RUS M: Sergey Shlyapnikov has announced the roster of Russia... Where is Poletaev?

2085 1

The new head coach of Russia decided to call 21 players...


 

Sergey Shlyapnikov has announced the names of the players on which he will count for the 2017 World League tournament. As you can see below, there are no some well-known names such are Dmitriy Musersky, Maxim Mikhailov, Alexander Butko, Artem Volvich...

Still the biggest surprise is that there is no Viktor Poletaev on the list. One of the best young players in Europe was the top scorer of the 2016/17 Russian Championship Regular Season, still at the end of the season he suffered injury due to which he missed the start of the Playoffs.

Perhaps the injury is the reason Shlyapnikov decided not to call Poletaev...  

This is the roster of Russia:

Setters: Sergey Antipkin (Dinamo Moscow), Pavel Pankov (Kuzbass Kemerovo), Dmitry Kovalev (Ural Ufa)

Opposites: Konstantin Bakun (Dinamo Moscow), Maxim Zhigalov (Belogorie Belgorod), Alexander Chefranov (Gazprom Yugra), Alexander Kimerov (Fakel)

Outside-Hitters: Alexey Spiridonov (Enisey Krasnoyarsk), Egor Kliuka, Dmitry Volkov (Fakel), Dmitriy Ilinykh, Denis Biryukov (Dinamo Moscow), Egor Feoktistov (Ural Ufa)

Middle Blockers: Ilyas Kurkaev (Lokomotiv Novosibirsk), Vadim Likhosherstov Ilya Vlasov (Fakel), Dmitry Shcherbinin, Igor Filippov (Dinamo Moscow)

Libero: Valentin Krotkov (Zenit Kazan), Artem Zelenkov (Dinamo-LO), Roman Martynyuk (Belogorye Belgorod).

TURNAROUND: FIVB awards last wild card for 2017 Club World Championship to Dinamo!

It is all about entrance 'fees': because Moscow has more money than Conegliano and the last couldn't or didn't want to pay those 100.000 US $, Moscow took over. If this is the right way to distribute the (too?) many (4) wildcards, everybody should decide on his own. Reply

She will leave because Nesli, even though she has years, must play and she didn't play so much last season. That's the main reason Reply
