Nikola Grbić is to become the new manager of the Polish national team.
Soon we will know the name of the new coach of Polish volleyball players. Everything indicates that it will be the Serb Nikola Grbić.
According to the well-known Italian journalist Gian Luca Pasini, Grbić and PZPS have reached an agreement. It is the Serb who will succeed Vital Heynen as the coach of the Polish national team. The 48-year-old, currently working at Sir Safety Perugia, is set to sign a contract for the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

Grbić was number one on the list of PZPS president Sebastian Świderski. This was not changed by the position of the president of Perugia, Gino Sirci, who did not want to agree to the fact that the 48-year-old should work for his club and the Polish national team at the same time. It looks like he had to relent.
The names of the new team selectors will be announced on January 12 during the away meeting of the PZPS board in Gliwice.
Grbić is one of the most famous and titled volleyball players of his generation. As quarterback he won the Champions League twice, was the champion of Italy and Russia. With the representation of Yugoslavia, he won the gold of the European championship and the Olympic gold. He has been working as a trainer since 2014. He led, inter alia, the representation of Serbia and Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle, with whom he won the Champions League in 2021.
