Vedran Janjetović (born 20 August 1987) is a Croatian born footballer, currently playing for Sydney FC in the A-League.

Early Career

Janjetović started his career in the youth ranks at NSWPL club Sydney United before being spotted by Sydney FC and was signed to their Youth League squad alongside fellow young starlets Matthew Jurman, Kofi Danning, Rhyan Grant and Anthony Golec. The Sky Blues juniors were a class above that season and resulted in the inaugural title going to Sydney FC, with Vedran making a significant impression.[1]

In 2010, he would return to Sydney United being too old to be eligible for a spot in Sydney FC's youth team and was not offered a senior team contract at the club due to an onging neurological issue in his right arm which forced him into an extended period on the sidelines.[2] Later that year, Janjetović was loaned out to fellow A-League club Brisbane Roar as injury cover for Griffin McMaster as regular custodian Liam Reddy was out injured,[3] however did not make an appearance for the Roar in his time at the club.

Sydney FC

On 18 June 2012, it was announced that Janjetović had signed a 2-year deal with Sydney FC to bolster their goalkeeping ranks.[4] Janjetović trialled for a number of weeks at the club against former Gold Coast United goalkeeper Jerrad Tyson, QPR youth goalkeeper Aaron Lennox and Sutherland goalkeeper Nathan Denham. He eventually won out, impressing Sydney FC's goalkeeping coach Zeljko Kalac and manager Ian Crook. Janjetović was also in talks with the club's new inter-city rivals Western Sydney FC during his trial at Sydney FC but chose to sign with the Sky Blues, stating that his decision came down to the calibre of goalkeeping coach at the club as well as Sydney FC's interest and desire to have him in their squad.[5] He he will compete with Ivan Necevski for the club's number one goalkeeping position after the sacking of former Sydney FC goalkeeper Liam Reddy for what the club labelled as "serious misconduct" earlier in the year.
