If in football it was once believed that a player only needed an agent in the later years of their career, especially when they’ve achieved something, things have drastically changed in the last few decades. Footballers are now signing contracts with agents even in their teenage years, and Slovenia is no exception in this regard. Recently, Amir Ružnić has been aggressively recruiting young talents, boasting about new teenage clients almost every week.
Joining Ružnić’s agency, AR Sport Management, is Dušan Vukelić, a mere 16-year-old defender who plays for Celje on the club scene and has also earned several caps for Slovenia’s youth national teams.
Despite being born in 2007, the young talent, primarily a defensive player, has scored 7 goals in 14 matches in this season’s first cadet league for Celje and stands as the club’s second top scorer alongside Žiga Kranjec (only Alban Veselaj has more goals – 12). Dušan Vukelić joined Celje last year; before that, he showcased his skills in Koper. The promising footballer has scored 10 goals in 41 matches in the cadet championship so far.
