Return of a familiar face
“I would like to thank the club for giving me another opportunity.”
There is a new member in our squad. Or should we say an old one? Namely, Ljudski vrt has seen the return of a familiar face. Dare Vršič is back in purple and has signed a two-year contract.

“Dare, welcome back to football and to NK Maribor. There’s no need to dwell on things or to preach. I hope he’ll find his place in our new story as soon as possible and that he’ll show what we all expect of him. It’s going to be a long season and, come December, we will have played 36 matches. Despite turning a new page, we will need all the talent and inspiration we can get,” explained the Sports Director Zlatko Zahovič.

What did Dare Vršič say upon his return: “After a few unpleasant months without football, I am very happy that the club has given me another opportunity. I will do everything in my power to help the team achieve success. We all make wrong decisions in life. I’ve made mine, which is why I’m especially grateful to the club for this deal. I’m proud of what they have achieved thus far. Despite being without a club for a while, I did not sit on my hands. As far as my fitness is concerned, there should be no problems. However, it’s hard to say how long it will take me to get to the level that my teammates are at after playing 13 tremendous matches. I will do my best to return to the pitch as soon as possible.”
