The new head coach of the Russia Women’s Volleyball National Team will definitely be Zoran Terzić.
The famous Serbian expert Terzić is officially appointed as the head coach of the Russia Women’s National Team. In this position, he’ll replace Italian Sergio Busato, whose contract expired last year, on December 31. This way the saga of the arrival of a former titled head coach of the Serbia Women came to conclusion, going from the near-appointment and drop-off due to the international suspension of Russia’s professional volleyball activities to the official signature, announced by the country’s federation (VFV). The governing body of Russia’s volleyball said that the women’s national team will have a training camp in August despite being banned to participate in the FIVB Volleyball Nations League and the FIVB World Championship this year.
Terzić is familiar with working in Russia as he has already been at the helm of women’s sides Omichka (2012-2015) and Dinamo Moscow (2017/18). With the latter, he won the Superliga title (2018). In the last 20 years, Terzić commanded the women’s national team of his native country; his main achievements are 3 gold medals at the CEV European Championship (2011, 2017, 2019) and one gold medal at the FIVB World Championship (2018). A 2-time Best Head Coach by the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) will be allowed to perform a duel role, meaning he’ll remain in charge of Turkey’s Fenerbahçe Opet.
