It is not official yet, but as some Iranian media write, separation between Slobodan Kovač and Iranian Volleyball Federation is only a matter of days.



Iranian Volleyball Federation is not satisfied with the work of Serbian expert for a while and it all culminated after the 2015 FIVB World Cup in Japan, where Iran showed disappointing performances. They finished 8th and didn’t qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games.

The President of Iranian Federation, Mohammad Reza Davarzani, has already announced that he will most probably sack Kovač, while the coach stated for our website that Iranian VF has a problem with his choice of assistants. Either way, Kovač is close to leave the bench of Iran.

Argentine Juan Manuel Cichello, the current head coach of Qatar and Italian Andrea Anastasi, the current coach of Polish team Lotos Trefl Gdańsk are main candidates to take charge of Iran, according to media in that country.
