Tickets for Slovan are selling quite poorly, Olimpija goalkeeper Matevž Vidovšek is disappointed: “It’s sad!”
Thursday is here and so is the second match Olimpija in the conference league. This will be a historic occasion for the Dragons, as it will be the first time in their history that they will host a group stage match of a European Cup. One would expect the stadium to be packed, but this is clearly not the case. Tickets for the match with Slovan are selling poorly, with insiders estimating that the game will be attended by well under 10,000 spectators. Matevž Vidovšek, Olimpija’s goalkeeper, is not hiding his disappointment.
“I hope I won’t be misunderstood by any fans, but it’s sad. We have to be aware that such matches do not happen every week. The sad thing is that a lot of people say a lot of things, a lot of people write a lot of things online, but they are not in the stadium where they are needed most. Sure, we always have those regular supporters by our side, we can always count on the Green Dragons, but the loudest ones, all the ‘sofa selectors’, stay at home,” said Matevž Vidovšek at the press conference before the showdown with the Slovak champions.
Matevž Vidovšek: “Only when free balls were given away”
The national goalkeeper continued before the match against the club, where the Slovenian player Kenan Bajrić also earns his living: “We are always hearing some announcements or promises… When you are champions, we will come. When there is a double crown, we will come. Last season, we won it all, and the only time the fans turned out in bigger numbers was when there were free balls in the stadium and in the decisive derby of the season. In the new season, there was the sell-out against Galatasaray, the historic game against Ludogorets was close, but everything else was… sad. We always come back to the same excuses: when this happens, we will be this, when that happens, we will be that. Now that we have everything, now that we have the group stage of the European competition, we are stuck at the same point.“
