NationalitySlovene
Weight79 kg

PositionMidfielder

A defensive midfield player with a reputation for accurate passing, Miran was a member of the successful Olimpija side of the early 1990s, winning his first international cap in November 1993 against Slovakia. He switched to play in Germany for Dresdner SC in 1996 and then for Freiburg in 1997. He featured in the 2000 European Championship Finals and has been a regular in the team ever since. At club level he had a loan spell at Karlsruhe SC in 1999 before he moved on to Portugal to play for FC Porto during the 2000 close season, but has rarely appeared in the first team since his transfer. He is the ideal partner for Zlatko Zahovic being an excellent reader of the game and more than able to do the defensive work. He should start in the centre.
