Macedonian champion Metalurg started with buying reinforcements for the new season. First two players on the list were Serbian goalkeeper Miroslav Kocić and Montenegrin back Vladan Lipovina. Two players were promoted in Skopje signing two-year contracts.
Club hopes both players will shine in the new season and help repeat club’s last season results in EHF Champions League with quarter-final participation, and retain trophy in domestic championship.
Miroslav Kocic will replace Rade Mijatovic as he left Skopje for Hungarian Csurgo and Vladan Lipovina (21) is on the other side coming back after one season in Spanish ASOBAL League. He was Spanish League's third best scorer and now he will play on the right back position along with Slovenian expert Renato Vugrinec.
