Denis Vavro returns to FCK
F.C. Copenhagen have agreed a loan deal for S.S. Lazio defender Denis Vavro, who returns to FCK on a deal until the summer of 2022 with an option to buy.
Vavro played at F.C. Copenhagen from the summer of 2017 to the summer of 2019, when he was sold to Lazio.
From there he has been loaned out to the Spanish La Liga club Huesca, before returning to Rome in the summer of 2021. Now Vavro can once again call himself an FCK player and will wear shirt No 3.
"I think everyone who has followed the Superliga knows Denis' qualities, and it was not surprising that Lazio paid a lot for him," says FCK sporting director Peter Christiansen.
"He is a combative, strong, fast and uncompromising defender, while his technical skills are also really solid. With the arrival of Denis, we have secured a quality player who knows the club, the city and the fans intimately, which makes integration easier.
"Denis himself has shown a great desire to return to Copenhagen, and we know that he is passionate about winning matches with FCK, so we are happy with the agreement with him."
Vavro, 25, says he is looking forward to playing in front of the Parken fans once again.
"F.C. Copenhagen means a lot to me," says the Slovakian.
"I had a great time here in my first period at the club and I'm really looking forward to playing in Parken again and getting back to life at the club.
"I have kept in touch with many of the players and staff here, which I look forward to seeing them again every day. I arrive with one goal and that is to help FCK become champions this summer. I will give 100 percent to achieve this."
For FCK head coach Jess Thorup, the arrival of Vavro is a welcome addition to the squad.
"Our defence was really strong in the autumn, where we conceded very few goals in both the league and Europe, but we have to be even better and also further develop that aspect of our game as well," says Thorup.
"Here we need to have quality and high competition in all positions, and Denis will definitely give us a boost.
"He is really good one on one, strong in the air and has a distinct winning mentality, which fits well in a club like ours. We are very much looking forward to getting him back in the white jersey."
Vavro has joined the squad and will train with his FCK teammates from tomorrow.
