Marin Tomasov (born 31 August 1987) is a Croatian footballer, who has represented Croatia as an under-21 international player. He plays mostly as an attacking midfielder or a right winger. He is known for his pace and skill on the ball.
Marin Tomasov was brought up through the NK Zadar youth academy and in 2006 he signed a professional contract with the senior team and was assigned the number 14 jersey. In the three season he spent at the club, spanning from 2006 to 2009, he made 72 appearances scoring 12 goals. His 2008-09 Prva HNL season was especially impressive and Croatian giant Hajduk Split were quick to snap him up in a deal worth over 350,000 euro's in the summer of 2009. At his new club he retained his jersey number of 14 which he wore at NK Zadar.
In his first season at his new club he found himself in and out of the starting line-up appearing 22 times in both league and cup games but only 11 of these were from the starting line-up. He managed only two goals in all of the 2009-10 Prva HNL and even though he was only 20 years old at the time, he stated himself that he was disappointed with his season and will be looking to improve in the future.
His 2010-11 season was just that. In the league he made 26 total appearances, 15 of which were starts and scored 4 goals but where he grabbed the most attention was his performances in the 2010-11 UEFA Europa League where he grabbed two goals in nine games and starred throughout the competition in both the group stage games and qualifying.
Marin started the 2011-12 Prva HNL season in exhilarating fashion scoring the winner in the opening game against HNK Sibenik in the 87th minute. His next goal came three games later when he scored the first in a 3-0 away win against NK Istra 1961. He also scored the next match in a home game against NK Zagreb where he grabbed the opener, scoring inside 50 seconds of the start of the match. He grabbed the opener again in the next match in the Split derby against RNK Split making it the third consecutive game in which he scored the opener, this time coming in only the second minute.
Marin made seven appearances for the Croatian under 21 national team side but has been not yet been called up to the senior side.
