In total, Marinović made 100 league appearances in Germany.
In March 2015, Marinović was called up by then All Whites Coach, Anthony Hudson, to appear in a friendly against South Korea. He made a vital save in the game and has since established his first choice status with the International side going on to make 24 appearances including World Cup Qualifiers, International Friendlies, and the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.
After an impressive display at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, Marinović joined Vancouver Whitecaps in the MLS. After making 32 appearances in the season, both the player and club parted ways and the goalkeeper was signed by Bristol City in the EFL Championship for the 2018/19 season.
Having cemented his position as the All Whites Number 1 stopper, Marinovic returned to his home country to sign for Wellington Phoenix in June 2019.
