The Russian men’s volleyball Superliga giants Belogorie Belgorod appointed Serbian Slobodan Kovač as their new coach.

 

The Serbian expert Slobodan Kovač was appointed coach of Belogorie Belgorod after spending the last season and a half at the helm of Halkbank, Turkey, with whom he won two championship titles. He clinched the first one after taking over the club in the mid-season when it was eighth-placed in the standings. Halkbank leadership pondered over renewing the deal with Kovač but, after conducting internal elections, they decided not to continue with him.

So far in his club coaching career, a 50-year-old Kovač won two championship titles in Serbia with SPD MOK Radnički d.o.o. Kragujevac while he led Sir Safety Conad Perugia to Italian SuperLega playoff finals twice but failed to clinch the gold medal.

He is currently at the helm of Slovenia men’s national team. Previously, he coached Iran men’s national team with whom he won Asian Games once.

As a player, he became the 2000 Sydney gold medalist with the national team of Yugoslavia.

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply
