Tomislav Glumac (born 15 May 1991) is a Croatian football defender, currently playing for Balıkesirspor in the Süper Lig.[1][2]

Club career[edit]

Glumac started his career playing at youth level for his hometown club GOŠK Dubrovnik. At the age of 15 he joined Hajduk Split where he eventually signed a professional five-year contract. In the second part of the 2009–10 season, he was loaned to Zadar to help the team avoid relegation. He was a first-team regular and played in 13 matches that season. He also remained at Zadar the following season and scored his first goal in Prva HNL in a 3–2 defeat to RNK Split.[3][4] In the 2011–12 season, Glumac returned to Hajduk and made his debut for the first team on 21 October 2011 as a late substitute in the 3–0 win against Lučko.[5] A month later, manager Krasimir Balakov announced that Glumac was no longer a part of the first team.[6] On 9 January 2012, it was announced that Glumac was transferred to RNK Split in exchange for Goran Milović, signing a two-and-a-half-year contract.[7]

International career[edit]

Glumac was a part of the Croatian national under-19 team in the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship held in France. Croatia reached semi-finals where they lost 2–1 to hosts but with this achievement they qualified for the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup. Glumac was selected in the 21-man squad by manager Ivica Grnja despite initial objection of Hajduk as they wanted to keep the defender in case of first-team injuries. Croatia finished in the last place in the group, losing all three matches to Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and Guatemala.
