Serbian expert Nikola Matijašević took over FYRO Macedonia men’s volleyball national team.

 

A 65-year-old Serbian expert Nikola Matijašević was appointed FYRO Macedonia head coach with a goal to take them to the 2019 CEV European Championship. This means that Macedonian federation parted ways with Ljubomir Travica who led them in the 2018 CEV European Silver League.

Matijašević built his coaching career mostly in France as he spent a total of 13 years as a coach there.

He was at the helm of Beauvais Oise UC from 2001 to 2006. During this period, they passed the way from Division 3 to the top flight.

After that, Matijašević took over Tunisian side Espérance sportive de Tunis in 2007/08 and won the national championship and national Super cup.

He spent the next season in Latvian SK Cēsis before returning to France.

Matijašević led Chaumont Volley-Ball 52 Haute Marne from 2009/2014 and helped them get the promotion to Ligue A in 2013. Finally, he was appointed Rennes Volley 35 coach in 2014 and is currently at their helm. Matijašević’s best success with this club was the first place in the Ligue A regular season in 2015/16 and silver medal in the league and national cup the same season.

When it comes to national teams, before Macedonia, he was the head coach of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro.

TUR W: VakıfBank and Eczacıbaşı extend their brutal winning streaks

Sonja Newcombe's transfer to Eczacibasi was hopeless. She is very ineffective in attack. In the match against PTT Spor didn't finish 6 balls in attack. For 2 sets she didn't score any points.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Re: @Direktor De Cecco doesn't have hitters like Juantorean, Leal, Simon. Leon and Atanasijevic are not enough. Rychlicki is already a good opposite, will only grow in the next few years to become 1st class.
I am not sure if you noticed that two Perugia starters (Lanza and Podrascanin) were benched in the 4th set. Lube is just too good, they are the best in the world right now.

Re: @former_player
Agree on that, they could try getting Toniutti or Marouf, better choices in my opinion that De Cecco. Lube won a few days ago because of De Cecco's bad decisions, Perugia attackers were in much better mood that Lube's. Reply
