On Sunday, Koper played its first match under a new coach in Fazanerija. Safet Hadžić replaced Zoran Zeljković on the Koper bench in the middle of last week, but remained unbeaten in his debut in Murska Sobota. Remi can be a success for the Seaside people, all the more so because it is Mura was already leading 2:0 in front of 1450 spectators.
Koper got the point with a goal in 86. minute, when Maj Mittendorfer scored and made sure that Safet Hadžić was happy after the end of the match on the plain of Prekmurje, no matter what.
“Given the way the match went, it’s normal to be satisfied. But it is also true that we scored both goals almost on our own,” said Safet Hadžić. The former Olimpija coach continued: ”Both teams played a quality match. People could enjoy. There was a lot of emotion, a lot of temper. In any case, I am satisfied with the performance and with my players, who deserved a point from what I saw.”
Safet Hadžić: “The change was a shock for the team”
Safet Hadžić pointed out that Koper started the game better, but then fell behind and allowed Mora to take the lead. “We were better in the beginning, but then the first goal they scored shocked us. Let’s not forget that I only had two days with the team… The previous coach was here for three years. The change on the bench was a shock for the team and the players will need some time to get used to my demands. I repeat, for all the above reasons, I am satisfied with the point,” explained 55-year-old Safet Hadžić.
Koper will play their next game on Saturday, when they will host hot Bravo. “I was also surprised that Bravo beat Maribor. This means that the Ljubljana team is very serious. Everyone in the league has a certain amount of quality and if you’re not the right person, you can’t beat anyone.,” added Safet Hadžić before the showdown with Ales Arnol’ s troops.
