Real Salt Lake adds Croatian defender Datkovic
Real Salt Lake added defensive depth on Wednesday, signing Croatian international defender Toni Datković.
Datkovic joins from Greek side Aris Thessaloniki and signed a two-year contract with RSL. The 27-year-old has made one appearance for the Croatian National Team and is coming off a loan spell in Spain with FC Cartagena.
Datković started his professional career with Rijeka in 2012, though he played his two seasons there on loan to Pomorac in Croatia’s second division. He also spent two seasons with Zavrć and two seasons with Koper in the Slovenian first division and two seasons with Lokomotiva in the Croatian first division.
While a product of Rijeka’s Academy system, Datković was in the youth system while current RSL midfielder Damir Kreilach captained the club’s first team.
Datkovic has scored 17 goals in his professional career, totaling 219 appearances to date.
