The Kopra camp is responding to many accusations.
The people of Koper justified their role as favorites in Rogaška Slatina and won important points, but the success was overshadowed by the decision of Safet Hadžić, who made a substitution shortly after the starting whistle of Aleksandar Matković. Not because of possible injury. Luka Žavbi’s first league debut lasted only 45 seconds, the promising young man was somehow a ‘victim’ of the U-21 rule. At Bonifika, they do not want to hide this and emphasize that they were forced to do so by the circumstances, adding at the same time that they did not do anything that was not allowed. On the other hand, the public is wondering about the ethics of such behavior and what consequences could have a promising teenager who had to leave the field after 45 seconds… “What consequences some! The boy knows what it’s all about, we’ve agreed on everything. Relations within our club are regulated. And the boy also knows that we are seriously counting on him. Like many others. Young people are of great importance to us, we work with them. The fact that Luka is in our plans is ultimately indicated by the fact that he has been training with the first team for several months and that he has already made his debut in the member competition and played both cup tests in the previous part of the season. However, the public did not attach importance to this, nobody was interested in it. I don’t know why others care about us so much. We know how to take care of ourselves. In any case, we strive to develop talented players properly, we pay a lot of attention to this, and we may end up with three on the pitch in the near future who meet the U-21 rule. No, we do not neglect young people, as some accuse us of. Not even by chance,” Ante Guberac asserted.
“I really don’t know why there is such a buzz around it, why is everyone dealing with this exchange? In the end, we created a problem for ourselves. This is our club thing. I think we should be talking about much more important things. About those who make people lose confidence in Slovenian football, and many began to doubt the regularity of the championship.” emphasized the alpha and omega of the Koper first league team
