Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle reported that the contract with Nikola Grbić was terminated at the request of the coach. 


During his stay in ZAKSA, Serbian coach won Polish Cup, two national Super Cups, he was the runner-up of the PlusLiga and the winner of the CEV Champions League, thus entering the history of Polish club volleyball. 

In December 2020, Nikola Grbić extended his contract and cooperation with ZAKSA for two more seasons. For personal reasons, the coach requested the termination of the contract by mutual agreement of both parties, and the club complied with the coach's request.  

"It is not an easy situation for us, but it was also a difficult decision for Nikola. In this case, financial issues or agreed terms were not important, but family issues, and that is why I have a lot of understanding” says Sebastian Świderski, President of Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle.


“ZAKSA as a club and Sebastian Świderski as president did everything to keep me here and that is one of the reasons why it was such a difficult decision. I have never had and probably will not have a better experience as a coach than what I had at ZAKSA. The conditions are perfect, I found “chemistry” with the staff and players - we had confidence in ourselves. Leaving it all away was really hard. But if I have to go back in words to why it happened - I'll say it’s for personal, family reasons. I explained to the president these reasons, we were always honest with each other, and so in this case. I must admit that I met with a great understanding, not about the decision to leave, but about the whole situation” said Nikola Grbić.

According to reliable information, we can expect official confirmation of the appointment of Nikola Grbić as the head coach of Sir Safety  Perugia soon.

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
