Bozgo is no longer a member of NK Maribor, he signed for AEK Larnaka from Cyprus a month ago. Kvas and Mujanovič also left before the new season started.
Maribor signed 2 new strikers, Richmar Siberie - Rocky ('82) and Mate Eterović ('84), 2 young strikers from our own football school joined the A team (Zajc '87, Vračko '88), there's also Jelič ('86) and Kramberger ('80) who were with the A team already last year but they're currently injured. We expect the most from Rocky, Eterovič, Zajc also left a very good impression, he played friendly matches very well and scored against Crvena Zvezda which we beat 2:1.
12 players left Maribor before this season (Kuzma, Balajić, Pitamic, Franci, Žnuderl , Brezič, Teinovič, Komljenovič, Mujanovič, Kvas, Bozgo, Golob). 6 new players came (Zeba - '83, Rocky - '82, Eterović - '84, Šimić - '79, Popović - '82, Pregelj - '77), 7 players from our youth teams joined the A team. From what I've seen the new players are good, Zeba is BIH U-21 member, very good on the ball, good 1:1, good passes, he's a playmaker, Rocky is very strong, hard to guard, good 1:1, Eterović seems to have a striker's instict, he scored a lot on friendlis, also against Zvezda and Hajduk. I haven't seen Popović play, he's a former SiCG U-21 member, also an offensive miedfilder.
We have a totally new, very young team this year (only 1 player - Vuksanovič is over 30), a new coach Milan Đuričić. So far I like what i've seen from Đuričić, he emphasises hard work, discipline and fighting spirit. He's like that at trainings too, a lot of discipline and hard work. All in all I'm looking forward to this season, I think we have a new, exciting team and i believe we are among candidates for the championship. If we don't win the championshp this year no one will be dissapointed as long as there will be a noticable progress in building the team. Our goal is to be in the top 3 and get a spot for the european competitons (CL or Uefa).
