Nedjeljko "Ned" Zelic had an illustrious European club career, most notably for Germany's Borussia Dortmund. In 1993, his first season at the club, he reached the UEFA Cup Final. Playing sweeper in the second-leg, Dortmund lost 6-1 on aggregate. He went on to win the Bundesliga in 1995 and was held in high regard by manager, Ottmar Hitzfeld.
A move to Queens Park Rangers in England proved an unsuccessful season and Zelic returned to Germany, signing for Eintracht Frankfurt. He left for France in 1996 to join Auxerre, replacing Laurent Blanc who had moved to FC Barcelona. Again, he returned to Germany a season later. TSV 1860 Munich was his home for four seasons, where he made 104 appearances.
He then looked to Asia to continue his career before returning to Australia to play in the inaugural A-League season with the Newcastle United Jets. In 2008, Zelic retired, after a short stint in Georgia's Erovnuli Liga with FC Dinamo Tbilisi.
Zelic had been a vital inclusion in the national team setup at youth level and represented Australia at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona - his goal against the Netherlands in qualifying his most notable moment. He participated in two FIFA World Cup qualification campaigns for the Socceroos, missing out at the final hurdle against Argentina in 1993 and Iran in 1997.
This design celebrates Zelic's time at Dortmund, where a rising star made his mark on world football.
