The Russian men’s volleyball Superliga giants Belogorie Belgorod appointed Serbian Slobodan Kovač as their new coach.

 

The Serbian expert Slobodan Kovač was appointed coach of Belogorie Belgorod after spending the last season and a half at the helm of Halkbank, Turkey, with whom he won two championship titles. He clinched the first one after taking over the club in the mid-season when it was eighth-placed in the standings. Halkbank leadership pondered over renewing the deal with Kovač but, after conducting internal elections, they decided not to continue with him.

So far in his club coaching career, a 50-year-old Kovač won two championship titles in Serbia with SPD MOK Radnički d.o.o. Kragujevac while he led Sir Safety Conad Perugia to Italian SuperLega playoff finals twice but failed to clinch the gold medal.

He is currently at the helm of Slovenia men’s national team. Previously, he coached Iran men’s national team with whom he won Asian Games once.

As a player, he became the 2000 Sydney gold medalist with the national team of Yugoslavia.

TUR W: VakıfBank picking outside hitter for next season – Bosetti or Balkestein-Grothues?

Outside hitter? What about Zhu Ting and Kelsey Robinson? It would be crazy if they are leaving. Grothues is older and short. Robinson is a great, hardworking all around outside hitter and one of the best defender on the back court. Is Isabelle Haak a done deal at the opposite position? Reply
