PlusLiga’s Czarni Radom pulled off its first move of the transfer window by extending setter Dejan Vincic‘s contract through 2020. Although Radom didn’t make this year’s playoffs, the 32-year-old Slovenian national teamer had a successful enough debut season to warrant him an extension. Here is what the team’s coach, Robert Prygiel, had to say of the news (Siatka.org):
“I am very happy that Dejan wants to continue his volleyball career in our club. This proves that he appreciates the organizational and sporting quality of our team. We are convinced that his professional involvement and skills will translate into even better sports results in the upcoming season.”
Dejan Vincic was likewise very pleased about being able to spend two more year with his team:
“I am very happy and proud that I renewed my contract with Cerrad Czarny Radom, which will be valid for the next two years. I am happy that I will play in the best league in the world and I will be able to compete with the best teams. I look forward to the new challenges that await us next season. I hope that the goals we set will be achieved. I am glad that I will stay in a club that is very well organized, and from this place I would like to thank the fans and everyone in the club for the support this season and the confidence they gave me.”
Dejan Vincic has all the attributes of a modern type of very athletic setters, which is very coveted by teams worldwide: he is 6’7″ tall and able to block at over 11 feet, thus allowing teams more flexible defensive schemes.
