The news, which delighted Hajduk’s numerous fans, was announced by Hajduk President Lukša Jakobušić in front of the packed stands on Vukovarska Street in Split, where the Torcida Cup is being played, a legendary tournament that has been played in the city for several decades, announced Hajduk.
“Thank you for coming, for following us. You’re probably wondering who’s coming. This transfer window will be a little different. It will be more of a challenge to retain these exceptional people than to bring someone in. Just an hour ago, we signed a five-year contract with Marko Livaja,” said president Lukša Jakobušić.
“Thank you for the great response. I am proud to be part of this team and happy to extend my contract. I hope the next season will be even more successful than the last,” said Marko Livaja from the pitch.
Marko received a well-deserved standing ovation and applause from his teammates, the coaching staff led by coach Valdas Dambrauskas and the audience; in a symbolic place, he showed how much Hajduk means to him, i.e., how much emotion he has towards the club and the fans who show him love and respect every day.
“Numerous well-deserved eulogies have been written about the achievements, statistics, records, moves, and games on the pitch of Hajduk’s #10, and his contribution will indeed remain registered in the history of the Club alongside the greatest greats. On and off the field.
Love and loyalty to your Club and fans cannot be compared to anything. Marko once again showed his greatness and will lead his team on the way to new successes. We wish him many more happy moments. Congratulations!” concluded Hajduk.
The official presentation of Marko Livaja’s contract extension will take place on Friday, July 15 at Poljud starting at 2 pm.
