Ante Guberac is grateful to Olimpija for Niko Omladič, but also believes the 34-year-old deserves a national team jersey
Although he is already 34 years old, Nik Omladič is still proving that he is by no means a man to be shot. The former Slovenian international (6 appearances) is wearing the Koper jersey this season, and Ante Guberac admitted that he didn’t hesitate for a moment when the opportunity came up for Nik Omladič to come to Bonifika. Ante Guberac, President of Koper, publicly thanked Olimpija for not going for his former member, even though Nik Omladič was actually waiting for a call from Ljubljana.
“When we found out that there was a possibility to collaborate with Niko Omladič, we didn’t think for a minute. We knew he was a player who would make a difference in our league. I don’t know where Olimpija was looking, but it’s no secret that he was waiting for their call, but didn’t get it. I can only say thank you,” said Ante Guberac for Sportclub , who is more than satisfied with the 1989-born footballer’s contribution so far. What’s more, Ante Guberac is convinced that Nik Omladič is the best player in the Telemach First League right now and that Matjaž Kek might also take notice of him.
Ante Guberac: “Youth will be even better”
“Nik adds value. I don’t want to interfere too much in the decisions of the selector, who ultimately decides who is fit for the national team, but Omladic is the best player in the league right now. He proved it against both Olimpija and Maribor. I can tell you that it is not yet at 100% of its potential. It will be even better,” is convinced the first man of the club from the Coast, who some time ago also “offered” Andrej Kotnik to Keke, but the Slovenian selector ignored his words. Could it be different this time?
