Aleksander Šeliga (born 1 February 1980 in Celje) is a Slovenian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Dutch club Sparta Rotterdam and the Slovenian national team.


Club career


Early career

Šeliga played most of his career for hometown club NK Celje in the Slovenian PrvaLiga. With this club, he also participated in the UEFA Cup. In 2005 he joined Slavia Prague, but after an unsuccesful period with the Czech side, he returned to NK Celje.

Sparta Rotterdam

In the summer of 2009, Šeliga was tested by two clubs in the Netherlands. The first club, SC Heerenveen, was in desperate need for a keeper. After training with the side, he did not get a contract. The second club where he tried his luck was Sparta Rotterdam. The club also needed a keeper, after Cássio Ramos returned to PSV Eindhoven after an ended loan-period. After a brief internship, Šeliga signed a contract for two years. In his first season with Sparta (2009-10) he was chosen as first keeper by coach Frans Adelaar.

International career

As of 2007, Šeliga is member of the Slovenian national team. He has still not played a match for his homecountry, because he is second-goalkeeper after Udinese keeper, Samir Handanovič.
