Gal Kurež and Arian Rener, who we have also seen in the past wearing the jersey of the young Slovenian national team, decided to make an interesting move this summer. Together they said goodbye to Slovenia and moved to North Macedonia, where they wear the jersey of GFK Tikves. For now, Gal Kurež, former member of Olimpija and
Bravo, who played in all the matches of the local national championship. Meanwhile, Arian Rener is still waiting for her league debut.
But the former goalkeeper of Tabor Sežana got his chance in the Cup in the middle of the week and made the most of it. Thanks to him, Tikveš made it to the semi-finals of the competition, while Gal Kurež also contributed to the glory. The two Slovenian players were indeed the heroes of their club: Gal Kurež scored the extra time goal and Arian Rener defended the decisive white spot kick to give Tikves the win against Pandev Academy.
It ended 7:6 for Tikves, with Gal Kurež also taking an 11th-metre penalty, but he failed to get the ball into the net, sending it over the crossbar. He was lucky, his teammates “saved him from the torment”, and his compatriot Arian Rener played the biggest role in that, stopping two attempts from the white spot.
