Cedevita Zagreb brings back Aleksandar Petrovic

After unexpected resignation of Bozidar Maljkovic several days ago, Cedevita Zagreb appointed Aleksandar Petrovic as new Head coach.

Petrovic, 53, was head coach of Cedevita between 2010 and 2011, leading the club, in its debut Eurocup season, to a place in that competition’s semifinals.

If you ask me, pretty expected decision, even we heard a lot of coaching names connected to Cedevita zagreb as possible successors of Bozidar Maljkovic.

Petrovic started his coaching career in 1991 with Cibona Zagreb. After four seasons there, he also coached in Spain, leading Seville in the Euroleague, as well as in Poland and Italy.

Currently, Aleksandar Petrovic is Head coach of National team of Bosnia and Herzegovina and hopefully will remain at this position, as he brought a lot of positive things in Bosnia and Herzegovina National team.

Brother of late legendary player Drazen Petrovic, Aleksandar is coach with a pretty good experience and karma, and I am sure that he will do great job in Cedevita Zagreb.

Cedevita Zagreb invested a lot of money at the beginning of this season and so far it seems as the waste of money.

They didn’t start well in ABA Adriatic league as they have 6-4 score, and in Turkish Airlines Euroleague where they have 2-5 score.

However, it is tough goal for Aleksandar Petrovic to put Cedevita Zagreb back on the track, and I believe that he is able to do so.
