That Marcel Ratnik stands out from the crowd in the Prva liga Telemach is a fact that holds true. Matej Mavrič Rožič, former Slovenian national team player, has taken it a step further and publicly expressed the belief that the Olimpija defender has a successful career ahead of him, one that won’t be limited to Slovenian club football.
“I wouldn’t want to be biased, but I adore both his game and his appearances. To display such maturity at this age is rare, and I believe a great career lies ahead of him,” emphasized Matej Mavrič Rožič for Šport TV, who represented Slovenia in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
Regarding the young Prekmurje native, he added: “In Slovenia, everyone knows him well. He made his mark on the football scene at a very young age. It was quickly apparent that he can play and can be good. What’s especially good is that at this age, he’s maintaining such consistency. He has it, and he’s caught the eye of many clubs. There might be some offers for him in the upcoming transfer window.”
Marcel Ratnik, only 19 years old, has been attracting interest from several clubs for some time. Recently, there has been intense interest from Swedish champions Malmo and the third-best top-flight team in Sweden, BK Hacken.
