MZT split with Vukoičić, signed Martič

2. December 2013, 12:48

In only a couple of hours MZT made a significant change in the team. Coach Vlada Vukoičić left the club on Sunday's evening and the team will already greet his successor Zoran Martič a day later.

Vukoičić joined MZT Skopje Aerodrom before the beginning of the season as a guarantee for ambitious plans the club had in Eurocup and ABA League. But things didn't go according to the plan with MZT reaching only one victory so far in Europe (1-6) and is in the middle of the standings in the regional league (4-6). The decision was made after the latest ABA League defeat against Cibona but MZT immediately found his replacement in the Slovenian coach Zoran Martič, who was recently without the club and worked as a sport's commentator for the Slovenian Šport tv.

Martič has a long coaching history first in the Slovenian basketball and later abroad. He was for example at the head of the bench in Krka (2003/04), Budućnost (2004/05), APOEL Nicosia (2005/06), Pivovarna Laško, Helios, Khimik and Kormend, while between 2008 and 2010 he was an assistant coach in Union Olimpija. Martič was also the head-coach of the Slovenian U-20 National team, which won gold medal at the 2000 European Championship in Ohrid. "We agreed until teh end of this season," confirmed Martič, who will be present already at the Monday's evening practice.

MZT Skopje Aerodrom je v le nekaj urah opravil občutno spremembo v ekipi, že v nedeljo se je razšel s trenerjem Vlado Vukoičićem, takoj za tem pa se za sodelovanje dogovoril s Slovencem Zoranom Martičem.

Vukoičić se je MZT pdridružil pred sezono kot garancija za visoke ambicije v evropskem pokalu in ligi ABA, vendar stvari niso šel po načrtu, saj je MZT v Evropi dosegel le eno zmago (1-6), v regionalnem tekmovanju pa ima niz 4-6. Klub je odločitev sprejel po zadnjem porazu s Cibono, ko se je tudi dogovoril z Zoranom Martičem, ki je bil v zadnjih mesecih brez kluba in je delal kot strokovni komentator za športno televizijo Šport tv.

Martič ima dolgo trenersko zgodovino v slovenski košarki in na tujem. Med drugim je vodil Krko (2003/04), Budućnost (2004/05), APOEL iz Nikozije (2005/06), Pivovarno Laško, Helios, Khimik and Kormend, med letoma 2008 in 2010 je pomočnik pri Unionu Olimpiji. Martič je bil tudi selektor slovenske reprezentance do 20 let, ki je leta 2000 na EP na Ohridu osvojila zlato kolajno. "Dogovorili smo se do konca sezone," je potrdil Martič, ki bo prisoten že na ponedeljkovem večernem treningu.
