Although Olimpija claimed that the new coach would be a foreigner, there has been a turnaround: the Dragons’ main wish is now Zoran Zeljković from Koper
The saga of the search for a new coach at NK Olimpija Ljubljana continues. Yesterday it seemed that Felix Magath would take over the reins, but the press conference, which was supposed to introduce the successor to João Henriques, was only attended by Igor Barišić and Goran Boromisa. The latter stressed that the new coach of the Dragons would definitely be a foreigner, but according to Sportklub, there has been a change.
Overnight, the main favourite to take over the Green-Whites is expected to be none other than Zoran Zeljković! The Ljubljana resident has been in charge for some time Koper and has proven to be one of Slovenia’s most astute professionals with his work at Bonifiki, including winning a cup trophy. All this seems to have convinced Olimpija, which – according to Sportklub – is now turning its tentacles towards Bonifika.
According to Sportklub, Olimpija has already contacted Zeljković, also a former player of the Ljubljana club, who is expected to agree to move to Stožice. What is still missing is an agreement between the clubs. Koper recently stressed that they would not stand in the coach’s way if he got an offer from elsewhere, but it is true that he will only leave if he pays compensation.
