Although Nafta surprisingly lost away to Ilirija in Ljubljana on Saturday, the club from Lendava will spend the winter at the top of the standings of 2. SNL. Lun Bončina also deserves a lot of credit for this. The young forward, only 20 years old, scored 10 times in the autumn, which ranks him second in the top scorers list. Lun Bončina will do everything he can in the spring to ensure that Nafta progresses and that he himself climbs the ladder of the most efficient players in the 2nd division. SNL. But…
But this raises the question of whether Lun Bončina will stay in Lendava at all. Former talent of Olimpija, who played for Primorje last season, has already won his first foreign suitor with good games. As we have learnt, the youngster caught the eye of Hungarian club ZTE, who won the Hungarian Cup last season.
Nafta and ZTE have been working very well together for some time, which is not surprising, as Gabor Vegh is the president of both clubs. So if Lun Bončina really goes to ZTE Arena, we will hardly be talking about a classic transfer, more about a jump from a smaller to a bigger club within the same football family.
While ZTE would certainly need a player capable of scoring goals, the Blues have only scored 16 in 13 games this season, so it’s no surprise that they are only 10th in the Hungarian Premier League standings.
As an interesting fact, Lun Bončina had the opportunity to go abroad already in the summer, one of the clubs from Luxembourg showed interest in him, and the doors of Poland were also opening for him. But the young man thought it would be better for him to stay on home soil for at least six months. Clearly, he was not wrong.
