Milanovic and Antelmi join Western United ahead of A-League restart


Western United is pleased to announce the signings of Patrick Antelmi and Nicolas Milanovic.

Antelmi, 26, has signed for the remainder of the 2019/20 A-League season.

The Perth-born striker spent several of his junior years in England, with the likes of Portsmouth, Leeds United, Wolverhampton and Wigan Athletic.

Antelmi returned to Australia in 2015, joining NPL New South Wales outfit Blacktown City, before stints at Wollongong Wolves and most recently, Sydney United.

“Patrick has earned his place through his solid performances at NPL level with Sydney United. He will improve our frontline and add depth in the area,” Western United head coach Mark Rudan said.


Milanovic joins Western United on a scholarship contract that will see him wear green and black until at least the end of the 2020/21 season.

The youngster was most recently playing in NPL2 NSW for Western Sydney Wanderers.

“Nicolas has a lot of good qualities that we believe will allow him to develop and improve further at our football club,” Rudan said.


Antelmi and Milanovic are in Sydney with the rest of the squad and will be available for selection for Western United’s remaining A-League fixtures.
