Friday, 31 March 2017

Raul Gonzales has been appointed new coach of the Macedonian men's handball team, replacing Lino Cervar in the post.

The Spanish coach is the current coach of Skopje-based club Vardar, which has qualified for this year's Champions League quarterfinals.

"I have enormous confidence in the new coach. Our main goal is to qualify for the 2018 European Championships in Croatia", said handball federation president Zivko Mukaetov.

Gonzales has signed a contract up to September 2020, but Mukaetov said the objective is to work with the Spaniard on the long run.

"I am proud to be Macedonia's national team coach. I will work hard, but the most important thing is to prepare for the next qualifier against Iceland in May", said Gonzales.

Gonzales is one of few foreign coaches in the country who mastered Macedonian very quickly after his arrival in the country.
