The following players have made it to the list for the beginning of the preparatory period: Jug, Bergsen, Pridgar, Milec, Mutavčić, Mitrović, Uskoković, Obreht, Klampfer, Sikošek, Koderman, Vrhovec, Makoumbou, Repas, Pihler, Antolin, Gorenak, Maher, Lorber, Kotnik, Žugelj, Alvir, Požeg Vancaš, Kronaveter, Sellouki, Šturm, Mudrinski, Tavares, Sirk and Vipotnik.
There will be no fresh faces during the introductory part of the preparatory period: compared to the end of autumn, Tavares, Pihler, Mutavčić and Mahler have made it back to the team (with Pihler and Mahler as well as Žugelj, continuing to practice according to an individual programme). Antolin is back from being on loan in Beltinci, while two newbies (Klampfer and Lorber) have also joined the team.
Since Voloder is currently in the process of concluding a lucrative transfer contract, he was not present at the beginning of the preparatory period; also missing were Martinović, who was suspended from the club and is currently the subject of disciplinary proceedings, as well as Mudrinski and Koderman (due to illness).
The team will spend its first working week in Ljudski vrt before heading to Turkey on 19 January.
