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.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
