Manuel ranks as one of the best talents in this position and he is certain to be considered for the Croatian national team sooner or later. Pamic is highly skilled and is really able to create some pressure down the left side.”[3] With the Austrians he played 6 matches in the first half of the year, and another 4 the second. Concluding his Austrian experience with a total of 11 matches, between League and Cup, producing also 2 assists.

He has become a regular call up for the Croatian national team, with whom he took part in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification. However, he has still not had a debut, under coach Slaven Bilić due to minor legal issues with his Manager and the Croatian HNS,[9] Bilić has also called him for a starting team place in a match against Czech Republic in his native Pula where Pamić did not debut due to an injury,[10] and time after under Igor Štimac, who has called up Pamić for much matches in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification,[11] but with Štimac has also can't debut due to still other injuries.
