Ante Šimundža without concession for ex-national team player: Josip Iličić will return only when he is fit enough to train with the first team
Ante Šimundža became the new coach on Tuesday Maribor and immediately rolled up his sleeves. How successful he will be remains to be seen, but his return to Ljudski vrt also raises the interesting question of what the future holds. Josip Iličić. The former national team player is currently on the sidelines, put there by his now former coach Damir Krznar due to poor physical condition. But the Croat left… And what does this mean for Josip Iličić? He clearly has no reason to be prematurely happy. Ante Šimundža made it clear that Iličić will return only when he is in a fit enough physical condition.
“If he is able, he will be there. But if he is not capable, he will not be. Today, everything is easily verifiable. GPS can do it all. If you can’t train, how will you train with the team? We shall see, it’s all still open. Things have happened from today to tomorrow. Everyone is mobilised for the game against Mura until Saturday, all other things will be sorted out during the national team break,” said Ante Šimundža at the opening press conference on his return to the Maribor coaching bench.
