The main reason for the termination of cooperation is by both sides especially the saturation of the relationship between the players and the head coach, which for sure is a consequence of competing in three competitions at the same time.

Coach Gašper Okorn left a great mark at Petrol Olimpija especially in the 2016/17 season, when he returned the national championship trophy to Ljubljana after eight years. Petrol Olimpija won also the cup trophy last season and before the beginning of this season also celebrated the Super Cup trophy.

The new Petrol Olimpija senior team’s head coach is experienced Slovenian coach – 52-year old Zoran Martić, who will coach the team already in the next round of the ABA League. Coach Martić agreed on cooperation with Petrol Olimpija until the end of the season. In the regional competition, he has already coached the teams like Petrol Olimpija, Budućnost VOLI, MZT Skopje Aerodrom and Krka before.

Zoran Martić zamenjal Okorna na klopi Petrol Olimpije

Vodstvo Petrol Olimpije in trener Gašper Okorn sta se odločila za sporazumno prekinitev pogodbe. Zamenjal ga bo Zoran Martić.
Kot glavni razlog za predčasno prekinitev sodelovanja obe strani navajata predvsem preveliko nasičenost v odnosih med igralci in glavnim trenerjem, kar je zagotovo posledica nastopanja v treh tekmovanjih.

Trener Gašper Okorn je v Petrol Olimpiji pustil velik pečat predvsem v lanski sezoni 2016/2017, saj je po osmih letih skupaj s sodelavci in igralci vrnil naslov državnega prvaka v Ljubljano. Petrol Olimpija je v pretekli sezoni osvojila tudi pokalno lovoriko, pred začetkom sezone 2017/2018 pa so se navijači veselili tudi naslova Super pokalnih zmagovalcev Slovenije.

Novi glavni trener članske ekipe Petrol Olimpije je z današnjim dnem postal izkušeni slovenski trener 52 – letni Zoran Martić, ki bo vodil ekipo že v prihodnjem kolu Lige ABA. Trener Martić je s Petrol Olimpijo sklenil pogodbo do konca tekmovalne sezone

2017/2018, v preteklosti pa je v regionalnem tekmovanju že vodil moštva Petrol Olimpije, Budućnosti VOLI, MZT Skopje Aerodroma in Krke.
