Ante Kulusic - we haven't found many matches of him yet - is retired internationally and is now a Member of the Croat Parliament for the HDZ (Democratic Union). Kulusic was also a futsal referee.
As an international referee Kulisic didn't get very far. The 4 years he held his FIFA bdge were spend in the lower regions of European football: Kulisic started and ended a category 4 ref.
- Ante Kulusic's son is also a referee who will probably reach the first League in the future. According to our correspondent Croref, almost half of the referees on the list in the first and second league are sons of former referees or of people with other connections in football.
- Kulisic is a MP for the HDZ. Croref told us former referees Maric, Siric, Vucemilovic, Supraha, and Novak are all members of HDZ, and Maric is also an MP.
- Kulisic was accused in a newspaper of being a false war invalid. Invalids of the war get some benefits, the paper alleged that Kulisic just suffered from sport injuries.
- Kulisic is not only a member of Parliament for a party with a lot of referee members, but also a member of the referee commission and a commissioner of referee observers. Being a referee in Croatia must have some benefits.
- Kulisic was a director of an insurance company, even though he only has a college degree. Another reason for a newspaper to cry politics.
- Yes, all this has nothing to do with refereeing and maybe that is why Ante Kulisic took charge of only a few not so important qualifiers for only 4 years.
