Nino Ivačič, Rogaška’s sport director, harshly slams: “There are a lot of you in the refereeing organisation and the NZS who should be expelled”
Sunday’s match between Rogaška and Olimpija raised a lot of dust. Both because of what happened on the pitch, where Olimpija only secured the win in the referee’s extra time, and because of the fight in the VIP stand of the stadium in Rogaška Slatina. After the match, Nino Ivačič, Rogaška’s sporting director, also spoke out, slamming both the referee , Alen Bubek, and the entire Football Association of Slovenia (NZS).
Message from Nino Ivačić, Sports Director of Rogaska:
It’s not your fault, Alen Bubek, the referee of today’s match. You don’t really understand that in this refereeing organisation, which runs Slovenian football, you are just a tool for the destruction of Slovenian football. Maybe today you are important and proud, maybe you have received praise from your managers for having fulfilled your mission. But there will come a time when you will be thrown away, and then you will be nobody in football and in life. Or the Slovenian clubs will wake up and throw you out. There are quite a few of you in the refereeing organisation and in the NZS who should be expelled. And to do it with style and in a way that no one would ever think that they could ever again stand above Slovenian clubs, Slovenian football.
You, Alen Bubek, your superiors and your colleagues, who are incapable of seeing beyond your infatuation and infatuation with yourselves, are not even aware of the consequences of your actions.
The problem is not that NK Rogaška lost today. The Rogaška team is too good for even your rough interference in our team’s results to put our goals into question.
The problem is wider and much bigger. While you were waiting like a dog in a kennel to be taken for a walk to your car so you could go home, a lot was happening.
You spoiled a football holiday in Rogaška Slatina. First, because of your decision and your lack of culture and etiquette, Olimpija’s leaders provoked an incident in the stands, and later they were banging in the VIP area.
Many children came to watch their role models on the field, cheering and enjoying their moves, until the moment when they started shitting themselves “Thieves”, because there is no other way to say what you have done. You stole their joy of football. At the same time, you have awakened all the negative emotions that football can bring out in all the spectators. I believe that most of Olimpija’s fans don’t want to win in this way either.
Instead of the football festival in Rogaška Slatina turning out as it did most of the time, in a sporting and friendly spirit, you made sure that it turned into chaos. On the pitch, in the stands, in the car park, in the media. Again, the problem is not that Rogaška didn’t get points, Olimpija needs them more than Rogaška.
The problem is the tears in the eyes of the fans outside the stadium, the smashed head of an underage girl in a police intervention, the problem is that you make children not believe in fair football. And the problem is that people don’t watch the Slovenian league because of you referees. Because only you matter, you decide the results, you decide who will be or who will not be. will not play, who will or will not. will not be penalised. What’s more, you have the President of the Football Association and you are shaping football policy in Slovenia. You have brought football to its lowest point in 12 years, as shown by the results of the clubs and the national team.
The fact that nobody wants to watch you referees anymore is proven by the attendance at the Eternal Derby and other important matches in our league. A little more and there will be more referees than spectators. Perhaps other judges, whom you will educate in your spirit and in your convictions, will even come to cheer – for you, the judges. Then you will be able to take even more advantage of players, coaches and clubs. But maybe there will be a twist, and someone will adapt to you, and this Balkan touch will be resolved in a Balkan way. And then don’t let the Slovenian public be surprised when one of the judges finds himself in the role of a young man with tears in his eyes or a girl with a broken head.
Simply ask for such an epilogue, provoke and provoke. Although the NZS tolerates and encourages violence, we athletes do not want this, so the only solution is to immediately start a purge of the Football Association and the refereeing organisation.
So that there is no more inappropriate behaviour from officials, from fans. So that there will be no more tear-jerkers and smashed heads of minors in Slovenian football. Step down! And restore faith and hope in Slovenian football. And your places should be taken by people who can look everyone in the eye, people who will attend sporting events without security guards, and people who will leave games with a handshake rather than a police escort.
