Degenek represented both Serbia and Australia at youth levels before making his senior international debut for Australia against England in 2016.

Early life[edit]

Degenek was born in 1994 in Knin, which at that time was the capital of the Republic of Serbian Krajina. His family was part of the Serb population of Croatia and fled the Croatian War of Independence to Yugoslav and Serbian capital Belgrade in 1995 during Operation Storm, where they lived as refugees in poverty and were subject to NATO airstrikes during the Kosovo War in 1999.[7] A year later, he and his parents migrated to Sydney, Australia.[8]

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Degenek with Stuttgart in 2013

Degenek played for the Westfields Sports High School and the Australian Institute of Sport.[9] In the summer of 2012, he joined the under-19 team of VfB Stuttgart.[10][11] Upon joining the club, Degenek admitted that he "had no communication from anyone from the Young Socceroos or under 20s."[10]

In November 2012, Degenek was called up to the first team for the first time by manager Bruno Labbadia.[12] Although he was never called up again to the senior team, Degenek spent the rest of the 2012–13 season, playing for the U19 side.[13]

Miloš Degenek made his first appearance for VfB Stuttgart II on 26 July 2013 in the 3. Liga against SV Darmstadt 98.[14] However, Degenek made only 9 appearances in the 2013–14 season, due to being sidelined with injuries.[15] He continued to be sidelined for most of the 2014–15 season, and as a result would not make a single appearance that season.[16] At the end of the 2014–15 season, Degenek was among expected to leave the side.[17]

TSV 1860 Munich[edit]

At the start of the 2015–16 season, Degenek signed a two-year contract with 2. Bundesliga club 1860 Munich.[18][19]

Degenek made his TSV 1860 Munich debut in the opening game of the season, where he started the whole game, in a 1–0 loss against 1. FC Heidenheim.[20] Since making his TSV 1860 Munich debut, Degenek established himself in the starting eleven, playing in the defensive midfield.[21] It wasn’t until on 19 September 2015 when he scored his first goal for the club, in a 1–1 draw against 1. FC Kaiserslautern.[22] He started in every match since the start of the season until he was suspended for one game over picking five yellow cards in mid–October.[23] After that, he quickly regained his first team place later in the season despite facing competitions that saw him placed on the substitute bench.[24] Despite being suspended on two occasions, including a second bookable offence, in a 2–1 loss against MSV Duisburg on 15 April 2016,[25] Degenek went on to make 28 appearances and scoring once in all competitions at his first season at TSV 1860 Munich.

In the 2016–17 season, Degenek changed position when he moved into the central–defence at the start of the season.[26] He started in every matches since the start of the season until he ruptured intraarticular ligament initiation in knee and had to be substituted in a 2–2 draw against FC St. Pauli on 22 September 2016.[27] After returning to the side that saw TSV 1860 Munich win 6–2 against Erzgebirge Aue, Degenek, however, struggled to regain his first team place for the rest of the year.[28]

Yokohama F. Marinos[edit]

On 26 January 2017, Degenek left 1860 Munich four months before the end of his contract and joined Japanese club Yokohama F. Marinos.[29] It was reported that an undisclosed Chinese Super League club agreed to sign him.[30] Degenek later reflected on his departure, saying that he needed to leave in order to keep his international status alive.[31]

Degenek made his Yokohama F. Marinos debut in the opening game of the season, against Urawa Red Diamonds on 25 February 2017.[32] Since making his Yokohama F.

For his performance, he was named in the J.League Young Players' Best XI.[37]

Ahead of the 2018 season, the club saw a change of new management, as Ange Postecoglou was appointed as new manager, who first called him up for the senior team.[38] Degenek also signed a new contract with the club as well.[39] At the start of the 2018 season, Degenek continued to establish himself in the starting eleven, playing in the centre-back position.[40] He then scored his first goal for the club, in a 4-4 draw against Shonan Bellmare on 21 April 2018.[41] A month later, on 16 May 2018, he scored again in the J.League Cup Group Stage, in a 2-1 win over Albirex Niigata.[42] Three days later, on 19 May 2018, Degenek scored his third goal of the season, in a 5-2 win over V-Varen Nagasaki, in what turns out to be his last appearance for Yokohama F. Marinos.[43] He went on to make 15 appearances and scoring 3 times for the side in all competitions.

On 11 October 2012, Degenek made his debut for the Serbia national under-19 team against Turkey.[58] Although he represented the U19 side, Degenek reflected on his switch, quoting: "I represented Serbia under 19s in eight games at a time where I was unsure of whether I was wanted in the Australian national set-up. But two years ago I was given the opportunity to represent the Olyroos and, later, the Socceroos. I knew that’s what I wanted to do. "[59] Degenek went on to make eight appearances for the side.

On 26 August 2015, Degenek was called up to the Olyroos squad against Turkey and FYR Macedonia.[60] He made his Olyroos'U23 debut on 4 September 2015, where he started the whole game, in a 1-0 win over Turkey.[61]

Senior career[edit]

Degenek made his Australia national football team debut against England on 27 May 2016, coming on as a second-half substitute. He set up Australia's only goal in a 2–1 loss, his cross from the right forcing English defender Eric Dier to head into his own goal.[62] He made his first start a week later, playing a full match in a win over Greece.[63]

Degenek then received a lot of playing time under the management of Ange Postecoglou.[64] On 31 May 2017, it was announced that Degenek made it to the final cut for the FIFA Confederations Cup squad.[65] Degenek played two times in the tournament, which were against Germany and Cameroon.[66] However, he was dropped to the substitute bench on the last game of the group stage, as they drew 1–1 against Chile.[67]

Degenek continued to feature in the AFC Fourth Round against Syria, where he played both legs, in a 3–1 win on aggregate to qualify for the CONCACAF–AFC play-off against Honduras.[68] In the CONCACAF–AFC play-off, Degenek played once in the first leg, as Australia won 3–1 to qualify for the World Cup.[69]

In May 2018 he was named in Australia’s 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[70] However, Degenek did not play all three matches in the Group Stage, as he appeared as an unused substitute and Australia were eventually eliminated from the tournament.[71]
