Amir Karić (born 31 December 1973 in Orahovica Donja) is a retired Slovenian footballer.

Club career[edit]

After his impressive performances at the 2000 European Championships, Karić was brought to English football by Ipswich Town in September 2000 for £700k.[1]

His appearances for Ipswich were limited to three in the League Cup before he was sent out on loan to Crystal Palace, where he only played 30 minutes of football before being substituted. His loan spell at Palace was then cut short and the player returned to Ipswich, where he was made to train with the goalkeepers. He is widely regarded by Palace fans as the worst player ever seen at Selhurst Park, along with Israeli Itzik Zohar. Karić's contract at Ipswich was terminated by mutual consent in October 2002.

After that, he played for Moscow.

In 2005–06 he played for the Cypriot team Anorthosis.

During his career he also played for Rudar Velenje, AEL Limassol, Gamba Osaka and for Koper.

International career[edit]

He played for Slovenia at Euro 2000 and in the 2002 World Cup.
