Piotr Gruszka took over Polish Men’s Volleyball powerhouse Asseco Resovia Rzeszów, who finished the season as the seventh-placed side in the top division, as the head coach for the next season.


 

Resovia announced that they have signed a two-year contract with Gruszka who will serve as the team’s head coach instead of the Romanian Gheorghe Crețu.

While being a player, Gruszka became the record holder in the number of matches played in Poland national team - from 1995 to 2011, he made 450 appearances. His biggest international success came in 2009 when he won the gold medal in the CEV European Championship. The 42-year-old Gruszka came to Resovia from GKS Katowice whom he coached in the last three seasons.

So far, Resovia hired setter Marcin Komenda from GKS Katowice and extended with the middle blocker Marcin Możdżonek and Australian libero Luke Perry.

They officially parted ways with the opposite hitter Jakub Jarosz, outside hitters - Mateusz Mika and Frenchman Thibault Rossard, setter Łukasz Kozub, middle blockers - American David Smith (went to ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle) and Dawid Dryja, and libero Mateusz Masłowski. The middle blocker Łukasz Perłowski retired.

These players are on the radar of Resovia for the 2019/20.
