, but the Gorenje player has decided that his return home will have to wait.
The 23-year-old moved from Austria to Belgium, where he signed for RSC Charleroi. As it seems at the moment, it was the right decision. The three-time Slovenian international has played six games in the Belgian championship so far and registered one assist.
“There was some talk after Tirol, but I really didn’t want to go back to Slovenia, although it’s nice to hear that such clubs are interested in you. When I was younger, I had the opportunity to go to Maribor, but my agent and I thought it would not be wise for my development. It was probably a good decision,” explained Žan Rogelj to Nogomania. The former Triglav member from Kranj also admitted that he had found his feet well in Belgium: “I had no problems switching from the Austrian to the Belgian league. Of course, it’s faster here, more dynamic, but I think I’m keeping up with the pace. I am happy and satisfied to be playing in one of the strongest leagues in Europe.”
