Ljubo Milicevic (no.20) in action against Argentina
Former Australian international football defender Ljubo Milicevic has walked away from Croatian football club Hajduk Split with 150,000 euros for playing just 5 matches after settling out of court with the club.
Milicevic signed a 2-year deal worth 120,000 euros a season in 2011, but after just 5 matches with his new club the Australian, who has Croatian roots, got injured and was out for 6 months.
Milicevic fell out of favour with bosses at the Split club and found himself in the reserve side after his comeback as Hajduk tried to reduce his contract. Milicevic never played for the first team again and took the club to arbitration through UEFA. Milicevic was claiming everything that was owed to him but this week the club and Milicevic’s lawyer settled for 150,000 euros which will be paid in installments.
