Description:

Antonio Marin signed his first professional contract with Dinamo Zagreb in 2017 at the age of 16. He is regarded as the most talented young player of his generation in Croatia. He made his professional debut for Dinamo on 19 May 2018 in a league fixture against Inter Zapresic. He is also a regular Croatian youth international, having been capped at the U-16 and U-17 levels – he earned over 30 caps so far – which is quite impressive for a 17-year old. It is well known that many European top clubs, including giants AC Milan & AS Roma, have recently shown interest in him, but it seems that it would be best for his development if he could stay in Croatia and play regular first-team football for Dinamo.

 

Quotes:

“Dinamo is my first love, I feel proud after signing a 3-year-contract.”
