Defender Ivan Vujica
- Height 180cm
- Weight 83kg
- D.O.B. 20/4/97
A versatile player who can ply his trade right across the backline, but favours the left-hand side, Ivan Vujica is one youngster on the rise at Newcastle.
A Croatia under-19 representative, Vujica added to the club’s Croatian contingent back in 2016 and is actually family to one former Jets midfielder, Mateo Poljak – Vujica’s brother-in-law.
Without a goal in his two seasons so far with Newcastle, the highlight of his time in the Hunter so far would be his strong performances to open the 2017/18 season where he held down a starting spot for the opening 10 rounds before being struck down with illness.
Vujica’s professional debut was for the Newcastle Jets, coming off the bench in a 1-1 draw with Adelaide on 9 October 2016.
