RSL center back Toni Datkovic signs with FC Cartagena

There is an old saying in the business of silly season: Sometimes, you don’t need rumors. You just need news. And by “an old saying,” I mean, that’s what I wrote just now. It’s true, though. There were no real rumors about Toni Datkovic going back to FC Cartagena in the last few weeks. Not that I’d seen, at least, and I’ve been paying attention. I think we all just assumed it was going to happen, which is a slightly different but importantly similar thing.

Toni Datković Has An Attribute Very Few Real Salt Lake Center Backs Have Had Before

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Newly signed Croatian center back Toni Datković has an attribute that very few center backs for Real Salt Lake have had before, he is left-footed. Now, most soccer fans will likely tell you that the preferred foot of a center-back does not mean anything. Take Nedum Onuoha as an example, Onuoha was a right-footed center back who played alongside other right-footed center backs in Justen Glad or Marcelo Silva and the duo did just fine. Onuoha played at the left-center back position which also solidifies that the preferred foot of a center back is not pivotal.

Real Salt Lake Signs Croatian Center Back Toni Datković

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Salt Lake has bolstered its center-back depth with the signing of Toni Datković, the club announced. Datković, 27, fills a need for RSL as he will add much-needed depth to the position. Currently, RSL’s starting center backs are Justen Glad and Marcelo Silva. Erik Holt is the backup for when an injury hits or tired legs creep in. Datković will compete for a starting role but his signing now allows Manager Freddy Juarez to rest his center backs when he feels the need to do so. Prior, Juarez did not have that luxury.
