The American center-forward Alex Obert is the first reinforcement for Jug Dubrovnik in this summer’s transfer window.
Obert (29) arrives in Dubrovnik from Ydriakos, the third-placed team in the 2019/20 Greek League. He was one of Ydriakos’s best scorers in the previous season.
Alex Obert graduated from the Univerity of Pacific. The 2013 World League Super Final was his first major event with Team USA. The Americans won the 4th place at that competition.
He was a part of Team USA at the Olympic Games in Rio, where his team finished in 10th place. Obert won two gold medals at the Pan American Games (2015 and 2019) and silver in the 2016 World League. He scored ten goals at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima. He competed at the World Championships four times (2013, 2015, 2017, 2019).
Obert will replace Luka Lozina, who went in the reverse direction. He will continue his career in Greece. After winning the national title with Jug, he moved to Vouliagmeni.
Besides Lozina, Marko Macan left Jug (went to Waspo Hannover). Two players – Luka Loncar and Toni Popadic – renewed their contracts.
