In a recent social media post, Mislav Oršić shared that he is finally back on the field after almost four months since his knee injury. This is a positive sign for his fans and supporters. The Croatian national team player had a tough time last season, with no luck in the past year. However, he is determined to turn things around and make the most of his opportunity at Trabzonspor.
Unfortunately, Nenad Bjelica, who insisted on Oršić’s arrival, is no longer sitting on the bench of the Turkish first league team. This change in management could impact Oršić’s opportunity to play. Following the departure of the Croatian coach, other players like Filip Benković and Tonio Teklić have also faced challenges. Benković was previously a standard first-team player but has now been cemented on the bench, while Teklić only changes position between the bench and the stands. It seems that coming to a particular club because of the coach can have its drawbacks.
The uncertain status of Oršić and his fellow Croatian players in Trabzonspor is further complicated by the fact that the club is performing better after Bjelica’s departure. In the last four games, they have registered three victories and a draw, and this improvement in performance raises questions about what plans, if any, the new coach Abdullah Avci has for Oršić.
