Ljubo Milicevic released by Perth Glory

The nomadic and sometimes controversial defender is on his way again without playing a single competitive game in his second spell at Perth Glory

Just a week out from the start of the new A-League season, Perth Glory have released outspoken defender Ljubo Milicevic.

Milicevic only joined the Glory less than two months ago but is already on his way by 'mutual consent'.

It is understood the 32-year-old is keen to explore opportunities overseas.

"I'd like to thank Ljubo for his services to the club during the past two months," Glory CEO Jason Brewer said.

"It has been decided by mutual consent to allow him to pursue other opportunities.

"On behalf of the club, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish him all the very best for the future."

Milicevic, who played for the Glory in the old NSL, only rejoined the club in August after a successful stint with the Melbourne Knights in the Victorian Premier League.

He was seen as a potentially valuable addition to Alastair Edwards squad, able to offer provide depth and experience to the club's defence.

After leaving the Glory the first time, Milicevic played for Zurich, Basel, Thun and Young Boys Bern in six years in Switzerland before coming back to Australia and the A-League with the Melbourne Victory in 2007.

He only managed two games for the club after a falling out with then-Victory head coach Ernie Merrick and captain Kevin Muscat.

Milicevic then moved to the Newcastle Jets and again found himself in the headlines, slamming Newcastle's then-owner Con Constantine for treating the players like 'amateurs' during their 2009 AFC Asian Champions League campaign.
