The Central Coast Mariners have continued their roster revamp and added more experience by signing Serbian midfielder Milan Duric for the 2019-20 season.
Duric has plied his trade in Macedonia, Poland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Azerbaijan and Serbia, where he has played most recently for FK Vojvodina.
The 31-year-old Duric, who trained with Central Coast on Thursday, was spotted in Serbia by Mariners' coach Alen Stajic on a scouting mission.
"He is a natural leader and captained Vojvodina last season, one of the bigger clubs of Serbian football," Stajcic said.
"This signing is another example of bringing a strong core of experience and leadership to the club and Milan is a role model that our younger players will learn from."
Last week, Mariners signed two other vastly experienced players in goalkeeper Mark Birighitti and South Korean midfielder Kim Eun-Sun.
