On Sunday, there were more spectators in Stožice than at Thursday’s European game against Klaksvik. According to official data of Football Association of Slovenia, the game between Olimpija and Mura was attended by 2,500 people, many of whom came for the spectacle promised by the fans. Green Dragons celebrate 35th birthday, which is why Olimpija coach Zoran Zeljković is all the happier that his charges defeated a tough opponent from Murska Sobota.
“The Green Dragons mean a lot to everyone in the club. When people come in large numbers, we all know what it means for the club. We knew that the best gift and the biggest prize for them would be three points. That’s why we really wanted to win. I told the boys before the game that I don’t like to make promises, but I can promise them that we will put all the energy we can into this. We fought until the last minute and got the victory we wanted,” said Zoran Zeljković at the press conference after the victory, which was scored by Timi Max Elšnik.
Green Dragons celebrated their birthday with a choreographed and pyrotechnical spectacle, and will continue their anniversary celebrations in December when they will travel by train to Bratislava for a European tour.
