On Sunday, Mura will play its first match in 2024, facing the league leaders in the Prva liga Telemach. The black and whites will be without their suspended coach in Celje, and Vladimir Vermezović emphasized before the visit to the princely city that while his team will do everything for success, the main spring goal for the Prekmurje team is not associated with the championship but with the cup.
While Mura is currently in 6th place in the national championship, they will face Čarda in the round of 16 of the Slovenian Cup, opening wide doors to the quarterfinals.
Vermezović: Mura Completed Preparations Well
“In winter, three of our best players left, and some things changed. Every game will be like a cup final for us. I said some time ago that we will focus a lot on the cup competition, but we will approach every league game with the same passion. We will try to seize every opportunity to climb the standings,” said Vladimir Vermezović ahead of the clash with Damir Krznar.
Regarding the winter preparations, the expert from Serbia added: “I am satisfied with how the boys worked in the preparations. They accepted the work style without problems; there were some minor injuries, but that is normal. We’ll see; I think every job pays off, especially hard work, as football cannot be played without certain things. I believe we have done everything according to plan; we played challenging preparatory matches. We could have played against weak opponents, but then we would probably get a false picture of the current situation and our strength.”
