Petrovic comes to El Paso after two years with Trelleborgs FF in the Superettan – Sweden’s second division – where he contributed nine goals and five assists in 27 appearances across all competitions. Petrovic was also a key figure in the 2021 Trelleborg squad that finished seventh in the Superettan after the club had managed to survive relegation the year before.
His performances caught the eye of Locomotive head coach Brian Clarhaut, who at the time was the assistant coach for a GIF Sundsvall side that clinched promotion from the Superettan to the 2022 Allsvenskan, the top division in Sweden.
Now under Clarhaut’s system of play, Petrovic will be a dynamic threat on the wing capable of unlocking opponents and continuously being a threat on goal.
