Marko Livaja returns to Poljud! The experienced 27-year-old striker returned to the Split club after 11 years and signed a contract with Hajduk until the end of the current season after terminating his contract with the Greek first league team AEK.
After many years, Marko will fulfill his great wish and boyhood dream to play an official match for Hajduk’s first team. He made six appearances for Hajduk, but all in friendly matches.
In 2010, as a sixteen-year-old, he left Hajduk for Inter Milan, where he played 13 official matches and scored four goals.
In the meantime, he played for Swiss Lugano, Italian clubs Cesena, Atalanta, Empoli, Russian Rubin Kazan, Spanish Las Palmas, and Greek club AEK from Athens, for which he played for the past two seasons and collected 147 official appearances with 42 goals scored.
Livaja played for all the younger selections of the Croatia national team, while he made a total of four appearances for the first team.
“I am happy to be back home after so much time, and I am looking forward to new opportunities and challenges here. I am glad that I will try to achieve goals with my beloved club, and I hope for better results,” said Marko after signing for Hajduk.
“Marko, welcome back to Hajduk, and we wish you good luck and success in the white jersey!” Hajduk concluded in its official announcement.
