CEV EuroVolley 2019 Men

Podgorica, Montenegro, August 13, 2019. There is exactly a month to go until the historic maiden appearance of Montenegro’s Volleyball team at EuroVolley.  After completing the first phase of preparations in Pljevlja, head coach Veljko Bašić and his players are currently training in Bijelo Polje, where they will remain until August 24, when they move to Podgorica.

“We have entered the third week of preparation. We have gone through the most difficult period of physical fitness and I can say that we did a very good job. We feel good, we are all eager to work hard and look forward to our first participation in such a big competition as EuroVolley,” says Nikola Lakčevic.

The hardest part, however, is already behind the Montenegrin Volleyball players, and what is most interesting to them, friendly matches will follow upon their arrival in Podgorica.

Montenegro will play two matches against Greece, then two against Iran, on whose bench sits the Montenegrin coach Igor Kolakovic. The training and friendly matches will all take place at the Verde Complex.

“A more technical stage of the preparation is now awaiting us, and soon friendly matches will help us achieve the best form for EuroVolley. We are excited, very motivated and convinced that we deserved to be there. I hope we will achieve our goal, which is to make it through the pool phase,” concludes the Montenegrin libero.

Montenegro will play their pool matches in Rotterdam and Amsterdam against hosts the Netherlands, reigning world champions Poland, as well as the national teams of Czech Republic, Estonia and Ukraine.
