to establish himself in the first team and a year later signed for Slovan Bratislava back in his native country. A regular there at first, winning the Slovakian Championship in 2013/14, he spent time out on loan with FC Nitra before moving to Greek side Iraklis in July 2015, and Beroe Stara Zagora in Bulgaria in January 2017.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Dušan was born on this date in Nitra, Czechoslovakia.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Dusan’s career began in his native Slovakia with FC Nitra, moving to ZTS Dubnica in 2003. He became a regular in the Dubnica line up for around three years and then moved to MSK Zilina for the 2005-06 season. He spent part of the next season on loan at FC Senec and then returned to ZTS Dubnica on loan for a year and a half. On returning to MSK Zilina he became first choice there in 2008-09.

  • Peter Houston made three changes to the team that started in the defeat at home to Aberdeen. Pernis replaced Nicky Weaver between the posts, behind the familiar back four of Kovacevic, Webster, Kenneth and Dixon. David Robertson started in place of Sean Dillon, alongside Morgaro Gomis, Prince Buaben and Craig Conway, while Jon Daly returned to the starting line-up to replace the injured Danny Cadamarteri and partner Casalinuovo up front.

  • Last Appearance - Motherwell 0 - 2 Dundee United

    United’s last game of the season was a visit to Fir Park to face Motherwell who had beaten Peter Houston’s side to third place in the league and subsequently a Champions League qualifier with second placed Rangers banned from Europe having entered administration earlier in the year. Houston made four changes to his starting line-up from the impressive 1-0 win over Celtic at Tannadice the previous week. Gavin Gunning and Robbie Nielson dropped out altogether with injuries whilst Willo Flood and Gary Mackay-Steven were demoted to the bench. In came Keith Watson, Stuart Armstrong, Danny Swanson and Johnny Russell. It was a day of emotion at Fir Park with players on both sides playing their last matches for their respective clubs. Motherwell skipper Stephen Craigan received a tremendous reception as he led the home side out for the last time after making 367 appearances for the club over the course of two spells at Fir Park. For United it was farewell to three heroes who had lifted the Scottish Cup in 2010 with Dusan Pernis, Scott Robertson and Danny Swanson all moving onto pastures new.
