Ante Šimundža praises Josip Iličić after first days in Maribor: “He will be able to show his skills and be satisfied with himself”
A smiling and visibly fitter Josip Iličić – a scene from a training session Maribor that warmed the heart of many a fan of the Styrian giant. And Ante Šimundža, who returned to Ljudski vrt this week, is not hiding his satisfaction either. “Status on Josip Ilicic’s GPS device? Very good!“, Ante Šimundža shot like a cannon and confirmed that it was not just an “optical illusion”. The 35-year-old Josip Iličić has clearly done a very good job, serious and enthusiastic in the past few days on the sidelines.
“Jojo has reached a certain level to be able to show his skills and he will be happy with himself,” said the former national team player of the club website
Ante Šimundza, but the club is not completely without personnel concerns. Captain Martin Milec, for example, is still on the sidelines.
Šimundza: “Things are getting better”
“The list of missing ones is a bit wider, but these are mechanical damages that are out of your control. Milec is unavailable, as is Jakupovic. Antolin can’t yet, Sikoška won’t be with us for long. But Soudani is already at almost 100% load. Kolar is coming back after some intermediate problems, Vrhovec is feeling good, so things are improving in the overall standings,“, Ante Šimundža, who replaced Damir Krznar on the Maribor bench, described the personnel situation.
