Club careerEdit

Nicknamed Mlinka, he was part of the Dinamo Zagreb squad that won the 1981–82 Yugoslav First League.[1] He made his debut for them against Osijek on 8 April 1978 and played a total of 530 matches for them, official and unofficial.[2]

In 1987 he was named the Yugoslav Footballer of the Year.

International careerEdit

He made his debut for Yugoslavia in an April 1983 friendly match away against France, coming on as a 46th-minute substitute for Mehmed Baždarević, and earned a total of 17 caps, scoring 1 goal. According to Mlinarić, he disqualified himself for the 1984 European Football Championships because he chose to do his military service that year.[3] His final international was a September 1988 friendly away against Spain. He also played one unofficial game for Croatia, an October 1990 friendly match against the United States,[4] but Croatia was still part of Yugoslavia at the time.
