Jan Koprivec (born 15 July 1988 in Koper) is a Slovenian football goalkeeper who currently plays for Perugia in Italy.


Koprivec started his career at FC Koper. Along with first team player Jasmin Handanovič, Koprivec was transferred to Italian clubs from Koper in summer 2007. Koprivec played for Cagliari in the first round and the first leg of the second round matches of the Coppa Italia 2007-08, both of which Cagliari won. But Cagliari used Fortin in the second leg, which they lost 4–0 to Sampdoria, and failed to advanced to the next round.

On July 2008 Koprivec completed a move to Udinese, and immediately joined their pre-season camp.[1][2] He made his league debut for Udinese on 22 March 2009 against Genoa.[3]

On 17 August 2009 he was loaned out to Serie B side Gallipoli.[4] He made his debut 4 days later, in a 1–1 draw with Ascoli, ahead Carlo Sciarrone and Simone Palese, and played only eleven games with the club from Salento due to an injury that hampered his settling into the first team. He returned to Udinese at the end of the season, and was then included into the first team as second-choice goalkeeper behind fellow Slovenian Samir Handanovič.
