Ante Šimundža satisfied after Radenci preparations and big win over Aluminium, but stresses: ‘We are in a process that will take time’
If the day is known by the morning, then it will be Maribor will return to the top flight after the national team break stronger than ever. On Saturday, the Violistas were away in Kidričevo, where they played against league rival Aluminium, with whom they have had a lot of problems this season. This time there was no doubt. Maribor won by a high score of 5:1. No wonder then that the new coach Ante Šimundža was happy when he returned to the capital of Styria. But he is cautious, aware that the hard work has only just begun.
“The most important thing is that we don’t have any new injuries. Soudani and Skuka responded well to the full-load training process and there were no complications. The boys got 45 minutes each and the fight for jerseys, which must always be present, was noticeable. It’s also a great approach. The things we agreed on the set-up have been fulfilled. We have been efficient enough to settle for that, but we will never settle for that. There were also some shortcomings, which will be addressed as the activities continue,” for club website

Ante Šimundža: ‘The boys are taking instructions’
The former coach of Mura and Ludogorets continued. ”As I mentioned during the week, the working conditions were excellent. We were only thinking about the pitch. It is good to see that the boys are taking the instructions and requests and taking them to the field in the right form. It’s one thing to talk and train, but it’s quite another to get things done in a match. It is noticeable that the boys take responsibility, want to win and show initiative. We are in a process that will take time. But these indicators are encouraging. The boys depend on themselves when it comes to decisions on the pitch, so it’s important that everyone recognises themselves in the situations they are supposed to be in. We want to be the best and we are working towards it.“
