Ranko Perovic completed his second term as Primorac's head coach.
An experienced coach led Primorac on two occasions – between 2006 and 2011 and between 2021 and 2023. In 2009, he led Primorac to the title of the European champion, which was one of the biggest surprises in the Champions League history. He left Primorac in 2011 to become the head coach of Montenegro. Perovic guided the national team until 2015. The Montenegrins' most significant success in those four years was silver at the 2013 World Championships.
He returned to Primorac in 2021 and replaced Sandro Sukno, who took over Pro Recco. The Kotor-based team won the Montenegrin Cup in 2022, the club's first trophy after 12 years. Last season, Primorac was relegated to the A1 Regional League after it finished in 12th place in the Premier League and won 2nd place in the Montenegrin League and the Montenegrin Cup. Perovic's contract with Primorac expired in May and won't be renewed.
Zoran Maslovar will coach the team until further notice.
Brguljan returns after 12 years
At the same time, one rumor became true. Drasko Brguljan confirmed that he had signed a contract with Primorac.
The former captain of the national team of Montenegro started his career at Primorac and played for the Kotor-based club until 2011. In the following 12 years, he was in Hungary, playing for OSC Budapest and Vasas. Brguljan won the LEN Euro Cup with Vasas in the previous season. Now, he returns to Kotor.
Brguljan won a number of medals with Montenegro, including the mentioned silver at the 2013 Worlds, four medals at the European Championships (1 gold,2 silver, 1 bronze), four medals in the World League and played in the semifinals of the Olympic Games thrice.
Earlier this summer, centre-forward Nemanja Vico returned to Primorac
