EXCLUSIVE FOR WoV: Mousavi – “I had a dream to play in Italy, but…”

3423 0

Seyed Mousavi. One of the key members of the Iranian volleyball national team and true volleyball star has gladly accepted our interview request.

 

Mousavi revealed for WorldofVolley that he had a dream of playing in Europe, especially in Italy…

I had some dreams to come to Europe, especially in Italy. But, we are lucky to play in Iran because our teams pay us very good. Maybe I would play in Europe ten years ago, but not now as I’m 29 year old. Of course, there is less money than Iran. I don’t think about that” admits Mousavi.

Do you consider World League as a preparation for the Olympic Games?

This is like a friendly tournament. We consider it as preparation for the Olympic Games. But, our fans want us to win every match, they don’t like defeats. So, we have some kind of pressure even though our goal is to achieve good results in Rio. We have to play with this tournament with all the players.

Team and personal goals at the Olympic Games in Rio:

Team goal is to just to go to the Olympic Games, to play our game…But when we speak about my, personal goals, I want to win the gold in Rio! It’s going to be difficult, but I think that we have a chance. We proved it before. Our team has that capacity to compete for the first place,” explains Mousavi for WorldofVolley.

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.
