Although Rui Pedro received a “very good” contract, as revealed by Goran Boromisa, the sports director of Olimpija, the leading scorer of the Prva Liga Telemach (First Slovenian Football League) has decided not to sign it. Consequently, the Portuguese striker remains in Ljubljana, where he trains with the youth team, while most of his teammates are on training camp in Turkey. This is probably a unique case in the history of the Slovenian league, where a club has sidelined not only its top scorer but also the most effective player in the entire league.
In light of all this, the crucial question arises: what will Rui Pedro do until the summer? Will he just train? And only with the youth team or somehow away from the main squad? Given that we are in the midst of the transfer window, the former prospect of Porto could, of course, go elsewhere. But rumors say: Olimpija demands one million euros for the winter transfer! Clearly, no one will pay that much…
But did Olimpija receive any offers for the 25-year-old player? “Officially, there have been none. Unofficially, there have been inquiries from Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and China. But these are all countries where Rui Pedro does not want to move,” revealed Goran Boromisa for the Navijaška cona. He added, before the departure of the Dragons to Turkey, that his “sixth sense tells him that everything will end well.” Given the players available to coach Zoran Zeljković on the Turkish Riviera, it seems that the Croat’s sixth sense has led him into a dead end this time… [ Photo: Vid Ponikvar / Sportida
