Bukvić - roles

Domagoj Bukvić is one of the brightest young prospects in NK Osijek, but also in Croatian League in general. Although he also played as a left back in the younger categories, it seems that he has settled on the right wing and that is his position for future. It is also a position that is in short supply in Croatia NT, so by profiling in that position, he could have a bright future at international stage.

Player Scout is a series where we will scout talents from the Football Manager perspective.

Domagoj Bukvić – Basic Informations

  • Age: 19
  • Position: AM RL
  • Nationality: Croatia
  • Club: NK Osijek
  • Foot: Left
  • Wage: 18,25k p/a
  • Price: 2-3 mil €


Domagoj Bukvić is everything you need from a winger. Especially if you consider that he is 19 years old and should be considered as a club project that will return the investment in the long term.

He is primarily very good with the ball in his feet (Dribbling, First Touch, Flair). He is not among the fastest players, but still quick enough that, combined with his technical prowess, he would be a lethal weapon when isolated 1v1 with the opposing defender. At least at the Croatian League level.


In order to be a complete winger, deadly for the opponent’s goal, apart from a little more speed, he also lacks finishing, which is only average. That is certainly his biggest concern. In addition, he should work on concentration and decision-making.

Domagoj Bukvić – Career Simulation

In order to find out what his maximum reach in development is, we simulated Domagoj Bukvić’s career in such a way that we made sure that he was placed in optimal conditions for his development.

So he spent his first season in his childhood club – Osijek, where he played a total of 42 games and scored 9 goals and 11 assists. After that, he went to Werder for two seasons in the Bundesliga. The first season was excellent, and in total he scored 24 goals and 21 assists in 81 games.

Next stop was the English Premier League. There, he played 157 games for Tottenham, scoring 29 goals and providing 46 assists.

In six seasons in simulation, when it comes to trophies, Bukvić has a lot to brag about. With Osijek, he won his first title (and also first trophy in club’s history), and with Tottenham he was the champion of England in all three seasons. In addition, he won the FA Cup and Europa League trophies.

For the national team, he made 9 appearances in these six seasons.


During the simulation, Domagoj Bukvić developed into a winger who will contribute more with assists than goals. This is something that we could also see on his profile at the start of the save. However, with proper development and a focus on finishing, you can fix that and make him a lot better in front of the opponent’s goal.
