Jani Šturm (born 20 March 1982, in Brda), is a Slovenian footballer who plays as a striker for Manzanese.


Šturm began his career with Brda, he was then scouted in 1999 by Gorica, he played one year for the youth side and joined returned to his hometown club Brda on loan. After the loan spell with Brda, he returned to Gorica and played his first games in 2001 in the Slovenian PrvaLiga. In the summer of 2005, Šturm was due to sign for Leicester City, but the move fell through after he failed a medical on his long-standing groin injury.

In July 2007, Šturm began a two-week trial with Dundee United[1] before beginning a trial spell with Greenock Morton.

On 1 August 2007, he signed for Dundee in a one-year deal with the option of a second year, rejecting apparent interest from Morton, St Johnstone, Gretna and Dunfermline Athletic.[2]

Šturm scored his only goal for the club in a 2–1 victory at the Dens Park, ironically coming against former suitors Morton.

Šturm was released from the club on 31 May 2008, after scoring only one goal in his time at the Dens Park.

In August 2008, Šturm returned home to Slovenia, where he signed a two-year contract to play for Domžale.

Šturm scored his first league goal for Domžale with the game's opener against the previous season's fourth placed side, Celje, in a 3–2 away victory. He was released by Domžale in August 2010, and signed for Drava Ptuj in January 2011, where he stayed for eight months before resigning for his first club in the Third Division, Brda.
