ukic is in his second spell with Arsenal, after completing his second spell at Leeds. He began his career as an associate schoolboy at Elland Road in 1975. After his debut in October 1979, the Chesterfield-born goalkeeper went on to play 146 consecutive games for Leeds, a club record.
In 1983 he moved to Arsenal, where he helped them win the League Cup in 1987 and the League Championship in 1988-89, a season in which he was ever-present. David Seaman's arrival signified the end of Lukic's career at Arsenal, and in 1990 he returned to Leeds in a £1 million deal.
The 1991-92 season was
an imitation of the 1988-89 season for Lukic, as, once
again an ever-present, he helped Leeds to their first
Championship triumph for 18 years. With over 400
appearances for Leeds, Lukic holds the distinction of
being the only post-war goalkeeper to have won the League
title with two different sides.
