Olimpija has the worst defence in the league, disgruntled coach Joao Henriques slaps the table: ‘Enough defeats for the whole season!’
Who has the the worst defence in Telemach First League? It may sound unbelievable, but that’s the way it is: Olimpija! The Dragons have scored 17 goals in eight games! Or in other words: almost half as many as in the whole of last season (39)! Three defeats in eight games is too much, says a visibly unhappy coach Joao Henriques, who was not happy after Saturday’s defeat to Bravo. He was not only angry with the Football Association of Slovenia but also with his team.
Joao Henriques: “This is unacceptable!”
“A team that wants to be champions should not be conceding four goals!” said Joao Henriques after the match in Spodnja Šiška and continued.When you come to an away game like Bravo and score two goals, that should be enough to win. We got four goals. Again! And once again, after our mistakes. This is unacceptable. We give goals to our rivals. To all competitors. They don’t have to do anything to score goals. They just wait and we give them the ball. All our individuals make mistakes. And it is time to stop making such individual mistakes. We lost for the third time, that’s enough defeats for the whole season, not for the first quarter of the season! We need to think.”
Olimpija’s new slip-up was profitably exploited Celje, which beat Radomlje with a goal by Marek Zabukovnik and increased its lead on the first place in the Slovenian national championship standings to five points.
