Zoran Zeljković is no longer coach of Koper. The Primorje team confirmed what was predicted: the Ljubljana-based expert has returned home and taken over the management of Olimpija. Ante Guberac, the president of Koper, spoke and explained why the Primorje team allowed their undoubted success to go to Stožice. The fact is that they “left” their coach to a rival for the top of the Telemach First League standings.
“Everything was correct. Igor Barišić and the coach informed me that they would like to discuss the possibility of moving to Stožice. I was aware of the agreement, so the clubs still had to agree on the appropriate compensation,“, Ante Guberac explained to Delo, adding that at that moment the story with Zeljković, the former coach of the Novomeške Krka club, was more than over for him.
“If we had not found a common language, it would have been difficult for me to continue working in Koper. He knew that he would have a better contract, that he could lead Olimpija in Europe, that Olimpija is a bigger club than Koper, that he is a Ljubljančan, that such opportunities are rare or only offered once,” added the first man of the coastal club.
