JoEbrima Jarju mentioned that he is not happy as his team’s main aim was to clinch a medal this season.
“Disappointment, our first objective is for the league and if that is not possible then we go for 2nd, or 3rd. it’s a bad season for the club.” Jarju mentioned
Paide drew 2-2 with Levadia and missed out the third place in the Estonian Premium Liiga.
After the game, the Alkamba Times spoke to goalkeeper Jarju who captained Paide thrice this season and he talked about the ups and downs of the season.
Jarju only missed four games due to injury and went on to play 35 games in all competitions keeping 13 clean sheets.
“Being the best goalkeeper last season was a good motivation knowing that I can do it and it solely depended on me. We had a very difficult season, but my performances didn’t drop and I contributed positively to our position in the table”
Paide saw managerial shuffles in May, but Jarju kept his position and went on to be named player of the month in June and July and named in the team of the month on four occasions.
“I had a good rapport with the previous coach (Karel Voolaid), always seeking ideas and we had an open discussion. Equally, when the new
coach (Ivan Stojkovic) came on board in May, we met and told me so many things, about my qualities that he wanted to use me, especially with the buildup phase. He showed me some things that I never knew about myself. ”
Jajru said he was impressive against Flora, Levadia and Kalev participated well in the games and had lots of saves with his best being in the home game against Nomme in the 2nd round.
There are a lot of rumours linking Jarju away from Paide but the goalkeeper will take a deserved break and see how things unfold.
