Rene Mihelič (born 5 July 1988 in Maribor) is a Slovenian footballer, who plays as a midfielder for Debrecen.


A former Slovenian under-21 and senior international, he came through the Maribor's youth academy, before settling on their first team and was signed by Nacional in 2010. Mihelič made a debut for Slovenia when he was 19 years, one month and 17 days old, which makes him the youngest player ever to play for the national team.[1]

On 8 February 2013, Bulgarian side Levski Sofia confirmed Mihelič had joined on loan until the end of the season, with the option of making the move permanent. He made his official A PFG debut for Levski Sofia on 17 March 2013, after coming on as a substitute in the 0–0 home draw with Montana. Mihelič scored his first goal in his first appearance as a starter for Levski Sofia, netting the equalizer in the 1–1 away draw with PFC Cherno More Varna on 30 March 2013.[2]

He returned to Slovenia in October 2013, when he joined Zavrč.[3]


On 25 January 2014 Mihelič was signed by Hungarian League club Debrecen.[4] In an interview Mihelič admitted that he made the best decision in his life to sign a contract with Debrecen.[5] On 22 July Mihelič scored his first goal in the UEFA Champions League 2014–15 qualifying round against Cliftonville F.C. at the Nagyerdei Stadion.[6]
