The two-time French men’s volleyball champions Poitiers formalized the arrival of the Slovenia National Team middle blocker.


Alen Pajenk, who played the last two seasons in Poland’s Cerrad Enea Czarni Radom, joined Poitiers as the club’s last reinforcement for 2020/21.

The 34-year-old player is the long-time Slovenia National Team member (since 2008). After firstly passing through big clubs in his home country and winning three national titles and four national Cups (some with Merkur Maribor and some with ACH Volley Ljubljana), Pajenk moved to Italy where he won the Italian Championship and Supercup with Cucine Lube Civitanova. The last trophy that he lifted was for the winner of the Turkish Cup with Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta.

With Slovenia National Team, Pajenk won the CEV European League in 2015 and was named Best Server in the same competition four years prior to that. Last season with Czarni, he was averaging 7.5 points per game (53% attack) in PlusLiga.

SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

As far as I know,turks gave up on recruiting vargas due to her marriage with a woman.Maybe this is why rich İstanbul clubs don't hire Egonu.


However what I didn't understand until yesterday is, if fenerbahçe can tolerate such players with, say, unusual preferences, then why it didn't change Vargas with Egonu.Again why they hired a 2nd class player, Busa,but not a better player such as Stysiak, Herbots etc..

Terzic has never been Fenerbahçe coach but 7/24 serbian n. team coach.All his decisions, preferences,actions are always parallel with serbia n. team's interests,not with fener's.Fener has 3 foreign athletes,all serbs,coincidence? The club must send him immediately. Otherwise fenerbahçe remains doomed to be the 3rd-5th team in home,and to be defeated in CL by vakıfbank, eczacıbası and by the italian team which has Egonu (presently Imoco I think)

Actually the problem is not special to Terzic,but to trainers coaching 2 teams.a national team other than turkish team and a club team. Federation would better ban clubs to hire such coaches. Reply
