Itas Trentino, last season’s Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists, finalized the agreement for the return of Mitar Djurić.


A 30-year-old Greek opposite hitter Djurić signed a one-year deal with the current FIVB Club World Championship winners Trentino. The Bosnian-born player will fight for the place in the line-up with Luca Vettori in the 2019/20 season.

Djurić has returned to Trentino after three years. This will be his third mandate in the Italian powerhouse knowing that he also defended its colors from 2011 to 2013. Djurić (his Greek name is Demétres Tsoúritz) so far made 133 appearances in Trentino’s jersey and scored 1,401 points. He won 7 trophies with the club: two FIVB Club World Championships, two national leagues and Cups, and one Italian Super Cup.

Interestingly, between 2011 and 2013, he performed the role of the middle blocker while in the 2015/16 season, he played as an opposite hitter, which was the position to which he was moved while playing in South Korea. Earlier in his career, Djurić was named three-time Greek Championship and one-time Greek Super Cup MVP.

Last season, Djurić spent playing in P.A.O.K. (Greece) and Poitiers (France).

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
