He led the team to the Olympics, he will take over the Polish club. A great comeback in the PlusLiga

Asseco Resovia Rzeszów announced what all fans were waiting for. After a few months’ break, the renowned coach who gave ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle an important triumph is returning to PlusLiga.

Asseco Resovia Rzeszow can talk about a partial success last season. On the one hand, they won the CEV Cup, joining Projekt Warsaw as European Cup winners. On the other hand, they lost to Piotr Graban’s team in the fight for the PlusLiga bronze medal, which means they won’t play in the Champions League in the fall. Rzeszow hasn’t spared money on transfers for years. One of them has been announced just now. But it’s not about the player.

Asseco Resovia Rzeszów has signed a contract with the former ZAKSA coach

Tuomas Sammelvuo is a recognized figure in the world of volleyball. The current coach of the Canadian national team is preparing for the Olympic Games. Three years ago in Tokyo, he led the Russian Olympic Committee team to the vice-championship. Now he does not have the potential he had years ago, although last year his team showed that it can threaten anyone.

The Finn started the previous club season as the coach of Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle. The coach, who led the team from the Opole province to its third victory in the Champions League, lost his job after a series of poor results in the PlusLiga. The Koziołki were struggling with huge health problems. Despite this, the authorities decided to fire the coach, choosing his previous assistant, Adam Swaczyna.

It has been said for several months that the new employer of the former French, Italian, Russian and Polish league volleyball player will be Resovia. The team from Podpromie said goodbye to Giampaolo Medei some time ago. The Italian decided to accept an offer from Cucine Lube Civitanova, which is close to him.

Tuomas Sammelvuo can boast numerous medals as a player and coach. As a coach, he has only celebrated triumphs in Russia and Poland. He parted ways with the eastern team after the outbreak of war in Ukraine.
