Dušan Švento (born 1 August 1985) is a Slovak former professional football midfielder who played as a left winger or left-back. He spent most of his career with Slavia and Red Bull Salzburg while representing Slovakia.

Club career

During summer 2007, Švento went to an English club Derby County for a trial and to take a look at the club's facilities. More English based clubs were interested. However, this interest ended as he damaged his knee ligaments after returning to Prague. He underwent surgery and was out for almost a year.

On 16 June 2009, Švento joined Red Bull Salzburg after signing a three-year contract for a transfer fee of €2 million.

In June 2016, he returned to Slavia Prague.

In early February 2019, it was announced that Švento would rejoin Red Bull Salzburg, however, he would no longer be an active player. Instead, he undertook the role of U12 manager.

International career

Švento made his international debut for Slovakia in the friendly match against Malta on 15 August 2006, under coach Dušan Galis. He scored his first goal in the national team in an away game against Wales (5–1 win) on 7 October 2006.
