Born in Sydney, the versatile and energetic Bozanic, able to play as an attacking midfielder or in a deeper central role, left the Mariners' youth set-up to spend three years with English club Reading between 2007 and 2010. He failed to make first-team appearance at the Royals, going on loan to Woking, Cheltenham Town and Aldershot Town.
He impressed back at Central Coast as the Mariners defeated premiers Western Sydney Wanderers 2-0 in the 2012-13 grand final.
