Brazilian Angelo Vercesi took over Croatia’s women’s team in 2013, coaching them in their World Grand Prix debut last year where they finished third in Group 3. That differed from his time with Brazil’s women’s team from 2005 to 2006, as Brazil captured back-to-back World Grand Prix titles along with the 2005 Grand Champions Cup and South American Championship. Vercesi has coached club sides in Azerbaijan, Croatia, Italy and Brazil. His best finishes came with Italian club Scavolini Pesaro, where they won the 2008 Italian League and CEV Cup titles and the 2009 Italian Super Cup. Vercesi, who lives in Italy, took over as coach of women’s club team Volley 2002 Forli in 2015.
