Luka Mlakar is one of those young Slovenians who are proving themselves in neighbouring Italy. Only 17 years old, the striker is making his mark in the youth drive Rome where he is constantly drawing attention to himself. He has already attracted the interest of the national team coach Jose Mourinho, who has recently invited the teenager from Ljubljana to train with the stars of the Eternal City.
Luka Mlakar will have to wait a bit longer to get his Roma jersey, but he should not complain about his form in the younger selections this season. On Monday, he also shone in the Primavera, where Roma beat Monza 3-2 away.
Luka Mlakar was the hero of Roma, scoring twice. He scored the first goal in the 54th minute with a well-timed shot from the edge of the penalty area. In the first minute, he put the Romans 2-1 up, and eight minutes later, after a quick counter-attack, he scored again to make it 3-1.
Luka Mlakar, who was delighted to score his first two goals in Primavera, only his second appearance in the competition, was on the pitch from the first to the last minute and more than made the most of the opportunity. Slovenian defender Lovro Golič, who has already established himself in the Roma youth team’s starting eleven, also contributed to Roma’s victory.
