Mark Viduka

Where is Mark Viduka now?

After a nine-year spell in English football with Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Newcastle United, legendary Australian player Mark Viduka finally hung up his boots at the age of 34 in 2009.

A prolific scorer at every Premier League club he played for, Viduka was most effective during his time at Elland Road scoring 59 goals in 130 appearances.

He also scored a hatful of goals for Melbourne Knights winning the double for the Australian side and also Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb where he won the double in three consecutive seasons.

When he originally moved from Melbourne Knights to Croatia Zagreb in 1995, the transfer fee helped fund the renovation of their stadium and they now have a stand named in honour of their prodigal son.

On the international front he represented the Australia national side on 43 occasions and captained them at the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals.

Regular viewers of Sky One’s Fantasy Football Club show will have seen that most of his ex-Leeds team-mates include him within their line ups of the best players that they have played with.

Danny Mills, Ian Harte and Paul Robinson all included him in their #One2Eleven teams as well as George Boateng who played with Viduka at Middlesbrough.

Since retiring from playing, Viduka has gone back to live in Melbourne in his native Australia and is currently working on obtaining his UEFA coaching badges.
