EXCLUSIVE FOR WoV: Saeid Marouf – “I will play in Paykan next season”

4575 0

One of the best setter in the world Saeid Marouf, the captain of Iranian national team, has confirmed for WorldofVolley where he’s going to play next season. We asked him, Europe or Paykan, he said:

 

Paykan 99 percent!”

Of course, we had to ask him about World League tournament.

We consider this tournament as preparations for the Olympic Games. We played tough and long tournament in Japan and we managed to qualify for Rio 2016. We were focused on that tournament, and this tournament we will play with a lot of players. I think we will finish this tournament in a good way” says Marouf.

At the end, we mentioned medals, but experienced setter was careful while talking about the most important volleyball tournament in 2016!

“Medals? It’s very hard to say it. It’s going to be our first appearance there but we will do our best to achieve good results. Nobody knows what will happen in the future,” concludes Marouf at the end of the interview.

Marouf and his volleyball army are currently in Belgrade, where they are trying to win some points and trying to reach World League Final 6.

Recall that setter was a member of Shardari Urmia in the last season.

She played for Atom Trefl Sopot (not Gdańsk). And Atom Trefl doesn't exist anymore. So she had to leave :) Reply

Fans, which volleyball rules you would change if you were in charge?

Re: @Axe in basketball it is quite easy to have a rather small off-bounds space, like 3 meters must be enough, because when the ball is out of bounds it is out of play. In volleyball it's not the case and if you watch volleyball alot you can see that despite the quite large space around the field, players are still getting hold back by commercial panels, sometimes directly behind it tables with people doing a job which is involved by the game. And it's not like lots of people can enjoy that same experience only a few hundreds of people maybe on the the first few front-rows and not the other thousands of people present there.
If the empty space between playing court and 'obstacles' will be enlarged then players might be more motivated to chase off-bound balls and save alot (almost) dozens more than that they mostly can do today. The seats of the audience don't even need to be further away from the playing field, just those commercial panels and benches with working people behind them pushed all the way back to the walls between the court and the seats. If you look at football (soccer if you're American) there is the audience even further away from the playing field even though it is the case that a ball out of bounds equals out of play too. There you never seem to have a decline of popularity of the game.
