Gregor Balazic: “It wasn’t easy”
Gregor Balazic, 35, who can boast that he was also Serbian champion with Partizan Belgrade, said of his new role: “It wasn’t easy to end my football career, injuries started to appear, my body was giving signals that enough was enough. I have always lived for football, behaved accordingly, worked on myself and that is why this decision was not easy. But I have two sons and now I will be able to spend some more time with my family. However, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the President Robert Kuzmich and the Sports Director Denis Rajbar for the trust they have placed in us. I believe that my experience can also help the club in my new role, where I will be actively involved in the composition of the playing staff, while deepening the bond between the team and the club’s management. Once again, I must stress that it is an honour to be able to stay in the club where I grew up. Mura has a good foundation, last season was not successful in terms of results, but now we need to get to work and get Mura back to where it belongs and where it should be every year.“
