While Gorica is also discussing a possible business cooperation with Milan Mandaric, who was with Olimpija twice national champion, and a new investor is also being sought in Sežana. Tabor, like Gorizia, is out of this year’s Telemach First League, but unlike the Roses, it is doing very badly in the 2nd SNL. The Red-Blacks are currently winless and at the bottom of the standings. Yesterday, due to an injury of Nacet Kosmač, they got a new coach (he became Bulgarian Radostin Aleksandrov), and apparently a new business partner is on the way. And not just anyone.
According to Primorske novice, the man in the running to come to Sežana is none other than … George Juncaj! Yes, the American businessman who brought his son, also Edy Reja, to Nova Gorica in the winter and then, when the going got tough, picked up his pitchfork and hooves. Allegedly with some unfulfilled financial promises, Primorske novice wrote: “His partnership with Gorizia did not end in satisfaction on both sides. The intermediaries are supposed to keep a certain amount of money for themselves, allegedly some €80,000, earmarked for the club.”
After his retirement, George Juncaj became a business partner of Rijeka (where his son is now on the payroll) and apparently still has his sights set on Slovenian football. The Camp would undoubtedly benefit from someone who has something under their thumb, but at the same time it is true that the story from Nova Gorica should also be a good warning…
Tabor will play its next second league match today, when the Round 14. The people of Sejan At 15:00 they will take on Fužinar, the other matches on the schedule will be Brinje Grosuplje – Bistrica, Bilje – Krka (both at 15:00) and Triglav – Primorje (17:00). On Saturday, Beltinci – Gorica, Tolmin – Ilirija, Rudar Velenje – Dravinja and Nafta – Jadran will also be played.
