Western United Football Club (WUFC) has today announced that one of football’s brightest talents, Ivan Vujica, has signed with the Club.
Having represented both Australia and Croatia at youth-level, Vujica furthered his Hyundai A-League career by signing a two-year contract with Newcastle Jets, emerging as one of the league’s most promising talents. Recently, the Australian-born Vujica represented Australia in an outstanding Olympic qualifying tournament at left back.
Vujica said while he enjoyed his time in Newcastle, the new role at WUFC was something he was most looking forward to.
“Western United is an exciting prospect for me and it is especially humbling signing with the Club’s rst ever team.
“I am honored the coaching staff have faith in me to run out on the eld next to such a high calibre of Western United players,” Vujica said.
WUFC head coach Mark Rudan said he believed Vujica would be an imperative part of the new team.
“Ivan is an integral element for our defence. He is a pure left footer, and has great quality and athleticism that we were looking for. He’ll certainly strengthen the left side of our playing system.
“Ivan is also a quality young man off the pitch. I’ve monitored him over many years and have been nothing but impressed with his skill and values. As soon as the Club became aware he was available, we went out for him. I’m delighted we have managed to secure him”.
WUFC will join the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 season beginning in October this year.
