The most successful player is Mirko Vučinić, who has won the award seven times, as well as being the inaugural winner. Stevan Jovetić is the youngest player to receive this honour so far; he was 20 years old when he won the award.
In 2013, Mirko Vučinić won the Montenegrin Footballer of the Year for the seventh time. However, the public opinion was that in 2013, Dejan Damjanović should have been given the award. Damjanović scored four goals in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers (two against England and one against Poland and Ukraine), was announced as the top scorer of the K-League and the MVP of the 2013 AFC Champions League. The media agreed that Vučinić was the best overall Montenegrin footballer, however, Damjanović's performances in 2013 were far better than Vučinić's, who was injured during the decisive qualification matches of the national team. Finally, Montenegrin website CG-Fudbal awarded Damjanović "Best Montenegrin Footballer of the Year", according to a poll voted by the fans.
