Important questions, waiting for answers
By Konstantinos Nikolaos
On paper, he came to take the place of Valentin Roberges as a left stopper, but also as the new leader of the Apollon defense. The recommendations for him were very good, since they spoke of a quality player with experiences from the championship, Europe, the Norwegian national team, but also capable of playing in more than one position (many appearances as a left back).
The reason for Jørgen Sielvik, who counts only two appearances with the jersey of the Limassol team and while under Vladan Milojevic he only played as a substitute in the Serbian's debut with Karmiotissa. Along the way, he had remained on the bench both when Yurcevich was absent at the left end of the defense (Malekkidis was preferred), and when Ekpolos and Peiburns had to take a breather, with Adonis being the third in the hierarchy.
In addition, based on the official information, the injury of the 32-year-old footballer, who has been absent from the team of the “blue and white” for about a month…
In the last few days, however, he returned to a regular training program and it remains to be seen if he will return to the team against the National team, even taking time off from the team.
Apollonas presents weaknesses at the back and it is interesting to see if even with a delay Sielvik gets opportunities, justifying those who chose him. Until then, however, there will still be a big question mark over the Norwegian's value.
So, is he really that far behind initial expectations? Indeed, he can't flank the rest of the stoppers even as a substitute? Could it be that the reason he didn't play until now was purely a decision of Mr. Milojevic, who showed more trust in the other defenders?
So all this will be answered only when we see him in action, with him as we mentioned above to show himself ready to help…
