Miha Mevlja (born 12 June 1990) is a Slovenian professional footballer who currently plays for Bnei Sakhnin.

Club career[edit]

Mevlja first began his career in football with ND Gorica where he eventually spent four years with the first-team. His time with Gorica was largely unsuccessful as the team's positing in the domestic league progressively dropped and in the Slovenian Cup the club went out at the quarter-final stage in each of his four years. In the summer of 2013 Mevlja joined FC Lausanne-Sport on a free transfer, his first club abroad, and will compete in the Swiss Super League after signing a two-year contract.[1]

On July 2014 signed to Bnei Sakhnin for 1 year.

Personal life[edit]

He has a twin brother named Nejc, who plays as a centre-back for NK Maribor.[2]
