The Revolution Sign Antonio Mlinar- Probably!


Antonio Mlinar

The usually-reliable Taylor Twellman has tweeted that one of the two center backs teased by Brian Bilello earlier this week and to be officially revealed next week is 25 year old Slovenian defender Antonio Mlinar.

Mlinar has spent most of his career with NK Olimpija Ljubljana, a club that despite being only eleven years old won the PrvaLiga (Slovenia’s top division) last season and are currently tied for first this season.

The main area for concern here is that Mlinar missed almost all of the 2015-2016 season with a knee injury.  That said, he has played well enough since his return to receive a cap from the Slovenian National team last November and this January (against Poland and Saudi Arabia), to start 19 of 20 matches for Olimpija this season, and to be named club captain.

My assessment of this signing?  Who knows?  Here are some highlights of Mlinar from a few seasons ago if you’d like to form your own opinion:
