Samuel Zavacky grew up in the youth sector of Fa Benecol from 2010 to 2015. He then moved to the Janocko Academy where he bought the As Trencin for the 2020/2021 season. He shows off with excellent performances and starts to return to the call-up round of Slovakia U-17.
Samuel Zavacky is a movement forward who can play the only striker or play close to another more physically structured player. He knows how to exploit the chances that come his way but he is also able to create important scoring chances for himself. He attacks the depth well creating problems in the defensive line thanks to his speed in the open field. He is also very quick and agile in the strait and has a high ability to jump the man in dribbling. He has creativity and resourcefulness in the game thanks to a vision of the development of the game and a great ability to touch the ball. He is strong in running at speed, in closing triangulations with his teammates, in providing assists and in finalizing the action. He always manages to find the coordination to hit the ball even when he does not arrive cleanly and has quality in shooting on goal. His nose for goals allows him to be very often in the right place at the right time. His main strength, however, is in the movements he makes: he comes out to attract the defenders and take them away from the line, he creates space for the insertion of his teammates but he is the first to attack him with conviction and malice if he sees that he is not occupied; sometimes the action leads him to widen the range where he is good at creating numerical superiority; inside the area he is very strong in attacking the goal and in freeing himself from the opponent's marking. He can improve in the game with his back to the goal even if he is intelligent in understanding that he does not have a great structure to win physical duels and so he downloads first and then moves in search of new spaces. He has time to structure himself and put more strength in his legs. In the non-possession phase, he helps his team by directing the pressure and attacking the central defenders with conviction. In fact, sometimes he recovers balls in promising areas of the pitch to go in search of a quick conclusion.
