Born in Ljubljana present day Slovenia by Serbian parents, young Milenko started his career in the youth ranks of Olimpija Ljubljana. As an extremely gifted youngster, he made three first-team appearances for Zeleznicar when he was just 17 years old. From 1996 until 1998 he found himself again playing for Olimpija, scoring 7 goals in 34 matches. He then joined Crvena Zvezda. He had very good passing abilities, especially crossing, and good shot.

Milenko played in Belgrade for four and a half years. He developed into quite a dependable midfielder. After successful appearances for Slovenian national team in Euro 2000 and World Cup 2002, many bigger European clubs expressed interest in him. In the summer of 2002, he joined Tottenham Hotspur. In his first season in London, he made a few appearances, but never established himself as a first team player. In his second season, he became a fringe player.

In January 2004 he joined the French club Lille on loan until the end of the season. When he arrived, the club was in 14th place in the Ligue 1, but after some good form and fine performances by Acimovic they finished the season as runners up and therefore qualified for the Champions League. In the first year they also played in the UEFA Cup and were eliminated in the last 16. They played in the third qualifying round of the Champions League, and successfully reached the group stages. Mile was Lille's creative spark and scored against Manchester United when Lille won the game in Paris 1-0. That was Lille's only goal of the campaign.

After playing for Lille in France for 2 and a half seasons he fell out of favor and surprisingly joined Al-Ittihad for the 2006-07 season. After failing to adapt to life in Saudi Arabia, he agreed on a mutual termination of the contract, subsequently moving back to Europe to join Austria Wien, the giants from Vienna. On 15 September 2010, Austria Vienna midfielder Milenko Acimovic ended his football career following a persistent right knee injury.

Ačimovič returned to Slovenia and has been appointed the Director of football at Olimpija Ljubljana in the January of 2011. When he started with his job in the club, the team gained 6 positions in the championship. They are still undefeated in 2011, with 7 wins and 4 draws.

He debuted for the Slovenia national team on 22 April 1998 in Murska Sobota against the Czech Republic. He gave many notable performances for the national team, including a spectacular goal scored from the middle of the field against Ukraine in the Euro 2000 play-off. He represented Slovenia at both Euro 2000 and World Cup 2002, scoring in their 1-3 defeat to Paraguay in Seogwipo. His final appearance for the national side came on 28 March 2007 in Celje, during a 1-0 home defeat to the Netherlands in a Euro 2008 qualification match. He announced his retirement from international football that August.
