Although, after parting ways with Udinese, where he led the youth team, he emphasized his desire to stay in Italy, Jani Šturm returned to his homeland six months later. The promising coach will be active again in Slovenia, specifically in the 2. SNL, where he will lead the team of ND Bilje.
“We announce that, after Thursday’s unexpected and sudden resignation of the current head coach, Marin Mikac, we have appointed a new coach for the senior team.
Starting with Monday’s training, Jani Šturm will begin his work, who most recently coached the Udinese Primavera team, and Slovenian surroundings are not unfamiliar to him since he previously led the seniors of Brda and the youth selection of ND Gorica,” the Primorci stated on their official Facebook profile.
“We thank Marin for his work and wish him all the best on his future path. We extend a warm welcome to Jani and wish him lots of luck and success in leading the black-and-white family’s first team. Jani, welcome!” they added at the club, which currently holds the 10th place on the 2nd SNL standings.
Jani Šturm has previously proven himself on home turf as a footballer. He spent the majority of his career at Gorica, also playing for Domžale, Drava, and Koper. He also played in Italy and wore the jersey of Dundee in Scotland. The 41-year-old scored 20 goals in 142 matches in the Prva Liga Telemach.
