Zoran Vulić joined Hajduk Split and the stopper with a powerful shot played nine seasons in his first spell, amassing 167 league games with 25 goals. He then had successful abroad stints with RCD Mallorca (Spain) and FC Nantes (France) in the following five years, being instrumental for the former in a La Liga return in his debut season – 35 matches, five goals – and scoring more than ten times overall with both clubs.
