Robert Pevnik not hiding his satisfaction after the resounding triumph in Celje: “The victory is proof that we must continue to stick together in the club”
Aluminij defeated the only team that hasn’t lost in the new season of the Slovenian championship. The Kidričani vs.Celje won 3:1 away, with goals by Tomislav Jagić, Žan Baskera and Sandro Jovanović from the white spot. Mario Kvesić scored the only goal for the home team from penalty. Robert Pevnik, the coach of Aluminija, was not hiding his satisfaction after the first victory after a series of consecutive defeats.
“First of all, I would like to thank and congratulate the players. They have shown confidence. It’s hard to be away from the top of the standings after five defeats. Celje has a really great team. But we believed in ourselves, and then we were on the pitch, rising minute by minute. In the second half, we were much better and faster. We crowned a good game with three goals and deservedly won. This victory is proof that we must continue to stick together in the club. Even when the results are bad. But of course we will not be euphoric after one victory. Despite that, the boys played a fantastic game,” said Robert Pevnik after the victory in the capital.
Robert Pevnik: “After the win, it’s all about Maribor”
Aluminij will try to repeat their good performance at the weekend, when Maribor awaits them on Sunday evening. Robert Pevnik is optimistic, but remains on solid ground: ”I am most happy that after the celebration the boys have already talked about Maribor. These are the guys and players who want to succeed. Of course, sometimes they play worse and make mistakes. We live with that and it is normal that today we will enjoy the victory. But at the same time, we are already thinking about Maribor. We have three days to recover. Fortunately, we also have a fairly broad staff, which will allow us to refresh the team. Let’s move forward with confidence. As I said before the game: above all, I want the players to play and enjoy. But they must also be disciplined and not naive. If you’re also cheeky enough, you can win like we did this time.“
