Club career[edit]

Sulmona Calcio 1921 won 1–0. On 23 October 2011, Bajner scored his first goal for the "white-reds" in a 1–1 draw against Mosciano.

Borussia Dortmund[edit]

On 1 September 2012, Bajner transferred to Borussia Dortmund II. He scored his first goal against Chemnitzer FC on 7 October 2012.
