What a trade in Russian Superliga! Grozer to Belogorie, Zhigalov to Lokomotiv


2192 1

The Russian men’s volleyball clubs Belogorie Belgorod and Lokomotiv Novosibirsk traded opposites!


Belogorie and Lokomotiv, the 2017/18 Russian men’s volleyball championship Superliga sides, exchanged opposites for the finish of the season. Belogorie got themselves German Georg Grozer and sent Maksim Zhigalov in the opposite direction!

Looking at the statistics, Belogorie benefited more from the trade since Grozer is the 6the best scorer of Superliga at the moment with 322 points while Zhigalov is the 84th with 95 points. Grozer was the most efficient at the very beginning of the season, in September.

Grozer has returned to the place in which he made some of his finest successes on a club level. The Germany national team bomber used to compete for Belogorie from 2012 to 2015, winning the championship of Russia one time (2013 Cup of Russia two times (2012, 2013), Supercup of Russia two times (2013, 2014) and, as an icing on a cake, Grozer won the 2014 CEV Champions League and 2014 FIVB Club World Championship.

As for Zhigalov, he took part in winning the Russian championship in 2013, being the backup for Grozer. Good displays in Belogorie recommended him to Russia national team with whom he seized the gold medal in the 2017 CEV European Championship.

TUR W: Ognejnovic to replace Nootsara in Fenerbahce!?

If Tomkom is kept for next season (though that seems unlikely in my opinion). Fenerbache should think of getting one of her younger NT member as a receiver/wing spiker back up. Even though they aren't as tall as their European counter part, they can receive well and attack too. I'm sure they would be cheaper to higher than most other European options or are they? lol...And they already have a connection with Nootsara, so maybe they can play some fast balls every now and then to score a few quick points too.
