A product of Canberra Croatia FC, Ned Zelic started his professional football career in the National Soccer League, where he played for clubs Sydney United and Sydney Olympic. Zelic spent most of the 1990s on the field in Europe, most notably for Germany's Borussia Dortmund, where he reached the UEFA Cup Final in his first season. He successfuly claimed a Bundesliga title in his last season with the club in 1995.

 

Zelic displayed incredible technical ability on the ball, famously scoring for Australia's Olyroos in the final Olympic Games qualification match against the Netherlands on 24 May 1992. He went on to captain Australia, finishing a respectable fourth in Barcelona. Although he did not reach his full potential with the Australian national team, largely due to a fallout with coach Frank Farina, Zelic made 34 appearances between 1991 and 1997.

 

His football journey abroad took him to Germany (Dortmund, Eintracht Frankfurt and TSV 1860 München), England (Queens Park Rangers), France (Auxerre), Japan (Kyoto Purple Sanga and Urawa Reds), Austria (Wacker Tirol), the Netherlands (Helmond Sport) and Georgia (Dinamo Tbilisi). Zelic also played a season in the A-League for the Newcastle United Jets in 2005. 

 

For all his travels, his longest stint at one club was from 1997 to 2001 with TSV 1860 München, where he made a respectable 102 appearances. This design is inspired by Die Löwen's now classic 1997-98 jersey. Zelic was a lion on the football pitch and a perfect fit as a libero for the Munich-based club.
