Filip Benkovic (24) joined Leicester from Dinamo Zagreb back in 2018 for a fee of £13million. He has not yet made his full league debut for this football club and even having a full season under the current manager Brendan Rodgers, winning all major titles there is up there at Celtic and Scotland.

Filip Benkovic was by many seen as a surprise inclusion in the Europa League squad and among the 24 players on that list and we could of course hope that he finally will get his chance and still a very young man and hopefully taking his opportunity.
During a number of loan spells at Bristol City, Cardiff and Leuven he has not really got a chance to shine and of course doing errors that few manager would like to see, the same happened during a few pre-season friendlies and also when playing in the FA Cup and EFL Cup not really impressing.
We do believe that Filip Benkovic is a player that can progress and could have a future at the club, but not always easy to overcome a few situations that puts a mark on you for negative reasons. The former two times Croatian league winner and treble winner in Scotland hopefully will get an oppertunity to turn tings around.
