Damir Šovšić (born 5 February 1990) is a Bosnian-born Croatian football midfielder, who plays for Suwon Samsung Bluewings in the K League Classic, as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Šovšić was signed by NK Zagreb from Bosnian side FK Sarajevo in 2008 and immediately signed a professional contract and joined the Zagreb first team, despite being just 18 years of age. At Zagreb, Šovšić became a vital part of their midfield for many years and after their unexpected relegation from the Croatian First Division in the 2012-13 season, NK Lokomotiva forked out around half a million euro to sign the player and keep him in the 1. HNL. In August 2015, he left Lokomotiva for Dinamo Zagreb. On September 25, 2015, he made a league debut for Dinamo Zagreb against NK Osijek, entering the game as a substitute on the home field.

In February 2017, Šovšić joined Korean side Suwon Samsung Bluewings after terminating his contract with Dinamo Zagreb by mutual consent.
