Predrag "Pedj" Bojić (born 9 April 1984) is an Australian football (soccer) player who plays for Sydney FC.

Club career[edit]

Bojić's professional career began at Australian club Parramatta Power in the 2000–01 season, where he played for two years. He went to Sydney Olympic and then moved to Northampton in England the following season on a free transfer after a successful trial.[1]

Northampton Town[edit]

Bojić joined the Cobblers at the start of the 2004–05 season, when he became an instant first team player. Thanks to him, Northampton reached the play-off semi-finals, where they were beaten by Southend United. Next season, he and the club had more luck. He made 23 starts and 18 substitute appearances and scored four league goals as the club finished second in the league and won promotion.[2]

In the 2006–07 season, Bojić found the step up to League One easy, making 30 first team appearances. Bojić suffered a hernia injury in January 2007, which kept him out for two to four months and eventually led to the end of his Northampton Town career.

Central Coast Mariners[edit]

On 28 July 2008, Bojić was signed to a one year deal with the Mariners after impressing in several trials.[3] After becoming a first team regular and impressing at the Mariners, Bojić signed a two-year contract extension on 9 October 2008.[4]

Bojić was released by the Central Coast Mariners on 23 May 2013 and was expected to subsequently sign with Sydney FC.[5]

On 20 July 2013, Bojić started for the A-League All Stars in the inaugural A-League All Stars Game against Manchester United, a match in which the A-League All Stars were thrashed 5-1, courtesy of goals from Danny Welbeck, Jesse Lingard and Robin van Persie. Bojić was substituted off in the 45th minute of the match, and was replaced by Perth Glory defender Joshua Risdon.

Sydney FC[edit]

Bojić signed with Sydney FC on a two-year deal on 19 June 2013.[6] He made his first official appearance for the club in Round 1 of the 2013/14 A-League season at home to the Newcastle Jets. Sydney won the game 2-0 with Bojić putting in a strong performance on debut.

Personal[edit]

Aside from playing professional football, Bojić has his own personal training business in Sydney [7] as well as being heavily involved with his clothing brand "A-List Limited". He is of Serbian heritage.
