Zoran Zeljković will make his debut as the new coach of the club he has always had at heart, away to the club where he made his name as a footballer. Olimpija will be away to Domžale tonight at 8.15 pm, where two former Zmaji players will face off – Dušan Kosić against Zoran Zeljković. The former has its problems too, but given everything that has happened at Olimpija lately, it seems to be going into the Ljubljana basin showdown a bit more calm.
“We are all very much looking forward to the match against Olimpija. The national break passed very quickly and we certainly made the most of it in a very positive way. We want to be ambitious and certainly successful in terms of results,” said Dušan Kosić for club website and also touched upon Zeljković’s arrival to Olimpija: “It’s always difficult to predict what changes in the game and the formation of the other team will occur because of a change of coach, but in the end we don’t care. We are overloading and focusing solely on us and our game. The goal is the same as in every competition, and that is to be successful.”
Zoran Zeljkovic has not only had little time to prepare, he has also had problems with poor team form and injuries. Timi Max Elšnik is questionable, David Sualehe, Agustin Doffo and Marko Mijailović have problems and Matevž Vidovšek is lost for a long time anyway.
“You know what it’s like to coach Olimpija. Every game is important and every game is to be won. We have a tough away game in Domžale. We have some problems, but right now I just have to think about this game. I believe Olimpija can play better. We will do everything we can to ensure that this is the case. We have the biggest roster in Slovenia, which means that the guys who are healthy will play this time. I hope the captain will be there too. The main thing we need to fix is the defence, because we want to score far fewer goals. I have noticed that the energy in the team is a bit better, and that is the basis for real results,” said Zoran Zeljković before the baptism of fire at the Kamniški Bistrica stadium.
