The senior team of Cedevita Olimpija will enter the 2024/25 competitive season with a new Head Coach.

“As the previous season just concluded, I would like to congratulate the club and the team on winning the domestic title. It’s always great to end a season on a positive note. As the summer approaches, it’s time to turn our minds towards the new season, and new challenges that await us. We are very glad to announce that Zvezdan Mitrović, a coach with great experience and winning mentality, will be the new Head Coach of Cedevita Olimpija. Mitrović’s passion for basketball, but also his approach towards the players, are just some of the things, that make him the best person for taking on a role of the Head Coach at our club. He knows what it takes for a team to perform great at the highest level of European basketball, and also has experience with winning the EuroCup back when he was in Monaco. We are lucky to have Mitrović on our bench, and we are looking forward to this summer of building a competitive team ahead of the new season,” said Chechu Mulero, the new Sports Director of Cedevita Olimpija, who took on his new role at the end of the 2023/24 season. He replaced Vlado Ilievski as the Sports Director of Cedevita Olimpija.

“I am excited with the signing of the contract with Cedevita Olimpija, there is a good feeling, enthusiasm and motivation. At the same time, I am returning to the regional league, which I met 20 years ago, as an assistant coach in Budućnost, and of course to the EuroCup, where I left a mark. We have to put together a quality team, mainly of quality players, guys with good character, who would make a good result with their commitment, their attitude, and, in the end also win, for the audience to return to the hall, to watch basketball and to enjoy basketball, and that’s the main goal,” said Zvezdan Mitrović upon anounncement of joining Cedevita Olimpija. “The priority is the selection of quality people, with good character, who are connected by good chemistry, and this is how a good result can be achieved. I invite the fans to come and support us in as large a number as possible. On behalf of myself and my coaching staff, I can guarantee that we will give our best, and that we will try to bring Cedevita Olimpija back to winning ways, especially in the European competition. We will do everything for us to be competitive and interesting for the fans to come to the games and enjoy our game, and at the same time, that they encourage us and that we are in this together. I guarantee a good attitude, and with good support and organization, we will be able to get good results.”

Between 2002 and 2007 and in the 2012/12 season, he led Khimik, Krivbas between 2007 and 2011, and Budivelnyk in the 2011/12 season. A short period at Azovmash followed, and then in 2015 he sat on the Monaco bench for the first time, where he remained in the first period until 2018. He then took over Asvel in the same year, and in 2020 he returned to Monaco. He managed Galatasaray in the 2023/24 season until the end of January 2024.
