Aspropotamitis made his professional debut in March 2015 for the Western Sydney Wanderers with his talent on the pitch securing him his first professional senior contract later that year.

Since his debut in the A-League, he went on to make his Asian Champions League debut and continued to show notable work on the pitch. The young defender joins the Bulls from Perth Glory where he scored the club’s first ever goal in the AFC Asian Champions League making history for the club.

He played in all 3 games, captaining his country, and voted Man of the Match by the AFC in the first match and scoring a goal in the final match.

Jonathan Aspropotamitis is excited to be at the club and is looking forward to work with new Head Coach Dwight Yorke.

“The Bulls are a relatively new club and I’ve been part of new clubs before and there is that exciting feeling about it which I like. With the new coach and some new players, I think the squad is coming together nicely, it’s exciting to be here.

“I’m thrilled we get to get back into things next week at training. I’m feeling refreshed from the off season, it was a tough season for everyone, and I think now we’ve had that break, a lot of the players, including myself will be looking forward to get into training and prepared for upcoming games,” said Aspropotamitis.
