He then moved to Portugal and played for two seasons for Estrela Amadora (1996-1998) before ending his career in Spain and CD Leganés (1998-1999).

Velić began his coaching career as assistant manager to Fernando Santos. Their collaboration began at AEK Athens in the 2001-2002 season, and continued at Panathinaikos (2002-2003) and Sporting CP (2003-2004), before they returned for a second spell at AEK Athens (2004-2005).

In the 2006-2007 season, Velić was hired as a scouter for Panathinaikos, but after the sacking of Hans Backe, he briefly served as interim coach for three matches.[1] The next season, Velić was appointed technical director of Panathinaikos.
