Montenegro NF encourages applications from coaches interested in leading men’s national team


Article Tue, Nov 9 2021

After Veljko Basic announced his resignation a few weeks ago following a very disappointing performance at this year’s EuroVolley, the Volleyball Federation of Montenegro (OSCG) has now started the recruitment process of a new head coach to lead their men’s national team.

Any candidates interested in this role shall send their applications – in Montenegrin or English – to konkurs@oscg.me by December 1, 2021 at the very latest.

The applicants should provide:

  • A detailed CV / resume
  • A motivational letter
  • A review and assessment of the national team’s potential – both current and future
  • Their consent for the processing of personal data in conjunction with the application process.

The men’s national team of Montenegro have made back-to-back EuroVolley appearances in 2019 and 2021. However, after almost reaching the knockout stage at their EuroVolley premiere in 2019, they lost five matches in a row in this year’s competition in Ostrava – thus failing to replicate or even improve their success from 2019. Montenegro’s only international title since the country’s independence in 2006 came in 2014 – when they beat Greece in the finals of the CEV European League.
