Celje in the opening match on Friday 14. round Slovenian championship beat Domžale 3:1, two matches will be played on Saturday on the Telemach First League pitches. Koper – Bravo will kick off at 17.30, Maribor – Rogaška at 20.15. Ante Šimundža will try to lead the Violistas to victory, which would be more than welcome after the defeat against Bravo.
But Ante Šimundža, before the visit of the guests from Rogaška Slatina, at the press conference in Ljudski vrt, spoke not only about the match, but also about many other things that happened after the match with Bravo.
Among others, Amir Karić, who described Maribor’s current team as the worst in the club’s history. Although, interestingly, his son also plays for it… “That’s his opinion, not mine. His opinion, and he probably stands by that opinion. That’s his business. As for my opinion, I have already said enough by taking over the team,“, Ante Šimundža replied to his former teammate in front of the assembled journalists.
The expert, who replaced Damir Krznar on the bench, also touched on Amir Ružnić’s media outburst that Maribor is working with young Marko Strajnar“as if he is the last trash“. Marko Šuler, Maribor’s sporting director, quickly replied to Ružnić, telling the agent from Izola that he was not the manager who would tell the Violistas’ coaches who should play and who should not.
Ante Šimundža: ‘Mark is an equivalent solution’
“We are talking about Amir Ružnić, agent and sports director Mark Šuler. Personally, I find it very difficult to comment on all this, it is really their business. But the fact is that it indirectly affects me too, after all I am the coach of Maribor… Mark is a young player for Slovenia, he works well in training. It is up to him to choose the starting 11. What goes on behind the scenes is normal in the world of football. The issues are absolutely clear. It makes sense that Mark is interesting. He plays for the biggest club in Slovenia. The stories about Maribor are very interesting, as are the Maribor football players. All this, of course, carries a certain burden for each individual. These things are common in football. I see Mark as an equal solution to all players who can play in his position. Players can prove to me every day in training that they can play. We don’t need to talk. In every training session, they have the opportunity to prove to me and my colleagues that they want to play and that they can play. No other debate is possible,” is seen as the status of a former member of the Domžale Ante Šimundža.
