Simon Sešlar leaves Celje’s bench, but the club’s youth from the capital hasn’t woken up yet: Štajerska defeated in Dolenjska this time
On Monday, the last match of the 9. round of the Eon NextGen Youth League, Brinje Grosuplje and Celje clashed. Although the Štajerska were among the favourites to top the standings before the start of the season, they are struggling at the start of the season. All this even led to Celje being without a coach. A few days ago, Simon Sešlar, a former Slovenian national team player who was absent from the Celje bench for the last two matches, said goodbye. This time he was replaced by Marko Gobec, the professional manager of the youth team, who did not find a recipe how to wake up the quality, but apparently rather “sleepy” Celje team.
Just under 100 spectators witnessed NK Brinje Grosuplje’s 1:0 victory on Monday. The only goal of the match came in the 81st minute. Aljaž Zalaznik scored the winner for the hosts. It was the fourth win of the season for the home team, while Celje suffered their second defeat, but it is worth mentioning that the Štajerska have five draws. NK Brinje Grosuplje is 7th in the standings. Celje is 10th.
The hosts, led from the bench by Urban Žohar, started the game with Trobec, Kušar, Tomšič, Lazarević, Zalaznik, Islamagić, Ristić, Zrnec, Miklič, Strnad, Stojaković, Vitamvas, Francis, Jurić, Ježovita and Handukić. Celje’s first line-up consisted of Kolar, Ilinčić, Justinek, Kerezović, Kujović, Turinek, Džumhur, Klašnja, Kahvedžić, Mačak, Jevšenak, with Karapanja, Petrak and Šelih getting a chance later on.
