Aberdeen legend delighted Dons midfielder Dante Polvara has won over the doubters

Aberdeen legend Bobby Clark is pleased Dante Polvara has won over the Dons support.

Clark recommended Polvara to the Dons with the American making the move to Pittodrie in January 2022.

The midfielder was playing for Georgetown University who were coached by Brian Wiese, Clark’s assistant for many years at Notre Dame and Stanford University.

Polvara’s days at the Dons looked numbered when he returned to America to spend time on loan at Charleston Battery last year.

But the 23-year-old has impressed since returning in a breakthrough season with the Dons, which included four goals in 40 appearances.

In September last year, Polvara netted in an away match against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa Conference League and, later that month, he signed a new three-year deal with the Dons.

Clark was thrilled to see Polvara impress, especially in the final third of the season under interim coach Peter Leven.

He said: “In my opinion, Dante was very good from the start.

“I don’t think he got a proper chance initially but this season, especially latterly, he was given a proper chance.

“People have no idea what college soccer is like but Dante was playing with Georgetown with someone who was my assistant for 10 years, both at Stanford and Notre Dame.
