French Women’s volleyball powerhouse RC Cannes parted ways with their captain.



A 27-year-old Serbian receiver Sanja Bursać is no longer a member of RC Cannes. She has worn the jersey of the French club for the three consecutive seasons of which she was a captain in the last two. In 2016/17, Bursać made 11.6 points per game.

Besides Serbian receiver, there were two more departures from RC Cannes. Japanese libero Kotoki Zayasu left the club after being loaned by Hisamitsu Springs, while Slovenian middle blocker Sara Hutinski joined Italian Serie A1 newcomers Lardini Filottrano.

As for signings, RC Cannes brought Angie Bland, a Belgian middle blocker who won French league with ASPTT Mulhouse last season, Ljiljana Ranković, Serbian receiver from Le Cannet, prospect opposite Héléna Cazaute from Béziers Volley, and coach Riccardo Marchesi from Italian Division 2 team Battistelli SG Marignano.

RC Cannes also extended contract with Ukrainian receiver Nadiia Kodola.
