Olimpija also reacted after the events in Rogaška Slatina: ‘NK Rogaška fans attacked sports director Goran Boromisa’
The day after the hot match in Rogaška Slatina, the management of NK Olimpija Ljubljana reacted as expected. The Dragons strongly condemned the behaviour of the crowd at the match with Rogaška while at the same time taking the opportunity to comment harshly on the playing conditions at the renovated sports facility in Rogaška Slatina.
Press release of NK Olimpija Ljubljana:
In the light of the unpleasant events that took place at the last championship match between NK Rogaška and NK Olimpija in Rogaška Slatina, we express our absolute support to the sporting director and all the players of NK Olimpija. Our players deserve to be congratulated for a good and fair game, because they withstood the pressure, gave their best and registered an important victory before the autumn part of the season.
The Olimpija Ljubljana Football Club strongly condemns all the actions that took place at the end of the match. The main referee, Alen Bubek, awarded the most severe penalty to Olimpija in the 91′ when the score was 0-0. Marko Mijailović is brought down in the penalty area after a free kick, but is brought down by Andrej Pavlović. Rui Pedro scores from the white spot. Raul Florucz sealed the victory in the 99′.
After the eleven-metre whistle, a showdown broke out in the VIP section of the stand. Because the sectors are not sufficiently well fenced off from each other, even the remaining spectators got involved in the action. The fans of NK Rogaška attacked the sports director Goran Boromisa, who was watching the match in the company of the director Igor Barišić, the physical preparation expert Nikola Vidović and his young son. They threw bottles and beer glasses at the NK Olimpija delegation and followed them into the VIP interior. Violent behaviour continued after the match in the tunnel next to the pitch. We witnessed foul language and harsh reactions, so our players had to leave the venue escorted by the police.
Not to waste words on the lawn. It was in a very bad state. Inadequately prepared and contrary to all the guidelines of leading organisations such as FIFA and UEFA. The risk of injury was therefore very high.
Our club condemns all violent and unsporting behaviour and strives to act in accordance with the values we believe in. We will continue the season with fair play and in the spirit of fair play and will do our best to ensure that such incidents do not happen again.
