Mateo Pavlović (born 9 June 1990) is a professional footballer who plays as a defender for Ferencváros on loan from SV Werder Bremen and for the Croatia under-21s.

Club career[edit]

NK Zagreb[edit]

Pavlović came through the youth system at NK Zagreb. He made his senior team debut in a 4–0 league defeat to Hajduk Split on 9 November 2008.[1] He was a regular first team player in NK Zagreb's Prva HNL campaigns for the 2008–09, 2009–10 and 2010–11 seasons, and has also participated in the Croatian Cup.[2]

The central defender was a reported transfer target for a number of major European teams. In April 2011, Croatian sports magazine Sportske novosti said that scouts from FC Bayern Munich, SV Werder Bremen, VfB Stuttgart and Zenit St Petersburg had watched him in recent matches.[3] In May 2011, Croatian newspaper 24sata alleged that former French international Christian Karembeu, now a scout, had filmed the player with a view to recommending him to clubs in Le Championnat.[4]

Werder Bremen[edit]

On 17 December 2012, Pavlović transferred to Werder Bremen signing a contract until 30 June 2016.[5] After making just four first team appearances in over over a year, Pavlovic joined Hungarian side Ferencvárosi TC on loan until the end of the 2013-14 season on the 5th of February, 2014.
