FACTFILE
Jerko Leko
Born: 09/04/80
Club: Dynamo Kiev
Position: Midfielder
Debut: 08/05/02 v Hungary
Jerko Leko has become a regular in the national side since missing out on the World Cup finals in 2002.

The Zagreb-born player is an energetic presence in the Croatia midfield, busy breaking up opponents' attacks.

Since moving from Dinamo Zagreb to Dynamo Kiev in 2002, Leko's performances have attracted the attention of Premiership scouts.

He won a domestic double with Kiev in his first season and has blossomed in the Champions League.

Leko's assets include limitless reserves of stamina and an eye for goal from distance.

He is a threat from around the edge of the box and free-kicks.


Did you know? Leko was man of the match in Dinamo Zagreb's Croatian Cup final win over NK Varteks in 2002.
