Description:

Lovro Majer started out playing football at Dinamo Zagreb, however, at age 12, he left their academy. In 2013 he joined NK Lokomotiva Zagreb youth system. Currently, he’s one of the rising stars of Croatian league, playing for Lokomotiv, who boldly go with youngsters, and where multiple talented players, such as Luka Ivanušec, Endri Cekici, Ivan Šunjić, Fran Karačić and Eros Grezda, get their chances to shine. It’s possible that Lovro will follow in the footsteps of the current Juventus player Marko Pjaca, who left Dinamo at a young age, has grown his skills at Lokomotiv, and went back to the most winning Croatian club for a hefty sum.
