Kerala Blasters reward Marko Leskovic with a contract extension – XenBet

Kerala Blasters have announced the contract extension of their star defender Marko Leskovic.

The Croatian will now stay on at the club until 2024 after joining the club from GNK Dinamo Zagreb last season.

The centre-back was one of the pillars of Kerala Blasters’ success last season when they reached the final of the Indian Super League, losing to Hyderabad FC on penalties.

After signing his new contract, Leskovic spoke to Kerala Blasters’ official website and said, “I’m excited to continue my stay with Kerala Blasters. We reached so far into the game last season, this season’s motive would be to win that cup under the guidance of our Head Coach.”

The club’s sporting director Karolis Skinkys added, “I’m happy we reached an agreement with Marko. He is one of the best players around the league and it’s great that we were able to keep consistency and extend his stay in Kerala for at least the next two years.”

Kerala Blasters head coach Ivan Vukomanovic concluded by stating, “We are very pleased with Marko’s extension. He proved that he is one of the best defenders in ISL. Not only his statistics but his commitment and professionalism are great examples for everyone.

“We are very glad that he will continue with us. With the consistency and leadership he has, he will help improve young players and play better himself.  His experience and human qualities will bring many important things to our squad. It is good to have him as part of KBFC.”
