Kolman emphasizes the great potential of the Slovenian women’s soccer team

The new coach of the women’s football team, Saša Kolman, emphasized the great potential that the team has. He will make his debut on the bench this Friday, when Slovenia starts the competition in the League of Nations B.

Kolman, who replaced Borut Jarac, met his protégés for the first time at today’s training at Brdo pri Kranje. After four days of preparation, the Slovenian women will play against the Czech Republic in Krško on Friday at 4 p.m. In the League of Nations, Belarus and Bosnia and Herzegovina are also in the group.

The first assistant will be Nuša LadinekWinning is our main goal, I don’t know how to do anything else. I want actresses to think like that too. But until the end of the year, this part of the League of Nations will be important for getting to know me, so that I can get a picture. We have a young team, the potential is very high and I am sure that the girls can give even more. I know some of them from seminars, I also watched a few matches and was pleasantly surprised, I’m really looking forward to work,” said Kolman at the press conference, who chose coach Nuša Ladinek as his first assistant. His assistant will also be his friend and former national team member Matej Mavrič Rožič, former goalkeeper Mladen Dabanovič, a member of the golden Slovenian generation, will be the coach of the goalkeepers.

A colorful resumeThe 39-year-old Kolman has a varied coaching resume. After his playing career (he played for Tolmin, Gorica, Primorje, Nafta, as well as in the Faroe Islands, namely in the position defender) also worked abroad for 15 years. Before assuming the duties of a selector, he already worked as a head coach in Nova Gorica, and was also the head coach in Australia, where he led the youth and then the team members South Melbourne. In 2019, he took over the duties of head of the football academy of the famous Real Madrid in the United Arab Emirates.

Spora refuses to commentHe had to leave the UAE due to the epidemic, was unemployed for a while, and then came to the Football Association of Slovenia, where he has been employed as a professional assistant for coaching training until now. As is known, the previous coach Borut Jarc resigned after the national team’s women warned of the bad situation in the national team in an open letter. Saša Kolman refuses to comment on the dispute:I learned about everything from the media and it would be wrong for me to comment on it now. I want us to turn over a new leaf and focus on further work as a team.”
