Goran Tomic, Lokomotiv Zagreb coach, assured Index about the finish line: "I don't know anything yet, I have to talk to the manager. But if that's really the case, I'm sure Ivo is worth signing. for such a big club because he is currently our best goalkeeper together with Livakovic. We will try to manage him. We have some solutions to arrange his departure. "

With the Zagreb team he has played 74 games in which he has conceded 79 goals and has left a clean sheet in 22 games.
