The Croatian shot-stopper spent three seasons (2006–2009) at Panionios F.C., where he made 56 appearances for the Athenian side in all competitions. He became the first-choice goalkeeper for the team in his second season, and his solid play between the posts played a crucial role in Panionios' run to the 2007–08 Super League play-offs last season.
He moved to PAOK FC in June 2009 on a free transfer from Panionios F.C. At PAOK, Krešić was expected to challenge Greece international goalkeeper Kostas Chalkias for the starting role. While Chalkias' experience played a key role in PAOK's ability to clinch a berth in the UEFA Europa League next season, Krešić's athleticism and potential will most definitely challenge Chalkias' tenure between the goal posts. On 28 July 2010, PAOK was playing against Ajax in Amsterdam Arena and Kostas Chalkias who was injured at the 15th minute was substituted by Krešić. He played in 18 games in the 2010–11 season, as of November 2010. Has was also voted MVP of the team three times.
On 31 July 2012, Krešić signed a two-year contract with FC Lokomotiv Moscow. He made his debut for the new club on 11 August 2012 against Alania Vladikavkaz. After having made only one substitute appearance for Lokomotiv in the first part of 2013–14 season, Krešić was released by his club.
