Dario Vidosic joined Melbourne City FC in the 2017 January transfer period on a contract that will see him remain at the Club until the conclusion of the 2018/19 season with an option for a further season.
Since arriving at the City Football Academy, the attacking midfielder has wasted little time making his impact felt. City’s late run of form in the season and their strength in the attacking third of the field was partly due to the form of Vidosic. In 26 Hyundai A-League appearances, the midfielder netted nine goals (second most at the Club), registered three assists and created 34 chances, outlining his potency in the attacking third.
The 31-year-old joined City after making 87 appearances in the Hyundai A-League representing Brisbane Roar, Adelaide United, Western Sydney Wanderers and most recently, Wellington Phoenix, scoring 21 times.
Born in Croatia, before moving to Australia in 1988, Vidosic began his footballing career in Queensland before accepting a scholarship to the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). The forward began his professional career in 2006 with Brisbane Roar before heading to Germany with then Bundesliga side 1. FC Nurnberg, returning to Australia in 2011.
