Neptunes WPSC have announced that they have appointed Aleksandar Ciric as their new head coach.
Ciric replaces Dorian Pisani who stepped down from his post on Wednesday after the Balluta Bay team failed to win an honour during the 2023 season.
The Serbian coach is a familiar face with Neptunes WPSC as during his playing career he spent two seasons with the Maltese waterpolo club in 2012 and 2013.
“Neptunes WPSC is delighted to announce the appointment of Aleksandar Ćirić as head coach of the senior team,” the club said in a statement.
“‘Ciro’ needs no introduction to the Neptunes faithful, having played an instrumental role with the team as a Neptunes senior team player during the 2012 and 2013 seasons, winning multiple trophies in the process, including two Summer League titles.
“Ciro was more recently coach of Neptunes’ under 20/s and 17/s squads, as well as head coach of Marsaxlokk, leading them to the First Division play-off finals, as well as winning the First Division Knock-Out.
“On an international level, he was also head coach of the Iranian national team as well as the European powerhouse Olympiacos Women’s Water Polo Team, winning multiple trophies including the Greek domestic double and the Champions League.
“A big welcome to Ciro to whom we wish the best of luck and success at the helm of Neptunes WPSC.”
