Zoran Zeljković before signing a contract with Olimpija set some of his conditions. There weren’t many of them, mostly revolving around the professional staff. According to our information, although the Ljubljana residents were not too enthusiastic about the changes at first, they eventually agreed to them. Probably also because the search for a new coach has already gone down their throats… Anyway, Zoran Zeljković is not the only one leaving Koper for Ljubljana.
Yesterday we already reported that Benjamin Levak will be the new goalkeeping coach, and Zeljković has – expectedly – brought in a new assistant. This role, as is already known, has been taken over by Djengis Čavušević. “Everything else will be discussed in the next few days,” Zoran Zeljković said at Thursday’s press conference, hinting that there will be more changes. One of them is, as mentioned, the arrival of Levak, and Ben Gasser will almost certainly move from Koper to Stožice.
Ben Gasser is a former Slovenian footballer who spent part of his career at Olimpija. He played very little for the Green and Whites, making only two appearances and spending a measly six minutes on the pitch. He was also previously a member of Bravo and Brežice, he also spent time abroad with Vitesse and Slovan from Bratislava. He was also a national team player in his younger years, but his career later did not go according to his personal expectations.
So it’s no surprise that Ben Gasser, at just 28, is already a former footballer. But he has remained loyal to the sport. He has taken up a new profession and now works as an analyst. He has been in this role in Koper, and will now be in the same role at Olimpija. Some of the club’s bigwigs were against his return, but Zeljkovic insisted on it too, wanting to bring Gasser with him, and apparently got his way.
