Bojan Jokić (born 17 May 1986) is a Slovenian footballer who plays for Spanish club Villarreal CF, as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Jokić made his senior debuts with local Triglav Kranj, aged only 17, and moved to Gorica in the 2005 summer. He appeared regularly for the side during his two-year spell, also being a part of the squad which was crowned champions in the 2005–06 campaign.

On 5 July 2007 Jokić moved abroad for the first time in his career, after agreeing to a four-year deal with Ligue 1's Sochaux.[2] He made his debut in the competition on 11 August, starting in a 1–3 home loss against Le Mans.[3]

On 30 January 2010 Jokić joined Chievo on loan until June.[4] On 22 May, after appearing regularly, he joined the Gialloblu permanently.[5]

On 5 July 2013 Jokić moved to La Liga side Villarreal, signing a four-year deal with the club, after his link with Chievo expired.[6] He made his debut in the competition on 29 September, starting in a 0–1 loss at Real Betis.[7]

International career[edit]

Jokić made his international debut with the Slovenia national football team on 28 December 2006, in a 1–0 win against Cyprus. He featured regularly for the national side, and scored his first international goal on 3 March 2010, scoring the last of a 4–1 routing over Qatar.[8]

On 1 June 2010 Jokić was named among the 23-man squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.[9] He appeared in all three matches during the tournament, as Slovenia were knocked out in the group stage.
