We’ve had a number of articles on Haris Vuckic recently following the news that Manchester United may be interested in the player.
Haris Vuckic – International career lies ahead
Haris lives in Benton with his father and they both walk to the Benton training ground each day, as his father also watches the training.
And it seems like Haris has an outside chance of being selected for the Slovenian team, that was news a day or two ago.
This is what Haris said about the possibility of being in the Slovenia squad:
“I don’t think about going to the World Cup too much.” “I just want to focus on playing and getting back to fitness.”
“Yes, there is a small chance that I might get into the squad.” “It is not the main thing on my mind.”
“If I play well for Newcastle that’s the most important thing.” “We have to forget about the FA Youth Cup, move on and just play football.”
“You can be unlucky in football and that’s what happened.” “I was close to the first team and I got injured, I felt very unlucky.”
“But that is what can happen in football.” “Six months out of action is a long time, especially for a young player.”
“But I worked hard during that time and I am back now feeling stronger for it.” “I’m playing games again.”
We like that Haris talks about playing for Newcastle as his first priority.
It wouldn’t be a bad idea for the Slovenians to take Haris along, because he’s obviously a player of the future for them, and it would give the lad some good experience.
Haris is already in the Slovenia U-21 side, even though he’s still 17, and of course England took the then 17 year-old Theo Walcott to Germany 4 years ago, although Theo hasn’t come along as much as we had expected since the Germany World Cup.
