Football career

After playing his first four years of professional football in Australia, Krnčević moved to the land of his parents in 1981, joining NK Dinamo Zagreb, where he had relative individual success, besides helping the side win one league and one cup.

Krnčević then played four months in the German second division with MSV Duisburg, after which he embarked on his most successful spell, ten years 1/2 years in Belgium (only interspersed with a small loan back in Australia with Marconi Stallions Football Club and a season in France with FC Mulhouse) where he represented Cercle Brugge KSV, Royal Charleroi, R.S.C. Anderlecht, R.F.C. de Liège and K.S.C. Eendracht Aalst.

Even though silverware was hard to come even at Anderlecht, in 1988–89, Krnčević was crowned the league's top scorer at 23 goals, and helped the capital side to the domestic cup. In 1996, already at 36, he returned to his country and played one final season with Gippsland Falcons.

In the late 90's/2000's, Krnčević had a coaching career, with all the clubs hailing from his homeland, in the National Soccer League. Internationally, he opted to represent his birth country, scoring every other match in 35 caps, and helping the country to the 1980 OFC Nations Cup.
