Ivica Olić made it official Thursday afternoon from Munich. The 32 year-old Croatian striker will be joining 2009 Bundesliga champions Wolfsburg after Euro 2012, ending a three-year stint at Bayern Munich, where he scored 13 Bundesliga goals in 54 appearances. Olić helped Bayern Munich win the Bundesliga title and German Cup in 2010 but will forever be remembered for his heroic injury time goal vs. Manchester United in the 2010 Champions League quarterfinal. Olić was on fire that Champions League campaign, scoring seven times in only 10 matches, including two all-important goal versus Manchester United and a hat trick against Lyon in the semifinal second leg. His luck would eventually run out against Inter in the Champions League Final, as Jose Mourinho’s bus in front of goal was impenetrable.
Olić suffered a season-ending knee injury in late 2010 and never regained his starting spot with Bayern Munich after he recovered. Olić will now team up with fellow Croatian striker Mario Mandžukić at Wolfsburg, signing a two-year deal worth €6 million per season. He was wooed by Italian club Lazio, but did not want to move his family out of Germany.
