Veljko Petković has recently signed a contract with Espadon Szczecin, but he has not done it for money...

 

Przegladsportowy.pl writes that experienced setter accepted the offer of Espadon Szczecinto to help his friend, team head coach Milan Simojlović. The club needed another setter after parting ways with Georgi Bratoev, so Simojlović called Petković, who accepted to come to Poland.

"I cannot talk about the exact amount, but his contract is symbolic," said Espadon Szczecin president Radoslaw Rybak for przegladsportowy.pl.

Petković will turn 40 next January, while in his long and rich volleyball career he became the Olympic champion with Yugoslavia back in 2000.

SRB M: Stefana Veljkovic announces pregnancy

She wont miss the Olympics. She is already 4 months pregnant and will give birth early February. Enough time to recovery. Reply

FRA W: RC Cannes sign outside hitter from Texas University

Cannes' roster for next season doesn't seem to be THAT focused on young talent IMO. Don't see a difference to other clubs in this regard. Their main problem seems to be the decreasing interest of people in the club, a lack of (new) supporters to attend their home matches. Reply
