Club careerEdit

Vučko started his professional career with hometown's Hajduk Split, playing five seasons as an important first-team element. Subsequently, he moved to Spain, joining Deportivo Alavés after the Basque side's European exploits. Rarely used, he did net twice for the club, on 8 April 2001, in a 4–2 home triumph over Real Valladolid.

Staying in the country, Vučko spent a further four seasons playing in its second level, for UD Salamanca and Polideportivo Ejido (returning to Alavés in between), before returning to Hajduk in 2006. His return was short-lived however, as he transferred to Chinese League's Tianjin Teda F.C..

International careerEdit

Vučko made his debut for the Croatia national football team in a 2000 UEFA European Football Championship qualifying match on 10 October 1998, against Malta. He received a further 3 caps.
