Koper coach Zoran Zeljković smiling after big win in Maribor: “It’s always nice to win, especially here in Ljudski vrt”
Koper should not complain about the results in the 2023/24 season. The Primorska side won five times in seven games, and are one game behind the leaders Celje with only four points behind Celje. This time Koper beat Maribor in Ljudski vrt, so it’s no surprise that coach Zoran Zeljković was smiling in front of the Sport TV cameras after the match, which his team won 1:0.
“It’s always nice to win, especially here in Ljudski vrt. As expected, it was a very tough game, but I think we deserved to win in the end. We suffered a bit at times and unfortunately we didn’t manage to finish the game a bit earlier, but I know that it is far from easy against Maribor,” said Zoran Zeljković after the celebrations in Štajerska.
Zoran Zeljković: “The championship is a marathon”
The Ljubljana resident continued: ”Maribor left more players in the attack at the end of the game, which opened up more space for us to counter-attack. As I said before, we could have finished the game earlier, but I believe we will learn from these mistakes and situations.”
Koper will be back in action on Thursday, when it hosts the injured Olimpija, who lost to Bravo on Saturday. “The championship is a marathon, but thank goodness we have a wide enough pool of players this season. As I told the boys, every one of them will get a chance and they are all really working hard in training,” concluded Zoran Zeljković.
