There weren’t many new faces to be seen at today’s training start of SV Guntamatic. Left-back Roko Jurisic, newly signed from Rijeka (Croatia), completed his first practice session with his new club. There is also a new face in the support team in Simon Goigitzer. Goigitzer will be responsible for the video analysis and part of the scouting. The 25-year-old was most recently under contract at SV Horn as an assistant coach.

From the Young Vikings, Tizian-Valentino Scharmer (midfield), Valentin Akrap (forward), Diego Madritsch (midfield) and Belmin Beganovic (right winger) are initially training with the pros. Marcel Ziegl is fit again after his knee operation in autumn, Kingsley Michael should be able to fully return to team training later this week after a foot injury. Nikola Stosic is working on his comeback after tearing his cruciate ligament, but he won’t do his first sessions with the team until the training camp in Turkey (January 17th to 24th) at the earliest. Striker Robin Ungerath, who moved to Ried from Burghausen a year ago and has only played 22 minutes since then, will leave the club. Discussions have also been held with other players with whom the club no longer plans in the spring. “But it is clear that these players are full members of the team as long as they are under contract in Ried,” said sporting director Wolfgang Fiala.

Interview with sports director Wolfgang Fiala

“I’m very happy with the first training session, we’re happy that we were able to train on natural grass,” said coach Christian Heinle after the first practice session of the calendar year. The analysis of the autumn season has shown that the main thing is to find solutions to get in front of the opposing goal with more dynamism. “We are on the right track, talks are being held with potential candidates for the offensive. It’s important that by signing left-back Jurisic we now have the option of using Philipp Pomer more offensively,” said Heinle. When asked why he thinks SV Ried will stay up in the Bundesliga again this year, the 37-year-old from Grieskirchner replied: “Working in the team and in the club is productive, we have already taken the first positive steps. We are on a good way. If we improve our game and get one or two reinforcements, then we’ll stay in the league. We are all firmly convinced of that.”

Offensive players are still committed

“We’re still looking for one or two attacking players. We didn’t do well in the finals in the fall. We want to improve here. On the one hand, this is about the way of playing, on the other hand, about the staff,” emphasized SV Ried sports director Wolfgang Fiala. Fiala commented on the goals for the season as follows: “There is one goal in the championship. That we avoid a constellation like last year. That means that we want to be in the league in the bag before the last matchday. In the cup we are in the quarterfinals, where a difficult task awaits us at the Wiener Sportclub. But it is also clear that we want to make it to the final in the cup, just like in 2022.”

“I’m a Rieder boy”

“I really enjoyed training,” said goalkeeper Samuel Sahin-Radlinger. The 30-year-old, whose contract expires in the summer, is likely to have aroused interest in some clubs due to his strong performances in the Innviertel. At the moment he is not wasting any thoughts on changing clubs. “I assume that I will play in Ried in spring. There is currently no real offer. I like being there and I feel good. I’m a Rieder boy,” said Sahin-Radlinger.

On January 14th at 2 p.m., Rieder will play the first preparatory game of the year. Opponent is second division club Blau-Weiss Linz, the game takes place on the artificial turf in the old stadium (without spectators). During the training camp in Belek, Turkey from January 17th to 24th, Rieder will test against Novi Pazar (Serbia) and NS Mura (Slovenia). On Saturday, January 28th at 11 a.m. there will be a friendly against Vorwarts Steyr (artificial turf, old stadium). On the same day, the other half of the squad plays against St. Pölten at 2:30 p.m. The season kicks off on Saturday, February 4th, with the ÖFB Cup quarter-final away at the Wiener Sportclub. In the championship, Ried then welcomes TSV Hartberg in the Josko Arena on Sunday, February 12th.

“I’m very optimistic”

Training Kiebitz Gerald Lackerbauer, a loyal fan of SV Ried for more than 30 years and co-founder of the Schwarz-Grün fan club, is confident about the spring season: “I’m looking forward to it starting again soon. First with the cup game and then with the Bundesliga home game against Hartberg, which will soon be a very important one. But I am very optimistic that we will no longer be in acute danger of relegation as soon as possible,” said Lackerbauer on the sidelines of the first SV Ried training session this year.
