Rogaska also reacted with harsh accusations: the NHS is the mother of Olimpija, Vidovšek threw a bottle at the head of a federation representative
First of all
. The press release is
, but Rogaška did not oblige. Rogaška Slatina has written an article that is raising a lot of dust, not least because the Black and Whites have accused Olimpija goalkeeper Matevž Vidovšek of shooting a representative of Olimpija in the head.

throwing a bottle at the head of the head of the national football team! Rogaška also labelled the NFA as the“mother of Olimpija“, but this time it was the rival from the Slovenian capital that was hit more than the NFA.
NK Rogaška press release:
Rogaška Slatina is not Ljubljana, the Rogaška Slatina Sports Centre is not Stožice and NK Rogaška is not Olimpija. And it doesn’t want to be. Our stadium may be small, it may be in the middle of a cornfield, it may not offer the comfort of some other stadiums. But we are proud of it nonetheless. In record time, we met the infrastructure criteria to play in the first league in Rogaška Slatina, because we deserved it on the pitch.
The work on the stadium was carried out by contractors who were paid for their work. We are also helped by many volunteers, who are rewarded for their work with a football festival that we can now regularly host in our town. Our VIP stand is not 200 metres away from the first fan like in Stožice. We also felt that there was no need for additional security in the VIP stand, as we expect guests to behave in an exemplary manner.
Our matches are attended by 10-20% of the total population of our city, in Ljubljana it is not even close to half of one percent. Our fans don’t go to the games to take pictures, they come to cheer their club and defend their club’s colours. We have a loyal audience, regular visitors. Only the guests change. There were no incidents in the match against Bravo, but the friendly with the management of Mura (who beat us) lasted for an hour or two after the match.
The same home team was present at the Olimpija match, only the management of the opposing club was different. Leadership with different thinking, different behaviour. You were not at home. You were in our living room. And nobody will behave offensively towards our fans in Rogaška Slatina, nobody will provoke them. You can do it at home, in Ljubljana, where you can even hide from your fans. You provoked an incident by showing your middle finger, by insults and provocations. Unfortunately, the Rogaska management could not prevent this because they were not present in the VIP stand.
Our club has no leadership at the moment, because your mother, the Football Association of Slovenia, has overthrown it. A few drops of drink directed towards you is a good outcome compared to what could have happened as a result of your irresponsible behaviour, especially when you had a child with you. Fortunately, the security service, staff and volunteers reacted well and prevented physical contact.
And don’t get into inappropriate VIP space. For us, it’s absolutely fine. If you have to be protected from your own fans by walls and security guards in Ljubljana, that’s your problem.
We don’t need that in Rogaška Slatina. We are well aware of the meaning of football and for whom football is played. You may think football is played for you important people in the VIP stand, but we think it is played for the fans and football fans. They are not our enemies, but our companions. Without fans, there is no club and we hang out with them. After every match. And you? Do you only socialise with each other? Or perhaps with referees and NHS representatives?
We await with interest the punishment handed down to your goalkeeper Vidovšek, who threw a bottle of water at the head of an NHS representative. Did you sweep this under the carpet at your gathering?
