Celje entered 2024 with a victory over Mura. The black and white team initially took the lead in the princely city but then conceded four goals, losing 1-4. Damir Krznar, after the match, didn’t hide his satisfaction with his team’s performance and also revealed that the win is dedicated to Edmilson. The Brazilian missed the game due to the difficult childbirth of his wife and serious health complications with the newborn, prompting an immediate return to Portugal.
“Before the match, we talked about the fact that we have to succeed for Edi. He should have started the game, but due to a difficult private situation, he was absent. We hope that everything will turn out well. All the players are with him in their thoughts. His situation has united us even more as a team because we wanted to dedicate the victory to Edi and his family. We succeeded in that, and now we all hope that the situation will turn out well for him and his family,” Damir Krznar said after the match for the club’s website.
In addition, national team player Žan Karničnik added: “The match was also emotional for us. Before it, we learned that certain things were happening to the child of one of our teammates during birth. Fortunately, we have since learned that everything is fine. The game was dedicated to him; we played for him as well.“
