Celje faces Aluminium, young Nino Milić stresses: ‘We are in the position we want to keep until the end of the season’
Wednesday and Thursday will be a busy day in Slovenian club football. Three matches will be played today in Telemach First League, including Celje and Aluminij. The two clubs, who played their first match of the season 2-2, will kick off at 17:30 and young Nino Milić will be one of the players who will do everything for the home team’s victory.
The 19-year-old left wing-back has been a regular in coach Alberto Riera‘s starting XI this season. He only missed the games against Aluminija and Olimpija, but made nine appearances in all competitions. Before the match with Kidričani, he expressed his confidence that Celjani will be able to continue their positive run of results. “We are in a good run of results and we want to continue that against Aluminij. We are in first place, a position we want to hold until the end of the season. It’s a long way off, but it’s certainly easier if you’re first, because you have only yourself to look to. We need to do our job and show our quality on the ground,” is for club website Nino Milić told the club’s website.
Nino Milić: “The atmosphere is great”
Nino Milić, a former Maribor player, went on to admit that from a personal point of view he cannot complain about the 2023/24 season either: “I would describe the start of the season as encouraging. Although I had some problems with an injury at the beginning, I managed to come back quickly and also registered an assist for a goal against Domžale. The European experience was also something special. A lot has happened since the arrival of the new coach, because through individual discussions and analyses each player can realise how much he still has left. The atmosphere in the dressing room is great and when you’re doing well, you want to play as much as possible, so we’re actually looking forward to a busy schedule.“
