Even before the match against Olimpija, Safet Hadžić was sitting on a rather unsettled bench, and with a defeat and four goals conceded in Sunday’s game, he undoubtedly did himself no favors. It increasingly seems that after the end of the first part of the 2023/24 season, there will be another change in the coaching position at Bonifika, and Safet Hadžić, after the painful defeat, has left his fate in the hands of the management of Koper.
“Whether I still have the support, you’ll have to ask the president and the director. We collaborate, but this is football. The director and the president are the ones who decide about it. They evaluate whether they have seen good or bad things,” emphasized Safet Hadžić after the 2:4 defeat, aware that Koper is not performing well under his leadership.
“We’ve certainly earned too few points. We need to aim to be better. However, we are not as bad in the game as the results show. I believe we are competitive in every match. We also have good things,” said the confident expert from Ljubljana, adding: “We have issues with individual mistakes. There’s a recurring blockade. These are mistakes that good teams capitalize on. I can’t find the reason why it’s like this. We simply concede too many cheap goals. I don’t blame the players. We’re all at fault, primarily me. We need to work on this. Maybe the problem is having 12, 13 players. If the competition were stronger, I’d have more ideas. Perhaps there’s room for improvement here.“
