A talented and agile shot-stopper, Dean Bouzanis provides Melbourne City FC with another reliable option between the posts.

Once rated by former Real Madrid boss Rafael Benitez as ‘the best goalkeeper in the world for his age’, Bouzanis commenced his career in Sydney at the New South Wales Institute of Sport (NSWIS) before earning a youth contract with English Premier League outfit Liverpool, where he featured for the under-18s and reserves side. 

The talented ‘keeper then enjoyed spells with Accrington Stanley, Oldham Athletic and Carlisle United before returning to Australia in 2014, signing with the Wanderers.

Bouzanis will replace the outgoing Tando Velaphi at Melbourne City FC and will wear the number 20 jersey.
