Melbourne City FC signs Oliver Bozanic

Melbourne City FC can confirm it has signed midfielder Oliver Bozanic for the remainder of the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 season.

Bozanic, 29, joins City after a recent spell with Japanese outfit Ventforet Kofu.

Head Coach Warren Joyce said; “We’ve brought in Oliver as we believe he will link well with our existing players, offers plenty of finals experience and brings a winning mentality. He has won three trophies in club football in Australia and has tested himself in difficult leagues overseas, represented the country and has a desire to win more silverware, which provides us with an experienced and ambitious player.”

Bozanic said he was delighted to join Melbourne City FC;

“This is an ambitious Club in a familiar city for me, I’m really excited to be back here and can’t wait to play in Melbourne again,” Bozanic said.

“With the team having a break next week, I’m looking forward to settling in, meeting my new teammates and preparing for the final matches of the season, including a huge Melbourne Derby in March.”

After launching his career in the United Kingdom, the energetic and combative midfielder established himself in the A-League with Central Coast Mariners.

With the Gosford-based side, Bozanic won the Premiers Plate and Championship during a successful period for the Mariners between 2010 and 2013.

A spell with FC Luzern in Switzerland followed, before a return to the A-League with Melbourne Victory, where he won the Westfield FFA Cup.

Bozanic has represented Australia at Under-20 and Under-23 level and made 7 appearances for the Socceroos.

The midfielder is available for selection ahead of Saturday night’s Round 20 clash with Sydney FC at AAMI Park.
