Josip "Beli" Brezovec (born 12 March 1986) is a Croatian professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for NK Polet.
Brezovac was born Varaždin. His home club was NK Nedeljanec but as a 10-year-old Brezovec joined NK Varteks and played there until leaving the junior experience in winter 2004–05.
As a junior, he did not manage to enter into the first team at Varteks, so he returned to his home club Nedeljanec. Then he went to the Austrian Regionalliga (Club St. Michael). After a short time in Austria, he returned in Croatia in the summer of 2006. He signed a contract with the Croatian second division club NK Belišće.
In November 2010, it was announced that Brezovec agreed on terms with Dinamo Zagreb and will be transferred out of NK Varaždin (new name of the Varteks) in the mid-season for undisclosed fee. He signed a four-and-a-half-year contract. However, after playing only nine games for Dinamo by the end of season, Brezovec was signed by Slaven Belupo. In June 2012, Brezovec was signed by HNK Rijeka. With ten assists to his account, he was the league leader in the 2012–13 season. In September 2014, Brezovec was loaned to Spezia Calcio in Italy's Serie B. In January 2016, he returned to Rijeka, where he played for the remainder of the 2015–16 season. On 2 July 2016, it was announced that Brezovec was signed by FC Sheriff Tiraspol for a fee of €250,000.
On 19 November 2018, Brezovec joined Croatian First Football League side Inter Zaprešić.
On 23 June 2019, Brezovec joined Croatian Third Football League side NK Polet.
