Written by Alex Holiga for Telesport:

Despite his classic big No 9 build, Bruno Petkovic is nothing like your typical striker, impressing with his wonderful technique and vision. “I like to think outside the box — in football, as in life,” he says. Sometimes that attitude only meant problems for him. By 2018, he had not scored for two years, despite regularly playing in Serie A and Serie B, while in recent years the Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic went public about wanting him in the box and not roaming outside it. Even at Dinamo, they took away his No 10 shirt and replaced it with a No 9 – a clear message. But the stubborn Petkovic never quite obliged, even if that meant being left out from time to time. Also a keen chess player: “Other people play video games on their mobile phones; I play chess. I’m the kind of guy who always likes to think.”
