Eliodor Voica takes over Romanian men’s handball team

Stiinta Bacau head coach Eliodor Voica has taken over the men’s national handball team, GSP informs.

“I believe there will be a lot of work to do, however it won’t be just the coach’s work. The national team belongs to all Romanians and I believe the clubs’ players and head coaches can contribute just as much. Everybody has to get involved. I want to talk to the national team players because to me the first problem seems to be their lack of desire to play for the national team. I won’t talk about the national anthem now, but I’m just going to tell them this: we’re Romanians and we all have to fight for Romania. I don’t consider myself such an evolved coach as to have nothing else to learn and to afford coaching the national team alone. Stiinta Bacau is evolving and we have to go forward. I believe that continuing to work at the club, in order to learn as much as possible, will be good for the national team too,” Voica pointed out.

Former national head coach Vasile Stanga resigned after Romania was defeated by Belarus and failed to qualify for the World Cup 2013 playoffs. Vlad Caba, Stefan Constantin and Leonard Bibirig were the other contenders for the position of national team head coach.
