The reigning European Women’s Volleyball champions Igor Gorgonzola Novara closed the opposite hitter’s department for the 2019/20 season.


Novara engaged Slovenia national team opposite hitter Iza Mlakar to complete the roster for the 2019/20 when it comes to this position. A 23-year-old player, the 2017 FIVB U23 World Championship Best Opposite Hitter, will compete for the place in the starting line-up with Serbian Jovana Brakočević-Canzian, who came to the club earlier.

Novara will be Mlakar’s first club abroad. She was playing in Nova KBM Branik in the last several seasons, winning the Slovenian Championship five times, Slovenian Cup four times and MEVZA (Middle European Cup) Cup two times.Since 2011, when he was only 16 years old, Mlakar has been an integral part of her home country’s senior national team.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
