Perth Glory defender Dino Djulbic opens up about migrating to Australia after growing up a refugee in Germany.
Speaking with The Four Diegos on FNR_Football Nation Radio the 35-year-old spoke about the football culture which surrounded his family life.
"It's been a passion for me from I think when I was born,
"My dad was a professional football player so it was kind of in the blood," Djulbic said.
Djulbic believes his move to Australia led to him to taking a step back in his career and contributing to his self-proclaimed status as a "late bloomer."
Born in Yugoslavia before finding refuge in Germany, he explained how a new start in Australia profoundly affected him.
"I [thought] my life was ending,
"I was 15 turning 16, and my world just crushed, but I didn't really have a say," Djulbic said.
Djulbic's Perth Glory currently sit one point outside the top six with three matches left in the regular season.
"Every game is a cup final for us now," Djublic said.
