Celje’s hot member Aljoša Matko reveals that Maribor didn’t want him back before his transfer to Olimpija: “I guess they didn’t have room”
Aljoša Matko may even be the most outstanding individual in the Telemach First League. The quick-footed forward is a star in the Celje jersey and has already opened the door to the Slovenian national team with his good performances. In the current competition year, he has played 15 matches in all competitions, scoring 7 goals and adding 4 assists to his stats. Alyosha Matko has upgraded the footballer who impressed in the jersey a few years ago Maribor and is playing much better than he did during his months at Olimpija.
In an interview with Nogomania, Aljoša Matko talks about why he decided to temporarily move to Ljubljana in the winter of 2022. He explained that his agent had also offered him to Maribor at the time, but they were not interested.
Ajoša Matko: “Problems have arisen”
“I didn’t want to go to Slovenia at first,” confessed Aljoša Matko, who was a member of the Swedish club Hammarby at the time, and continued. ”But I wanted to play and prove what I could do. As far as Maribor is concerned, it was quite complicated. Even before I moved to Hammarby, it was strange. My contract was coming to an end and they announced that I had signed a new one. Problems have arisen. Look, it’s the past, there’s no point in dwelling on it. But when I was looking for a loan, I know that my agent offered me to Maribor. At that time, Maribor did not decide to do it, because they did not have the space. Olimpija came along and I went there.”
