In 2012, Ivica Tucak was named Croatia’s head coach, succeeding Ratko Rudic. Tucak has guided Croatia to more than ten medals in major competitions since then. He had a long and successful playing career with a dozen different clubs.
Tucak will be facing big challenges in 2022. He will lead a rejuvenated Croatian team at two major tournaments. The season starts with the World Championships and culminates in Croatia, at the European Championships in Split.
Ivica Tucak’s Top 5 for 2021
1. Dusan Mandic (SRB)
Serbian National Player I Club: Pro Recco, Novi Beograd I Position: Right DriverWon the Champions League and gold in Tokyo. For me personally, definitely the most dominant player in the world.
2. Filip Filipovic (SRB)
Serbian National Player I Clubs: Szolnok, Olympiacos I Position: Right DriverOne of the most important elements of the Serbian team on their journey to Olympic gold.
3.Ioannis Fountulis (GRE)
Greek National Player I Club: FTC, Olympiacos I Position: Left DriverA fantastic player, especially an excellent attacker. He reached the Champions League and the Olympic final with his teams.
4. Felipe Perrone (ESP)
Spanish National Player I Clubs: Barceloneta I Position: Left DriverHe didn’t win a medal in Tokyo, but his position both in Spain and Barceloneta is always very dominant. In my opinion, Felipe always deserves a spot among TOP 5 in the world.
5. Maro Jokovic (CRO)
