Alen Boksic

Where is Alen Boksic now?

Former Middlesbrough striker Alen Boksic retired from playing in 2003 at the age of just 33 after an injury-ravaged time at the Riverside.

Playing professionally for 16 years he made 429 first team appearances for six sides including spells in France and Italy and won a number of trophies including the UEFA Champions League with Marseille and Serie A titles with both Juventus and Lazio.

It was a surprise to many when he signed for Boro and a major coup for the club but he justified his price and wages and won the supporter’s player of the year award for the season 2000-01.

He also represented the Croatia national side on 40 occasions and represented his country in the 1996 UEFA European Championships as well as the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals.

Upon retiring from playing he returned to Croatia and spent time as assistant manager of the national side between 2012 and 2013 but hasn’t coached anywhere else since.
