Marko Lešković (Croatian pronunciation: [mâːrko lěʃkoʋitɕ];[1][2] born 27 April 1991) is a Croatian footballer, currently playing for Dinamo Zagreb in the Croatian First Football League.

Club career[edit]

Lešković started his career playing at youth level for Osijek, with whom he signed a professional contract in December 2009.

In the first part of the 2010–11 season he was loaned to Druga HNL side Suhopolje where he was featured in 14 games scoring four times.

He returned to Osijek after the winter break and made his debut for the first team as a late substitute in the 2–1 win against Istra 1961 on 5 March 2011. He made one further appearance that season[3][4][5] In the 2011-12 season, Lešković was much more involved in the first team, making eight starts and eleven appearances off the bench. He scored his first goal in Prva HNL in a 2–2 draw with NK Zagreb on 20 March 2012.[6]

In the 2012-13 season, Marko truly broke out as a player. He made 35 appearances for Osijek, playing in a range of positions including LB, CB and DM. He also scored four goals in the league as his side finished in 8th position.

In the summer of 2013, Lešković finalised a transfer to HNK Rijeka, signing a four-year contract. Lešković managed 25 appearances in his first season. The following season, Marko made 41 appearances as Rijeka qualified for the group stages of the Europa League and finished runners up in the 1. HNL.

In July 2016, after three seasons with Rijeka, Lešković was transferred to Dinamo Zagreb.[7]
