And that is the main reason why Slobodan Kovac and Jastrzebski Wegiel agreed on the terms.

 

This is information we all know. However, we are bringing exclusive information about his discussions with JSW. Of course, the manager of Slobodan Kovac, Georges Matijasevic answered us the about the process of negotiations and the motivation of both parties to work together:

After staying without a head coach, Jastrzebski started searching for a replacement of the Italian coach Roberto Santilli. Their first choice from the beginning was Slobodan Kovac. We entered the negotiations and these talks were not that easy, but in the end, we agreed the terms because both parties were very motivated to work with each other. Kovac is happy with the roster because Jastrzebski have really quality players. When we talk about the national team contract since he is currently a coach of Serbia, Kovac is allowed to lead the club as well. The goals they set in front of him are medals in PlusLiga and to achieve the best possible results in the CEV Champions League. Also, Jastrzebski had several options for Santilli’s successor but Kovac’s recent gold medal at the EuroVolley and his experience with the clubs made the difference in the eyes of Jastrzebski,” explains Georges Matijasevic.

Slobodan Kovac is really an experienced coach since he worked in many national teams (Serbia, Slovenia, Iran) and clubs (Perugia, Halkbank, Belogorie, Radnicki Kragujevac) in a very successful way. With the Serbian national team he won the gold medal at the recent European Championship, while he was the champions of Turkey with Halkbank. 

We will see how far he can go with Jastrzebski Wegiel. It's going to be his first season in Plusliga.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
