Former Serbia National Team member Nikola Kovačević set off an Arabian adventure.

 

Veteran outside hitter Nikola Kovačević, whose sibling Uroš has just won the 2019 EuroVolley MVP award (and a gold medal with Serbia), moved to Saudi Arabia. The 36-year-old outside hitter will play for the country’s powerhouse Al Hilal.

The team based in Riyadh will be the 17th destination in his professional career. Last season, he performed for BKS Visła Bydgoszcz, Poland. Kovačević had a successful international career, winning the 2011 CEV European Championship in which he was named Best Receiver. He also collected one bronze medal in the FIVB World Championship, two bronze medals in the CEV EuroVolley and three silver and one bronze medal in the FIVB World League. On a club level, he won Serbian, Polish and Chinese Championship once each.

BRA M: So far so good for Cruzeiro – 2 wins in as many games

First things first, I know you will delete this coment, because this is a critic to WOV.. Sada doesn’t win big a long time... They lost Supercopa to Taubaté like they were juvenile team. Then they win first two games against low level teams and you write they are “ready to regain Superliga title”???? What kind of joke writer are you??? Reply

RUS W: Busato says he’ll call Kosheleva for national team preparations for Tokyo Olympics

The Russian team needs her, badly. She used to be one of the top attackers in the league. Even Zhu Ting paid her a huge compliment saying she contacts the ball at such heights thus making it hard to block her. Reply
