From Sweden to Pustertal: New striker for St. Georgen

After a very difficult start to the season, Oberliga team St. Georgen is getting better and better. Now the Jergina have strengthened themselves with an old friend - at least for the time being.

Although winter is approaching, the sun is slowly but surely returning to St. Georgen - at least when it comes to football. With three wins from the last four games, Kurt Volgger's team is clearly showing an upward trend; the 3-0 win against Obermais on Sunday was the best performance of the season so far. Alexandre Koré scored the final score. A name that should be familiar to those familiar with the major league scene.


The French attacker had already set up his tent in the Pustertal at the beginning of 2020, but due to the corona pandemic he only played a handful of games for St. Georgen and then said goodbye to the big, wide world of football. Koré, who has already played in Malta and Lithuania during his career, was most recently in action in the fourth Swedish league. The powerful striker wore the jersey of Kiruna FF, Sweden's northernmost football team.

On probation until Christmas

“The championship there ended at the end of October. Koré subsequently contacted some St. Georgen players and flirted with returning to us,” says Georg Brugger, the Jergina’s sporting creator. “So we decided to bring him back, but for now only on a trial basis until Christmas. We’ll see how Koré does and then we might extend it.”

In his first appearance on Sunday against Obermais, the globetrotter only needed ten minutes to score his first goal. However, it is not clear whether he will be able to play in the away game against Bozner FC on Sunday. “He took a hit and hasn’t been able to train this week. I don’t know if he’ll be fit for Sunday,” said Georg Brugger.
