From NK Celje comes experienced footballer Lovro Cvek
Croatian defensive midfielder Lovro Cvek has become our next summer signing.
Another football player who will strengthen our club in the summer season is Lovro Cvek. Croatian football player comes from Slovenian team in top competition - NK Celje. A native of Varaždin, who only recently celebrated his 24th birthday, he signed a two-year contract with our club, followed by an option for another year.
"I am very happy and proud to be part of this team. The first feelings are great. After meeting with everyone in the club, I believe this is the right decision for me," Lovro Cvek said. Other circumstances made it easier for him to decide on the offer from Senica: "I have many friends in Slovakia, I was lucky that my good friend Filip Dangubic spent the last half year here. He only told me the best about the club. I also know Mihovil Klapan what made my decision even easier."
Defensive midfielder spent the last five years in Slovenia, in the DNŠ Zavrč, NK Aluminij and NK Celje teams, has always been a stable part of the starting lineup. In the last season he played 35 league games in NK Celje, contributing to the fifth place in the league table. NK Celje was behind only three points from the fourth place guaranteeing participation in the European league. "After five years in Slovenia, I decided to try a better league. The Slovak League is a step forward for me," Croat explained.
Croatian footballer started his professional career in NK Varaždin, in the past he dressed twice for his national team jersey U20. "I prefer to play as a defensive midfielder. I like it when I can help attack and control the game from that position," Lovro Cvek added.
