Aleksander Knavs



Aleksander Knavs
A huge defender who made a name for himself with home team Olimpija Ljubljana.

His strength and commitment was then recognised in Austria where he earned a move to FC Tirol in 1997.

After a very successful opening season there injuries have limited his development over the last year, but he remains a dominant influence for Slovenia.

Starred for the Slovenian under-21 side and made his full international debut in a 3-2 win against Iceland in February 1998.

His first goal for Slovenia was the crucial equaliser in the Euro 2000 qualifying game against Georgia.
