Federico Coppitelli is set to become the new head coach of Osijek, signing a two-year deal.

The HNL season starts later than usual this year, with the first round scheduled for August 3. However, due to European commitments, Croatian clubs don't have much time to rest. Preparations are already starting next week, and some clubs still don't have a head coach. Hajduk is in a particularly difficult situation, having lost Ivan Jurić at the last moment, while Osijek has finalized everything with an Italian expert.

Transfer insider Nicolo Schira claims that the White-Blues have chosen their new head coach, and as previously speculated, it is Federico Coppitelli. Schira reports that Coppitelli is on the verge of signing a two-year contract with Osijek, valid until the summer of 2026, and it appears to be a done deal.

Osijek announced last week that they would be introducing their new coach, and a press conference is scheduled for June 12, where it will be officially confirmed that the Italian coach is taking over. Last year, Coppitelli won the Primavera, the Italian youth league, with the significant underdog Lecce.

He has shown his ability to work with young players, which will be his task in Osijek – building a young team with a mix of experience and quality.
