Sat 24 July 2021 | 19:29

Here you would go through an engaging ride through some of the most impressive top facts about Filip Kostic; so without further ado, let's buckle up for the long ride ahead.

Filip Kostić is a Serbian professional footballer who currently plays for German club Eintracht Frankfurt and the Serbia national team.

His most frequent playing position is left winger, while in the field he is assigned to jersey number 10 as a competent player who possess good speed and vision in the game.

During his football career, he played for FK Radnicki Kragujevac from 2004-2012, for FC Groningen from 2012-2014, for VfB Stuttgart from 2014-2016, for

Hamburger SV

from 2016-2018 and has joined Eintracht Frankfurt since 2018.

During his spell at VfB Stuttgart and then Hamburg, his performance was so much sparkling that he racked up 17 goals and 20 assists across 128 games with them. Why VfB Stuttgart and then Hamburg let Kostic go is still a mystery.

Even though he is not a headline footballer, he is arguably one of the most prominent performers in the brilliant Eintracht Frankfurt side. While his previous teammate, 

Andre Silva

has fairly received huge plaudits for his dazzling performances which include 28 goals in 2021 season, nearly a third of his exploits would not have been persumable without Kostić.

Kostic current deal runs until the summer of 2023, as it implies that other clubs may become interested in him this summer – quite understandably so too – but conventional wisdom would expect him to stay given Frankfurt’s success (as they would likely bring Champions League football to the Waldstadion next season) and his indispensable role in it. In either case, it’s about time that the world football starts giving Kostić due recognition he deserves.
