Former Socceroos and Phoenix playmaker Dario Vidosic has officially been unveiled as Melbourne City’s new signing days before the transfer period opens.
Vidosic has moved on to his fifth A-League club, after walking out on the Wellington Phoenix earlier this month alongside his dad Rado Vidosic.
Vidosic has made 87 appearances over his previous four clubs in the A-League (Brisbane Roar, Adelaide United, Western Sydney Wanderers and Wellington Phoenix), and scored 21 times.

Melbourne City coach Warren Joyce commented on signing Vidosic to the club, saying he has represented the Socceroos, and brings experience to his City outfit.
“Dario is a player who will bring a wealth of experience at this level to our front third. He has represented the Socceroos over 20 times and played at a high level overseas and we are excited to have him join our squad here in Melbourne.”
Vidosic said joining Melbourne City was the easiest decision he has made, and looks forward to contributing to the clubs success both off and on field.
“Melbourne City’s professional environment and the quality of the playing and coaching groups made this an easy decision for me. I am looking forward to contributing to the Club both on and off the field and to showing the City fans what I am capable of.”
Vidosic is the second player City has signed this transfer period, alongside former Cincinnati FC defender Harrison Delbridge who returns home after a stint in the MLS.
