De Giorgi was named as Poland coach in December.

He took over from Frenchman Stephane Antiga, whose contract was not renewed after the Polish squad failed to win a medal at the Rio Olympics last year.

The head of Poland's volleyball association, Jacek Kasprzyk, announced that the new coach would be a Pole. He did not say who was in the running to take over the job.
