Most people have never heard of him, and to be honest he plays in the Czech Liga( not exactly the best league in Europe), but he is playing in a first division league in Europe.

He has had a very solid season according to reports about him, and has helped Znojmo, a team he has been loaned out to, climb to mid table in the first half of the season. What's interesting about him is that he is a winger. I have no idea of his abilities, but he is a player to keep in the back of your mind.

The Czech Liga is in their winter break, and he will return to his parent club Jablonec.

He is a dual national with Bosnia and the US.

If he's getting starters minutes then he should at least get some looks come next european friendlys. Czech League is better than Scandanavian Leagues. If Gatt gets looks then he should at least be in the discussion

Interesting he is 21 years old starting in a decent league and fills a position of need. Good job bringing him up 2 tone I heard about him signing in Sweden a couple years ago and then I wondered where he went to. My guess is Klinsmann or the USMNT doesn't rate him high enough to call him up yet. However if he keeps starting and can put together another solid season he could be a potential European friendly call up for a position in need.

I have no idea if the Czech liga is better than any Scandinavian top flight league. My guess the Czech Liga is very similar. But, I don't think the US wants another Vedad Ibisevic, even though technically Ibisevic was never a US citizen.

This guy is a US citizen, and was highly rated player in the state of Michigan.

Just a name to keep a watch out for.


First off, I must admit, this is as much a plausible wish-list as it is an attempt to decipher Klinsmann's plan.
