Deki started playing football when he was only 2(or 6)-year-old.
His father, Borislav, was a right-winger at OFK, and his mother, Dragica, played centre-forward for Sloga Zemun, one of the strongest teams in Yugoslav woman's football.
In autumn 1992 (14-year-old), he joined Red Star Beograd's youth team.
Durling his youth he often played libelo, later he was mainly in central midfield.
In February 1995 (16-year-old), he made debut in a league game against OFK Beograd and became the youngest debutant in Red Star's history.
He played for Yugoslav youth team 21caps and 9goals.

Number 6

Deki's favourite shirt number is 6.
"It began during the qualifiers(EURO 2000). I scored in Dublin wearing 6 and remembered that I also scored wearing 6 in my first match for Lazio, in same stadium, in a pre-season friendly against St Patrick's. Then I thought back and recalled my goals against Korea(his international debut match) and Switzerland."
