The timing is, to say the least remarkable. Just for Club play-off 1 aftrapt, let Leko understand that after this season for looking at. In a subtle way, out of respect for the board after the opportunity that he got them to a top club coach and the confidence after ‘Operation Clean Hands’. “My future? Or I now have a new contract or not, I have already made my decision. I'm going to focus on our goal. And then we'll see.”
Words in different ways zoú be able to interpret - because his English is not flawless - but questioning his entourage brought the confirmation. Leko has for himself already decided that he will say goodbye to Club. Even in the case of a second consecutive national championship.
New calls come too late, according to Leko, who in the beginning of this season, a proposal of an additional year plus loonsopslag next to him put down. Club planned the work of his coach after the play-off 1 re-evaluate, but that is outside the Croatian counted. “Should I, after two years here now even let's see if I can have a good or bad trainer? Everyone knows what a coach Ivan Leko. That you could the past few seasons of observing at STVV and Club. Those games show my qualities.”
The board refused formally to respond, and all to focus on the next ten play-off 1 duels.
History on 19 may?
Leko start to his final weeks in Jan Breydel. All that changes nothing on the ambition of coach and club. Leko hopes still to write a history, by the Club for the first time in more than 40 years, two times in a row champion. “May 19 - exactly the day that my twin daughters are time-barred - could be a nice day.” Press no defect, but that wouldn't bother him. “I expect a strong Club. We have everything in order once again to become a champion, and go for the title. Some of them will be that arrogant. But if you say that you're happy to be in play-off 1, they wonder where our confidence is. I say what I think.”
that's after yesterday once again.
