Club careerEdit

Born in Skopje, Ristovski began his career at hometown club Vardar before he signed a five-year deal with Italian club Parma in January 2010. He was 17 at the time but the deal could not become official until he turned 18.[1]

Ristovski joined Serie B club Crotone on loan on 6 July 2011. After not receiving much playing time, the loan was cancelled in the January 2012 and he was then loaned to Frosinone for the remainder of the campaign. On 5 July 2012, he was again sent on loan, to Serie B side Bari. He was then loaned out to Latina in the same division for the 2013–14 season, returning to them for a second time in January 2015.[2] Before the bankruptcy of Parma, Ristovski was under contract with Parma until 30 June 2019.[3]

In July 2015, Ristovski moved to Rijeka in Croatia.[4][5] The transfer was facilitated through Rijeka's Italian partner club, Spezia. In order for Ristovski to remain eligible under Italy's non-EU quota, he was signed by Spezia on a free transfer and then loaned to Rijeka.[6] On 7 August 2017, Ristovski signed with Sporting.[7]

Ristovski made his debut for Macedonia on 10 August 2011 in an away friendly against Azerbaijan.
