Igor Kolakovic hails Iranian brave players
Tehran, Iran – Former Iran national volleyball team head coach Igor Kolakovic has lauded the Iranian players.
The Montenegrin coach led Iran for three years and parted ways with the team after cancellation of the 2020 VNL and Olympic Games.
“I have good memories from Iran however I had some difficult times in the country but I want to forget them,” Kolakovic said.
“Iran is a beautiful country and has kind people. I have to say I enjoyed working with brave and clever players in Iran. They keep the fighting spirit alive in the competitions,” he added.
“I am satisfied with my performance in Iran because we won the country’s first medal in the history. Iran claimed a bronze medal at the 2017 edition of the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Champions Cup. We proved several times we are the best team in Asia. I should also say we prepare the young players for the future of Iran,” Kolakovic concluded.
He has been recently appointed as head coach of Aluron Virtu Zawiercie.
