Christoph Freund:

Roko has done exceptionally well already in his short time with us. He has performed well both with FC Liefering and the Youth League team, and has scored goals. I am sure that these were just the first steps of his development, as along with the talent and a great attitude, he has a really good mentality. He will be able to show all that for us in the future, and we are already looking forward to that!

Roko Simic:

I feel really happy here in Salzburg by now, and I have settled in well. The most important thing though is that I am getting on well with my new team and the football here already. I know that I am capable of even more. I am therefore really pleased to have extended my contract as that gives me confidence and certainty.
