Club career


After graduating from the Australian Institute of Sport Football Program, Bosnar began his professional career in 1997 with Newcastle Breakers. After staying in Australia for a few seasons with Northern Spirit and Sydney United, Bosnar moved to Croatia in 2000 to play with Dinamo Zagreb. After three years in Austria with Sturm Graz, Bosnar moved to England to play with Everton, but he failed to make an appearance in the Premier League for Everton, and he was released after one season due to injury. Bosnar then returned to old club Dinamo Zagreb, before briefly playing with Rijeka. Bosnar moved to the Netherlands in 2006 to spend two seasons with Heracles Almelo, before moving to Japan in 2008 with JEF United Chiba. He moved to Shimizu S-Pulse in 2010. Bosnar left Japan at the end of that season and joined Suwon Samsung Bluewings in the K-League. His free kick against Ulsan Hyundai in May 2012, measured at 123 km/h (76 mph), was chosen unofficial K-League goal of the year for 2012. On 18 July 2013, Bosnar transferred to Chinese Super League side Guangzhou R&F.
