Jan Oblak signed a professional contract with Slovenian side NK Olimpija Ljubljana in january this year, who just returned to the top division after a 4 year hiatus.

Oblak started playing football at the age of 8, for his home town team NK Lokan of Skofje.

He made his debut for Olimpija against Gorica on july 26th, becoming the youngest goalkeeper ever to play in the Slovenian top division, picking up a man of the match award in the process. He played again against Rudar on the 31st.

He has had trials at Empoli (last year) and Fulham (in august). He has stated that he really enjoyed his time at Fulham, but that the club won't sell him now. He just signed a new contract with Olimpija until 2011.

Oblak said in an interview that he would one day like to play in England or Spain. He's favourite club is Real Madrid, his favourite player being, no suprise, Iker Casillas.

Re: Jan Oblak

any news about this guy?

16y/o and got a +3 rise to 76.

whats up?

Still Olimpija's first choice. He's also played two matches for the Slovenian U21 team against France and Belgium this month. Slovenia lost both matches.

The average rating of the team is around 77-78, i guess, so I didn't really expect a much higher rating this time. But the kid's got potential :)
