Roberto Punčec (born 27 October 1991) is a Croatian football player who plays as a defender, currently with Union Berlin. He is a Croatia youth international having earned caps with all of the youth teams beginning with the Croatia under-16 team.[1]
A product of Varteks youth academy, Punčec joined the first team in the 2008–09 season and had his professional debut on 2 November 2008 in a league match against Hajduk Split.[2] He went on to appear in 27 matches for the club in his first two professional seasons with Varaždin.[2]
After filing for arbitration to Croatian Football Federation his contract with Varaždin was terminated due to unpaid wages, and on 31 August 2011, Punčec signed a two-year contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv.[3]
In July 2012, Punčec joined Union Berlin on a season-long loan with the option to buy.[4]
