“HNK Hajduk Split Academy” is a football academy which has always introduced great players to the world, like Darijo Srna, Milan Rapaic, Alen Boksic or Aljosa Asanovic. Josip Basic is another player from the academy who has a chance for the big time. He is being compared to Darijo Srna in Croatia, although he himself picked the right back position over the right wing. He joined “The pride of Dalmatia” youth academy in 2010, aged 13. Having achieved a lot with the U-17 and U-19 teams, he was called up to the first team for the Croatian “Eternal derby” against Dinamo Zagreb on 29 September 2012, starting on the bench, but making his debut by entering for Marko Bencun in the 57th minute. Soon after, he scored his first senior goal in November 2013, against Slaven Belupo. He is also a captain and one of the best players in the Croatia U-17 national team, next to players such as Elvir Maloku, Alen Halilovic, Fran Brodic or Robert Muric, but unfortunately due to an injury he did not make the squad for the FIFA U-17 World Cup, while his team without its talisman got knocked out in the group stage.



“Liverpool made an offer, but BasiC refused to travel to Liverpool, he refused the offer
and decided to stay and prove himself at Hajduk.”
