The boy is not guilty of anything, but the fact is that his agent did him no favours. Amir Ružnić has this week served up a rarely seen media outburst. Maribor publicly accused Maribor of treating the young man“as if he were the last piece of trash” and threatened to take him elsewhere if his status was not corrected. Marko Šuler, Maribor’s sporting director, was also quick to react, replying to Ružnić that there is no agent in this world who will dictate to the coaches in Maribor who will play and who will not.
This naturally begs the question, what fate awaits the young Slovenian national team player? As I said: it’s not Mark Strajnar’s fault… But the fact is that the agent’s media appearance could have consequences. Will there be?
Marko Šuler announced that a meeting with a former member of the Domžale. “When I was in football boots, I would never have allowed someone to do such things for me. But I have also been on the bench a lot, and I have also been wronged. But this is football, we are all bleeding under the skin. In the end, it’s the playground that tells its own story. The steward in this story is not guilty of anything, he is a professional, and he has consistently fulfilled all his obligations,“, Marko Šuler told Ekipo SN.
Marko Šuler: “Agents in charge of other things”
The Ljudski vrt club’s sporting director continued.But it is also true that he comes from a completely different environment, a different club, where the bar was set differently, the norms were different, the way of working was different. We wanted to give him time, and he has time. When I get back from Mainz, we’ll talk. But one thing is certain, no one will go beyond the club and the coach. No one has the right to do that. Especially because the coaches and all of us spend not once but ten times more time with the players than anyone else. If anyone knows the players, it’s the coaches and the club. Agents are usually in charge of other matters. But I repeat, I am not going to lecture and talk sense into anyone about these things. We do not accept blackmail or conditionality. This is not the right way.”
