He was perhaps the most wanted free agent on the European market after a highly successful season. Felipe Perrone led Jug Dubrovnik to the titles in Croatia as well as the Champions League win at the Final Six tournament in Budapest early June. Right before the Rio Olympics the club and Perrone confirmed they had agreed on a 2-year extension keeping the world’s best player of last season in Dubrovnik for 2 more seasons, much to the delight both player and club as well as the club’s fans.
In addition Jug also managed to keep centre forward Josip Vrlic, also playing for Brazil in Rio, with the club although for 1 more season. The Croatia-born experienced one of the best years of his career last season and was eager to extend his stay with the Champions League winner.
