David Flakus Bosilj should not complain too much about his form this season.The 21-year-old is a regular in the Netherlands, scoring 3 goals in 13 games for second division club De Graafschap, to which he is on loan for a year from Hellas Verona. David Flakus Bosilj is also a standard member of the young Slovenian national team, with which he is well on his way to at least qualifying for the next European Championship.
David Flakus Bosilj left for the Netherlands after a year with Bravo, where he didn’t score many goals but still made a good impression in yellow yersey. So good that it caught the eye of Damir Krznar, the former coach of Maribor.
The Croatian has admitted in the past that he quite likes the 2002-born footballer, and David Flakus Bosilj has now confirmed that Maribor’s summer interest was genuine.
“Offers (after the end of the last season, op. a.) came from different countries, both those closer to Slovenia and those a little further away. I think Maribor was also in the game, but it didn’t materialise. It is a great honour for a Maribor citizen to be connected to Maribor in any way,“, David Flakus Bosilj, who has also played for Aluminij on home soil in the past, told EkipaSN.
The talented Slovenian also revealed why he finally decided to move to Doetinchem, home of De Graafschap: “When I heard what the project was about and that the ambition was to get promoted to the first league, it immediately became interesting to me. Without any major complications, we completed the transfer in just over a week.”
