After a 2 year break with the national team, Maja Ognjenović is back and will rejoin the team next week.
Coach Zoran Terzic confirms the return of his beloved setter who led Serbia to a silver medal 2 years ago at the 2016 Olympics.
‘We have talked and we have reached an agreement. She will be on the list for the World Championship and I expect her on July 23rd when we start with the preparations. There is no need to say her quality of play and how great of a person she is. Her experience is huge and I’m sure that the other girls will be thrilled with his return.”
With Maja’s return, we wonder who is going to cut – Ana Antonijevic or Bojana Zivkovic? These 2 setters competed at the VNL with a disappointing finish: 5th place.
In case you forgot, Maja last played for Serbia in 2016 at theh Rio Olympics but she still plays as an her professional athlete since then with Eczacibasi VitrA. The 34 year old has signed on to play for Russian club team Dinamo Moscow this coming season.
