Antonio Vojak (19 November 1904, Pula – 1977) was a famous Italian football player whose career was played out during the 1920s and 1930s.

Biography

Vojak was borned in Pula, at that time in Austria-Hungary until 1918 given to Italy and 1947 to Yugoslavia.

Vojak's football career started with Lazio during the 1924–25 season, his stay there was very short; playing only 10 games but scoring 7 goals. This caught the attention of Juventus, who signed up Vojak within that year.

During his three year stay with Turin giants, Vojak was part of a squad which won the Italian Football Championship amasing 46 goals in 102 games, as well as 2 European Cup appearances in 1929 against Slavia Prague.[2]

He moved on next to Napoli where he became an early legend at the club, playing in a squad that featured Attila Sallustro. He stayed with the club until 1935, scoring over 100 goals for them. Vojak also appeared for the Italian national football team once in 1932 where he played midfield. Due to fascist anti-slav laws, he was forced to use the name Vogliani.

After leaving Napoli, Vojak played only two more seasons; first with Genoa and then with in 1936-37 Lucchese-Libertas where he played only 1 game. He died in 1977.
