Both coaches leaves now, Johansson is leading Rostov Don , meanwhile Vasile is the headcoach of CSM Bucuresti. Johansson has already announced one month earlier on his Instagram that at end of the year his job is finished in Montenegro, but the Montenegrin federation chose another solution.

Kim Rasmussen is known for his capacity to jumping in to the difficult tasks and his club gave also their support for the Dame. Rasmussen has already worked with Poland, leading them twice to WCh semifinals in 2013 and 2015. He has also worked as Hungarian headcoach between 2016 – 2019 with less success.
