The Yellow & Blue midfielder took a look back at his club’s performance in the 3:0 victory over Gorica. Number 15 talked about finishing the job off in Slovenia, the new coach and starting the season well:

“It was important to start the year off on the right foot and our first match was pretty good. Of course we can definitely improve and play much better, but we are happy to open the year with a win.”

Starting the season well:

“On a personal level I want to make sure I begin my season well and not like some of the past campaigns. I want to do start properly and I did exactly that today.”

The confidence shown by the new coach:

“I was really happy that he gave me the credit and had confidence in me. I always give 100% when I’m on the pitch and I’ll make sure to show Arveladze that I belong. We’re getting along well and we’re understanding his expectations for us. It’s my responsibility to justify the credit I’m getting in every match I play in”

Next week’s second leg in Slovenia:

“For sure we’ll come ready. In football you never know a lot can happen. We’ll make sure to finish the job.”
