He is not the first one who is unhappy with the way many young footballers have been doing at Ljudski vrt lately, but he is the one who has said what he thinks out loud and without inhibitions. Amir Ružnić, a prominent Slovenian football agent, made a rarely seen media appearance in which he unreservedly took public issue with both the Maribor as well as the sporting director Mark Šuler.
Amir Ružnić is furious about Mark Strajnar’s status at Ljudski vrt. The 19-year-old left wing-back arrived in the capital of Styria this summer from Domžale, and Maribor paid a hefty compensation for him. But the young man, who is also a young Slovenian national player, doesn’t play much. He has made 10 appearances in all competitions, spending 401 minutes on the pitch. So on average, he gets less than half a half per game.
“They treat him like he’s the last scumbag!” he told the newspaper Ekipa SN Amir Ružnić, who is convinced that Mark Strajnar is better than the two foreigners (Ignacio Guerrico, Itsuki Urata) who are getting an advantage over him. “This is also a reflection of the current situation at the club. We all know how things worked before and we all know what the situation with Marko would have been like if the people from the past, the ones who were most responsible for Maribor’s golden era, had been in the club,” was the Izola agent, who was particularly sharp.
Ružnić: “He is being done a great injustice”
Amir Ružnić went on to say that he was angry with us for believing Maribor’s sporting director Mark Šuler despite numerous other offers, and then stressed that he would not tolerate this status for his protégé for long. “I have already told Šuler loud and clear that if Mark continues to have the status he had with Krznar, I will have to move Mark. I will not allow them to be so disrespectful to a boy. I will not stand idly by and watch this matter, but I will find the boy a new club where he can play regularly, because I think he is being done a great injustice.,” added the former Domžale member Amir Ružnić for Ekipa SN.
