Jure Travner: International Man Of Mystery!

Jure Travner: International Man Of Mystery!

Today's Watford Observer has finally shed some light on the situation of Slovenian left-back, Jure Travner, who was brought over from FC Celje over the Summer.

The Slovenian U21 cap is yet to make an appearance for the Hornet's and has been on the bench only once, at Plymouth. In fact, even Mat Sadler, the forgotten man of the Vic' has featured in the first team squad more often than Travner.

However, speaking to the Watford Observer, Malky Mackay has re-assured supporters that the Slovenian is settling in fine:

'At the moment we have a very small squad. Lloyd Doyley is playing fantastic football this season and has been a model of consistency and that is why he plays at left-back and Jure plays in the reserves.'

'Sometimes it takes time to settle in from abroad. Jure is doing that gradually. We will look at it to see if Jure goes out on loan or not. At the moment it is about whoever is in the team being consistent and Lloyd has been incredibly consistent'


However, what Malky hasn't come out and said is that the 25 year-old is actually on trial with a side in Norway!. According to the FK Haugesund website, Tranver has linked up with them on trial for the coming weeks. A translation is as follows:

Jure Travner (25) from World Cup-ready Slovenia lands on Helganes Sunday.

He trains with FKH in weeks to come, and will also play the match against SK Brann on Thursday. Jure has played 146 matches in the top series in Slovenia for the clubs Celje (126) and NK Smartno (20).

Jure has played many U21 national team and has also appeared in the A-squad, but has not yet been given his debut.

Jure's left foot. He is described as fast, aggressive, and tough. Jure is a useful player who can play left back, left-width holder and defender. He has a great opportunity to come up with the squad that travels to the World Cup in South Africa if he gets enough playing time towards the championship.

We want Jure welcome and good luck with your stay in Haugesund.


On the basis Travner is currently being sized up by another side, and one nearer his homeland, perhaps Mackay was telling the Observer a few porkies, as I can't imagine he'd be on trial in Norway if he had a part to play with the Golden Boys or at the very least on these shores!

The mystery deepens...
