Marko Mlinarić was born on 1st of September, 1960 in Zagreb. Our Mlinarić, a fans favourite and midfield wizard of extraordinary skills. Strong legs, control of the ball, vision and feel for the game made him one of the best ever midfielders in Dinamo history.

It was often said: 'You can't take the ball off Mlinka. Only if he let you.' Mlinarić started in Dinamo youth in the mid 1970s and progressed to be a regular first team member and Yugoslavia Cup (1980, 1983) & Championship (1982) winner in the early 1980s.
Mlinarić also finished as runners up in Yugoslavian first league (1979) and once third (1983). Also Mlinarić was member of Dinamo squad that was 3 times runners up in Yugoslavian Cup (1982, 1985, and 1986).

First game for Dinamo, Mlinarić played in Osijek (Osijek - Dinamo 1:0, 08.04. 1978.) and his last was in Moscow in UEFA Cup (Spartak - Dinamo 2:0, 20.08. 1996.). In 9 years that he played in Dinamo, Mlinarić scored 174 goals (10th in ranking of best scorers in Dinamo) and recorded 613 (2nd place in players with most caps in Dinamo) matches for Dinamo. As a youngster Mlinarić was a member of Yugoslavia U-21 Squad at World Youth Championship in Japan 1979, playing in all 3 games scoring one goal (in 73rd min. vs Indonesia, 5:0). Often overlooked for senior Yugoslavia team Mlinarić collected only 17 matches in 6 years span (1983-88) scoring 1 goal. Mlinarić missed out on Yugoslavia 1982 World Cup Squad even after being named 1982., Yugoslavian League Player of the Year, in 1984. He was not selected for Yugoslavia Euro 1984 Squad even after playing well in a crucial qualifier vs. Bulgaria (3:2, 21.12.1983. in Split).

After spending 9 years in Dinamo (1978-87) and playing well over 500 of total 613 games, Mlinarić went to France to play for AJ Auxerre (1987-89, 47 games, 6 goals ) and AS Cannes (1989-91, 48 games, 5 goals). Upon returning from France to Croatia he played for HNK Segesta Sisak (1991-95). His second spell at the Club was a great one too, coming back to Maksimir stadium in 1995/96 season to lead 'Blue Boys' to a League and Cup double. But he was expelled from Dinamo (than Croatia Zagreb) because he was “too often drunk after nights in discos). A brilliant farewell for Dinamo legend at the age of 36, after 613 games played and 174 goals scored. In 1987, Mlinarić was pronounced 'Večernji List Player of the year'. Also Mlinarić played for Croatian national football team in 1 game against USA (2:1, 17.10.1990.), that was first after Croatian independence. Later, after player career, he was involved as a coach in Dinamo set up from 1997.
