Brought in to strengthen Locomotive’s defense, fans should look forward to Pavkovics when he walks out on the field for 2023.
The 25-year-old Hungarian joins Locomotive after four years of playing at the top level of Hungarian football with Debreceni VSC. He was a key figure in the Hungarian side’s backline in both its Europa League qualifying campaign in 2019 and a semi-final finish in the Magyar Kupa (Hungary’s annual cup competition open to all clubs across the country), as well as a successful turnaround in Hungary’s second tier in 2021 to regain top level status after having been relegated in 2020.
In all competitions with Debreceni, Pavkovics made 118 appearances, scored seven goals and assisted three.
Prior to Debreceni, he played with Ujpest FC from 2015-18, making 43 appearances for the club and was a member of the 2017/18 squad that brought home the Magyar Kupa.
