Robert Bajic (born July 29, 1977 in Whyalla, South Australia), is an Australian football (soccer) player of Croatian background. He last played as a goalkeeper for Adelaide United in the A-League.

Club career

Bajic began his career in 1994 with Adelaide Raiders in the SA Premier League. The following year he moved to Queensland to play with Rocklea United FC in the Brisbane league before being promoted in 1998 to the Brisbane Premier League with the Rochedale Rovers. Bajic spent five seasons with Rochdale, but returned to his home state in 2003, re-signing with the Raiders to again play in the SASL. The withdrawal of Adelaide City from the National Soccer League gave Bajic the chance to move into the top Australian league with new club Adelaide United FC for the 2003–04 NSL season. Bajic, however, only played 4 matches that season, finding himself behind incumbent Adelaide City goalkeeper David Scarsella. The collapse of the NSL forced Bajic to move back to the SASL, playing for Enfield City Falcons in 2004, but with the launch of the A-League for 2005–06, Bajic was re-signed with Adelaide United.

Bajic was overlooked for much of the early 2005-06 season in favour of Daniel Beltrame, [cite web| title=Robert Bajic| url=http://soccernet.espn.go.com/players/gamelog?id=68844&cc=3436| work=ESPNsoccernet| accessdate=July 1| accessyear=2006] but made a total of 11 appearances of Adelaide's 27 league matches as they took the inaugural A-League Premiership. With 24 saves and two clean sheets in 2005–06, [cite web| title=Player Statistics – 2005–06 Season| url=http://www.a-league.com.au/default.aspx?s=playerstats&seasonid=2&showdetailstatisticstype=8| accessdate=July 1| accessyear=2006] Bajic will remain with Adelaide United for the 2006–07 season.

In April 2008, Bajic was overlooked by Adelaide United as their was already two other goalkeepers that were currently in the squad (Daniel Betltrame and Eugene Galekovic). This meant that Bajic was realesed from his contract with the club once Adelaide would complete the 2008 Asian champions league group stage
