It could have ended differently. But Olimpija had a lot of luck on Sunday night in Stožice. Twice it was saved by the referee’s two really surprising decisions. It seemed that he would have Robert Pevnik a lot to say over the referees, but the coach Aluminij bite your tongue instead. “I will not comment on the refereeing decisions, the analysis will already be done on Under the Crossbar, but we have to have faith in the refereeing organisation and in the referees,” was the “politically correct” Robert Pevnik.
The coach of the club from Kidričevo was much more cautious about his team’s performance in Ljubljana. “I am proud of the boys, proud of what they have shown this time. I am also proud of the tactical discipline. When you come to Stožice, first of all you have to dare to play. Despite our youth, we were bold and aggressive, but in the end, football didn’t reward us the way we wanted. We could have led, after all we did…” said Robert Pevnik.
The coach of the club, which relies on youth and has one of the youngest teams in the world, continued.Our main goal was to be the first to score, and we did, but it was overturned. Regardless, we were disciplined in our play, the boys really did their job and I think we deserved to leave Stožice with one point. I don’t regret that we came so close to scoring; it’s important to create those chances. But we will hit in Murska Sobota what we didn’t here. It is important to be creative and to persevere and trust in the process. I am confident that these boys will develop into great football players.”
