A Slovenian striker who played in Malta is on trial in Chornomorec

Chornomorets Odesa is one of the UPL clubs, which has been keeping the names of potential newcomers a huge secret for more than a decade. The tradition, which began during the winter intermission in the 2002/03 season by the then head coach of the Sailors, is maintained and improved to this day. However, such things, especially at the time of the latest technologies, are nothing more than an “open secret”. This can be said about the first foreign newcomer who played today for Roman Grigorchuk’s team in a friendly match against Romanian Petrolul. From unofficial sources in Turkey, UA-Football has learned that the mysterious “player on trial” is Slovenian striker Luka Šušnjara. The 26-year-old was most recently a member of Valletta in Malta, where he had spent the previous four months.

Prior to that, in his very busy career, there were also performances for eleven other clubs. For nine and a half years, Šušniara played for Slovenian FC Domžale (U-19), Roltek (Dob), Zarica (Kranj), FC Celje, Muru (Murska Sobota), FC Koper, Tábor (Sežana), Italian Atalanta (U-19), French FC Chambly Oise, Polish Wisla (Plock) and Croatian FC Sibenik.

Luka Šušniara’s transfer value on Transfermarkt is only €150,000, which is considered a negligible amount at current prices in world football.
