Slobodan Kovač has ceased to perform the role of the head coach of the 2021/22 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship semi-finalists PGE Skra Bełchatów.
Skra informed that Kovač is no longer at the helm of the club. The Serbian expert became the head coach of the Bełchatów side before the ongoing PlusLiga season.
He joined the Polish powerhouse right after the European Championship when he was still in command of the Serbia National Team. Under Kovač’s leadership, Skra reached the semi-finals of the national league playoffs (finishing 3rd in the regular season) but got eliminated from Jastrzębski Węgiel. In the Polish Cup, the team was eliminated in the 8th finals, while in the CEV Cup they also reached the semi-finals and got kicked out by France’s Tours.
The Skra management considered these unsatisfactory results and decided to part ways with Kovač, it was stressed in the nite on the club’s website.
