In the winter break we decided to try and keep the squad together and strengthen the staff, we got our scouting department filled with 2 new scouts bringing the recruitment team to size of 4. The return from break started with the terrible news of Barten out for 3 weeks with a pulled calf musle., though with our games starting 2 week later he might not miss too many crucial games. We got rid of Kristian Glavas who was 32 and had made only 1 sub appearance for the club this season. We used that wage to get Stipe Vulikic on loan till the end of the season. We lost Mihovil Klapan who is a star midfielder for us to an end of season contract with Istra 1961. He was on 11k per year with us and we could not match the 30k that was offered to him. Towards the end of the transfer window we also sold off Vito Hitesi who was only on 2.4k/yr but was turning 22 and was not good enough to warrant a place in the first team.
One big issue I was facing now was that I was unable to renew any contracts of my players as they refused to sign saying it would be on inferior terms to what he already has. I am not sure what the issue is so if anyone know please let me kow.
In February 2023 we won 2 games and drew 1 to win another manager of the month. Its been quite a season so far and if we can keep up the momentum should win the league though Dynomo's B team is right up there with only a point separating the two of us.
We started march with a 1-1 draw vs our rivals Rudes but with Dynamo II drawing as well it was all to play for in the game against them. We had a narrow 1-0 win vs Dynamo II so we ended march as table toppers with 41 points from 17 games.
We have secured promotion with a 5-1 win vs Seveste and a 3-2 win vs Cibalia with 3 games to go. We end the season with a 5-0 win vs Dugopolje, a 1-0 loss vs Osijek II and a huge 6-2 win vs Inter Zapresic. In all we scored 53 points from 22 games with 16 wins,5 draws and 1 loss.
Dispite the results the board doesnt want to give me the chance at a National C license.
