Born in the former Yugoslavia in 1968, Bozovic started playing in Buducnost Titograd (now Podgorica). After more than 100 games, he signed for Serbian side Red Star Belgrade. Here, the "Grof" (as he has been nicknamed in Serbia) won a Yugoslav Cup and a silver medal. Two years later he flew first in Indonesia and then in Cyprus. In 1997 he signed for Dutch club RKC Waalwijk, while in 1998 he had an experience in Japan. He retired from football in 1999, playing for RBC Roosendaal in Nederland. He played also one game for youth Yugoslav Team.

As coach, after minor adventures, he earned a silver medal in 2006-2007 season with his former club Buducnost. Some months later he left them due to a disagreement with the board. In 2008 he arrived in Russia, exactly in Perm'. Thanks to him, Amkar reached the final of Kubok Rossii (which was lost against CSKA), which permitted to qualify in the Europa League. A season later, he signed for FC Moscow. In the capital city of Russia, the "Grof" confirmed his value, arriving 6th. Although this important result, Bozovic had to leave the club due to FC Moscow's financial problems. On April 27th 2010 he was nominated the Head Coach of Dinamo Moscow. He arrived 7th at the end of the season. A year later he was fired after a mediocre start of the season and a defeat in Kubok Rossii against Rostov (2:1). In September he became again the Amkar's coach. On June 11st 2012 he signed for Rostov, where he won a Kubok Rossii in 2013-2014 season against Krasnodar after the penalties. After 8 games of the new season, the eliminations in Europa League and Kubok Rossii he resigned from Rostov. In October he returned in Moscow, signing a contract for Lokomotiv. Some curiosities: he speaks fluently Russian, he's one of the highest coach in the world (1.96cm), he dreams to coach Red Star Belgrade. He left Moscow in May 2015.
