Djulbic back on board at Perth Glory

Veteran defender Dino Djulbic has returned for a third spell at Perth Glory after inking a deal through to the end of the 2018/19 Hyundai A-League season.

The local product originally joined Perth in 2007 and featured for two campaigns before embarking upon a global football journey that included time in Germany, China and the UAE.

He re-joined Glory in 2014 and spent a further three seasons with the club, with a subsequent stint at Malaysian outfit Felda United followed by a short-term injury-replacement contract at Melbourne Victory earlier this month.

Djulbic won many supporters at Perth with his hard-nosed approach and is thrilled to be back on familiar ground.

“It's fantastic to be back for a third spell at Glory,” he said.

“I have a long history and great connection with the club and have had loads of people welcoming me back which has been great.

“I just can’t wait to get back into it and hopefully do my bit to help drive us into the finals.”

Jacob Burns, the club’s Head of Football, echoed Djulbic’s sentiments.

“Dino is a local WA boy who has been a rock for us in the past and we’re delighted to welcome him back on board,” Burns said.

“He’s a fantastic character on and off the field who will add great leadership and experience to the group.”

Djulbic will wear shirt number 66 and is expected to feature in Sunday’s home clash with Western Sydney Wanderers.
