Camoranesi is even more convinced that Maribor is going in the right direction


“We saw what we want to see,” said the coach of the purple team Mauro Camoranesi after a reliable victory in Nova Gorica, his Maribor beat Gorica 4-0 and broke a series of three games without a victory.
After the European shame against Colerain in Northern Ireland, the Croat had to say goodbye to the Maribor bench Sergej Jakirović. At the time, he was the sports director of the Purples Oliver Bogatinov pulled a move that most applauded. He brought the famous man from Sežana Maura camoranesija, who left his mark on the Tabor bench.

When the former long-time Italian representative of Argentinean roots, who can even boast the title of world champion from 2006, and for many years also impressed in the jersey of Turin’s Juventus, first drew 1: 1 in Domžale, and then in the second match in Ljudski vrt with 4: 1 blown away Bravo, began to applaud even those skeptics who were previously detained.

Then followed a draw against Celje with 2: 2, then a painful, new defeat in Sežana against Tabor with 1: 3, and before the national team break an unconvincing draw against Olimpija (1: 1) and Camoranesi’s status among the fans changed quickly. After a convincing defeat in the friendly match against Graz’s Sturm with 0: 3, which Maribor played last week, there were more and more critics, so many were eagerly waiting for what would happen in the first match after a two-week national team break.

Victory. And that, at least in terms of results, is very convincing. Maribor defeated the returnees in the first league with 4: 0 and came to the most convincing victory this season. Logically, after the match, coach Camoranesi was satisfied. No wonder, as he talked about his team going in the right direction even after the last, poorer results. Now, of course, he is even more convinced that he is doing well.

The coach of Maribor can also be satisfied because Rudi Požeg Vancaš proved himself with a goal and an assist, whose true image would come in handy for the purple team.

Satisfied mainly because he saw the team

“We saw what we wanted to see. An even greater degree of intensity and aggression on our part. A team that played at a higher pace than before and thus played the whole match. We can be very pleased with what was shown. I am especially happy for the professional staff and team, “Camoranesi said after the match in Sežana.

“I’m glad we didn’t concede a goal. When that’s the case, you increase your chances of success. After conceding a goal, you have to use twice as much power to win. I’m happy that we kept the net intact. I saw the team on the pitch. The direction is right. Now it is important that we continue to work and progress, “added the coach of Maribor.

Camoranesi was relieved, after three matches he only came to victory

No time for euphoria. Far from it.

“The result doesn’t change anything. We still have 29 laps ahead of us. This is the path we want to build to make our story positive. I’ve seen positive things. A team that has the desire. We who work with the team every day will this match helped with important lessons, “Camoranesi added after a convincing victory, after which, of course, there is no room for euphoria.

Last but not least, Maribor is until the 62nd minute, when Rudi Požeg Vancaš with a Eurogoal he took care of increasing the lead to 2: 0, led by only one goal and decided the match only in the last third of the game.

Master goal of Rudi Požega Vancaš:

It is also necessary to take into account the fact that Gorica is currently at the bottom of the championship standings, as well as the fact that Maribor has regularly beaten Novogorica in recent years. He has recorded nine victories in the last nine matches.

The people of Maribor will be at work again on Tuesday, when they will compete against the second league team Velenje’s Rudar in the cup competition. In the championship, they will play a home game against Koper on Saturday.
