The Croatian goalkeeper of the “Two-Headed of the North” spoke to the website “sportske.jutarnji” of his homeland and spoke in the best words, not only about PAOK, but also about his presence in Thessaloniki.
“At PAOK I am satisfied. I enjoy Thessaloniki, it’s a beautiful city, Greece is a wonderful country to live in and the club is wonderful”, were his typical words.
Regarding his participation as a starter, he replied: “It is important for my career that I am a starter. I hope we continue positively.”
Regarding PAOK’s ambitions, he commented: “It is too early to talk about it now, because only five rounds have been played, the season has just started. Of course, our fans definitely want great things from us, they hope for victories, successes. It is normal for PAOK to have ambitions. Finally, I wouldn’t go to Thessaloniki if the club didn’t have ambitions. I want to fight for trophies. But to emphasize that this season, my club decided to create and assemble a team. We have, one might say, quite a young team, with many young players. The team is really renewed. It takes some time for us all to click together in the best possible way.”
Also, Dominik Kotarski mentioned the exclusion from Levski Sofias: “It was a big shock for us, we didn’t expect it. We are a new team, we haven’t trained yet, so it showed in these two games against the Bulgarians. It was pretty painful, but we kept our heads up, didn’t sink and kept going. We agreed to think about it more, take it one game at a time, try to get points. And here we are right now, in second place. We all believe we are ready for great things because we are quality. But time will tell everything. I wouldn’t like to make predictions at the start of the season, but, yes, we have ambitions.”
Finally, for PAOK fans, he asserted: “There is definitely madness in the stands. It’s hard to even describe it. You have to experience it, feel the atmosphere, which is wonderful. I knew before I came to PAOK what kind of passionate fans this club has, what kind of support it provides, but it’s different when you come and experience it. It’s a special experience, it’s a pleasure to play in front of such fans as ours. I made a great move by going to PAOK. It was a big step forward for me. Compared to Gorica, it is a very big step up. I believe in myself and I’m happy.”
