What Went Wrong With Haris Vuckic?


Newcastle have had some very good youngsters come through the Youth Academy yet for one reason or another never make it to become a first team regular at the club.

One player who has done that recently is Paul Dummett, who has become the regular left-back under Rafa Benitez.

One player we had really high hopes for was Haris Vuckic when we signed him as a 16 year-old in January, 2009 from Domzale in Slovenia and he even became a full International while still a teenager.

But over the last three years or so Haris lost his way and his loan spells at Cardiff, Rotherham and Bradford City were not particularly successful although he did well at Rangers two years ago.

Haris will leave Newcastle in the summer when his six and a half contract he signed in early 2011 when Alan Pardew was the manager will run out.

And there’s news today in Holland that he is on a one week trial with Eredivisie club FC Twente.

News in from Holland on Thursday morning, that FC Twente have agreed to take Newcastle’s Haris Vuckic on a week’s trial.

Haris played 19 times with one goal for Newcastle but he never fulfilled his enormous promise as a teenager.

Of course we’ve had other top youngsters not make it at Newcastle such as Adam Campbell who is currently playing for Notts County so it just shows how fragile a young football career can be.

We hope Haris Vuckic can get hooked up with a decent team this summer when he leaves Newcastle as a free agent.

    God I not knows what happened. There was (is?) definitely a player in there somewhere. Maybe the six n a half year contract he was on affected his drive / appetite.

    I my mind, when his hand was broken by a sizzling ball driven forward changed him completely. One thinks a leg or foot injury would be the most common event to shatter a players confidence, but not in this case.
