Not only for his football talent and style of play, but also for his role in the team and the club as a whole.

We are extremely happy that Kevko will continue to play for us in the years to come. He is a special person and uses his experience to help the team and the younger members of our squad. He is also a leader on the pitch, and his passion for the club, the city and our fans makes him an indispensable link between us all.”
