After 01.07. the current coach Dragan Salapura has left the club to move to a new club, the board of the club, after evaluating all the possibilities and offers, has decided to give the opportunity to our young member. The Executive Committee concluded that we should work on a long-term solution, namely to create our own professional staff, as a commitment for the future. For this we have decided to give priority to our member and player, who has the will and wants to continue
playing volleyball and coaching. The emphasis of our club’s work has always been on young people, and therefore also in this situation.

He has been a member of the club since the end of 2012, that is, from the beginning. He is a standard part of the senior team. He passed through all the categories of the club and together with the club he was champion of 2 HOL west 3 times, he played 2 times 1/8 finals of the Croatian Cup. He has also been the former manager’s right hand man for the past 3 years, and has gained knowledge that will surely be useful to him in his new job.
