Mura has secured a duo of reinforcements with a Slovenian touch following a pair of foreign signings. Returning home from SK Sturm Graz is Tija Šoštarič Karič, while from Olimpija, another defender, Zala Vindišar, has joined the ranks of their greatest rivals. Interestingly, Mura has revamped almost its entire defensive line this transfer window. Three new players excel as central defenders, while Tija Šoštarič Karič adds depth on the flanks.
The arrival of Zala Vindišar has primarily enriched Mura with experience. She’s a player who has amassed 117 appearances and 34 goals in the domestic league, an impressive record for a central defender. Tija, on the other hand, provides a new option in the full-back positions, where she had previously impressed before her move to Austria. Mura’s acquisition of Zala Vindišar has somewhat disrupted Olimpija, who had previously seen another national team defender, Špela Rozmarič, move from Murska Sobota to their side. So far, most of the transfers have been observed from Mura to Olimpija.
Mura Adds Value with Two New Players
“We are pleased to have added two players to our team who will undoubtedly bring added value. We already know Tija and are aware of her qualities, while Zala has already proven herself in the jersey of Olimpija and the national team. I’m glad she chose us, and I believe they will help us achieve our goals,” said Dejan Škerlak, the technical director at ŽNK Mura, commenting on the third and fourth signings.
“I am very pleased to be part of this team. I look forward to new challenges with the new team and want to help Mura achieve the goals set by the club. I would like to thank for the opportunity and look forward to everything that lies ahead,” Zala Vindišar enthused about the new challenge. “I am very happy to be back in my hometown environment. I can’t wait for new experiences and challenges. My teammates have welcomed me very nicely, as has the new management. I think it was the right decision for me, and I look forward to where my football journey will take me,” Tija Šoštarič Karič expressed her excitement about playing again in the black and white jersey.
