Official: Celta sign ‘mini Modric’

Celta Vigo have announced the signing of Slovakian midfielder Stanislav Lobotka, dubbed ‘the mini Luka Modric’.

Lobotka has put pen to paper on a five-year contract with Celta and becomes their second summer capture after striker Maxi Gomez.

The 22-year-old was an ever-present for Slovakia during the recent European Under-21 Championship and has spent the last two seasons with Danish outfit Nordsjaelland.

AS also claims Lobotka is known as ‘mini Modric’ due to his similar frame and playing style to the Real Madrid star.
