Tug of war: Miran Pavlin is hopeful of persuading Bayern Munich prodigy Robert Ramšak to link up with Slovenia instead of Croatia

The youngster is currently representing Germany at youth level and is gearing up to showcase his talents in the U17 Wolrd Cup finals against France later today.

Robert Ramšak, a member of the German U-17 national team, will play the biggest game in his young career to date. Today, Germany will take on France in the finals of the U17 World Cup. The young Bayern Munich prodigy has been playing for the German giant’s U19 squad and has performed admirably in the UEFA Youth League. The youngster has netted six times in thirteen appearances, while also providing three assists for his teammates at club level. The German born striker will turn 18 next season and will almost certainly want to play senior football at that stage of his career.

As his last name implies, Robert Ramšak has Slovenian roots, and his father Kristijan hails from Maribor. However, Slovenia isn’t Robert’s only option regarding playing senior national team football besides Germany. His mother is Croatian, which has already prompted the Croatian Football Association to step up their pursuit of the gifted forward. It seems that a tug of war is on the cards between the neighboring countries of Slovenia and Croatia, while Germany will also want to present their case to the 17-year-old in the coming months. His father isn’t keen on closing any doors for his son just yet.

I can’t speak for Robert. I understand it is a topic of great interest in Croatia, but he is getting ready to play in the World Cup finals with Germany. Now is certainly not the right time to think about the future and the possibilities that might lie ahead. I am not ruling out anything at this stage, so who knows? Right now, the focus is solely on Germany. Slovenia? We’ll just have to wait and see what the future brings.

The Slovenia national team would offer the youngster a chance to impress at senior level at an early age. Croatia has been very successful in international tournaments in the past decade, while Germany offers something that both Slovenia and Croatia can’t; representing a powerhouse in national football. It must be said, however, that it is significantly harder to break into the senior set-up of one of the strongest footballing nations on the planet. There is also an argument to be made about Ramšak’s potential status at senior level. Plying his trade with the Slovenia NT would instantly make him a local hero, as one only needs to look as far as Benjamin Šeško (RB Leipzig) to understand just how much it means to the people of Slovenia to have a talent of such caliber among their ranks.

In an exclusive interview with Nogomania.com, director of the Football Association of Slovenia (NZS) Miran Pavlin stated that Robert Ramšak’s case in special in many ways. The former Slovenia star has ensured he is on top of things and is closely monitoring Ramšak’s situation and progress in Germany. Pavlin is focusing on securing the Bayern Münich prodigy for Slovenia and says he will not back down without a fight with Croatia and/or Germany. It remains to be seen how successful Pavlin will be in his pursuit of the teenage striker, but it seems that even the idea of Robert Ramšak representing Slovenia has sparked quite the buzz among football enthusiasts back in Slovenia, who have recently seen their homeland qualify for EURO 2024 in Germany. Quite poetic, all things considered.

Rogaška je bila očitno le kiks na slabem igrišču: Maribor je na krilih Soudanija zmlel Domžale

Rookie - resno mislim, resno predlagam, da si nabaviš očala v kolikor jih še nimaš!! Če pa že imaš, pojdi na pregled za nova. Daj no, poglej posnetek razveljavitve gola in videl boš s prostim očesom, da je bila žoga pred tem z nogo vred , domžalskega igralca, za več kakor sam obseg žoge preko gol črte. Šele potem tukaj komentiraj kaj je pravilno in kaj ne, razveljavljeno!

Zeljković je videl veliko dobrega: Dominirali smo devetdeset minut, cela Ljubljana je dihala z nami

Se ne bi oglasil a me je zmotila izjava Zeljkovića, da je "kao" cela Lj. dihala s klubom?? Sam spremljam domala vse prenose naših tekem in imam o tem svoje mnenje. Med ostalim, da je bi ta derbi iz vrha lestvice v smislu gledalcev na "lepotici" spremljan kakor gledalška ali operna apredstava s strani publike. Sicer na oko soildno obiskana, čeprav za veliko mesto kot je Lj, slabo! Od bučnega spodbujanja do sodelovanje trubun z navijaško skupino, ne duha ne sluha. Pač lepo ter udobno, mirno in tiho z izjemo posameznih medklicev. Saj nič narobe, samo tu neke energije mesta z domačo ekipo ni bilo zaznati niti za seme... kako pa je to videl in doživel trener Z. pa ve samo on? Predlagam, da si pogledate posnetek sobotne tekme v L. vrtu in ste pozorni zgolj na navijanje; posebej, ko je bila tekma že končana. No, in ugotovili boste kako izgleda kadar neko nogometno mesto res diha s svojim klubom!

Slaviša je bil naš vodja, starejši brat, oče, trener. Kaj je ta človek preživel v Crveni zvezdi. Tam je osivel. Razumel nas je. Bog ga je nagradil z naslovom prvaka. Fantje so imeli iskreno radi klub. ...več

"Z nogometno zvezo imam pogodbo, ki me veže do Eura, toda začeli smo že pogovore in pričakujem, da se bo razrešilo v naslednjih nekaj dneh. Ne vidim rad, da me vlačijo po govoricah, tega je bilo zadnja leta preveč. Razmišljam o pripravi na Euro. Dobili smo tudi skupino v ligi narodov, želim pa nadaljevati to pot s sijajno skupino igralcev in strokovnim štabom, ki je opravil velik posel. ...več

Franz Beckenbauer je največja osebnost, kar jih je imel Bayern. Kot igralec, trener, predsednik, človek ... Ni mu para! Nihče ne bo nikoli dosegel njegove veličine. Bil je moj prijatelj, bil je darilo vsem nam. Dragi Franz, počivaj v miru. ...več
