Nikola Grbić became the new manager of the Polish national team. In an interview with sport.pl, the former coach of Biało-Czerwonych Vital Heynen praised this move. “A logical choice,” said the Belgian.
On Wednesday, the PZPS authorities announced the results of competitions for the positions of selectors of the Polish national team for women and men. The activists were chosen by Nikola Grbić for the gentlemen and Stefano Lavarini for the ladies’ staff. It is they who are supposed to make our staff achieve further successes.
Vital Heynen, who previously was the coach of the White and Reds, is satisfied with this choice of activists. During his tenure, Poles won many medals, including gold for the world championship.
– It’s a very good decision. A logical choice, perhaps the best one at the moment. Sebastian Świderski hired a coach who was very successful last year, who knows Polish volleyball – Heynen said in an interview with sport.pl.
– He is accepted by the players, or at least I had the impression that those who played in ZAKSA had a really great contact with him. You have everything in this movement to be successful, assessed Heynen.
The Belgian was the coach of the Polish national team until the end of the European championship in September, in which the Poles won the bronze medal. Let us add that Grbić signed a contract with PZPS valid for the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024.
