Zoran Zeljkovic not unhappy with Ljubljana point: “We suffered too much to win the match against Olimpija”
Thursday’s tense showdown in Stožice produced an interesting performance, but not a winner. Koper took the lead in the biggest stadium in the country and held it almost until the end. But Olimpija did not give up, in 82nd minute, they found a way to get the ball behind Jan Koprivc’s back through Rui Pedro. Zoran Zeljković, Koper coach, said after the match: ”We have to be satisfied with a point. We suffered too much to win the game. We have also been forced to in certain unexpected substitutions, we had a hard time keeping the ball in our feet. That is why we should be happy.“
Despite Olimpija pressing towards the Koper goal in the second half, the latter had some dangerous actions. ”We did have an action towards the end of the game where we had a bit more space, but overall we really suffered too much. We didn’t want that. We need to play more and I think we are capable of doing that. We have some staffing problems, but when we are complete again, I am sure we will be better in that respect too,“, Zoran Zeljković, who was satisfied with the point he won, but added: “We are such that we are hard to beat. But we will also have to win if we want to stay at the top. Constantly winning. But it’s not easy.”
Zoran Zeljković: “We have a very difficult match ahead of us”
There is no time to rest, a weakened Koper will be away at Radomlje at the weekend. “It’s going to be a very tough game,” says Zoran Zeljković. The expert from Ljubljana continued. ”I watched the first half of Radomlje’s last game and I was convinced that they are a quality team. They’ve got a couple of reinforcements, they’re working really well. No, it won’t be easy. If we celebrate, it will be a great success. But I keep stressing that the championship is a marathon. So let us move on. But there is no doubt: a win in Radomlje would mean a lot to us.“
