How much did Olimpija pay to bring a new coach from Koper? The amount circulating in the public domain is between €100,000 and €150,000, although the Ljubljana club’s business director Igor Barišić, when mentioning the latter figure, said that the amount was “lower, much lower“.
What is true is that Olimpija had to pay – Koper demanded the first instalment before the deal was concluded. At the same time, it seems that the two clubs have also reached an agreement on one of Olimpija’s players – Ivan Posavec is expected to leave for Koper in the winter, according to Primorske novosti.
The 25-year-old attack-minded midfielder from neighbouring Croatia moved to Ljubljana at the beginning of this year. Before that, he played for Varaždin, spent time with Dinamo Zagreb and even spent some time in Spain with little-known club San Ignacio.
Since he has been playing for Zmaji, Ivan Posavec has logged 31 appearances, but he hasn’t been very good statistically. He hasn’t scored a goal in the green and white jersey yet, but he has made three assists.
Ivan Posavec has a contract with Olimpija until June 2025, but it is not known at the moment whether he will leave to Koper as a loan player or become a full member of the coastal club. Neither Koper nor Olimpija have officially confirmed the deal.
