Olimpija played its fourth game in the conference league group stage on Thursday, defeating Klaksvik to claim its first ever and therefore historic victory in Group A, where it can still hope for promotion. Zmaji heroes were reserves David Sualehe and Mustafa Nukić, while captain Timi Max Elšnik just watched from the sidelines.
Timi Max Elšnik continues to have problems with his thigh muscle, which is not torn, but is still strained to the point that he is more than obviously unable to help his teammates. This is of course bad news for him, for Olimpija and ultimately for Matjaz Keke, as the Euro 2024 qualifiers are just around the corner. But Zoran Zeljkovic, the zmaji coach, reassured the selector after the victory over the hosts from the Faroe Islands by saying that Timi Max Elšnik will definitely be ready for the games against Denmark and Kazakhstan.
“Timi Max Elšnik has an injury problem and we didn’t want to take any chances. He tried twice, but the next day it was even worse. I believe that he will be optimally prepared for Sunday’s match against Mura and for next week, when he will move to the Slovenian national team,” said Zoran Zeljković after the victory in Stožice on Thursday evening, 2296 spectators saw Olimpija beat Klaksvik .
