NEW YEAR'S INTERVIEW: Fernando Hernández - "I want to be recognized among the best players in the world"

6152 0

Fernando HERNÁNDEZ RAMOS is currently the second best scorer of the Italian Men's Volleyball Serie A1 with 363 points in 17 matches (5.5 per set). He has only 4 points less than Giulio Sabbi and if he continues with good performance in the second part of the season, he will achieve his goal in 2017, which is to be the best scorer in the league.

  

We had the honor and pleasure to talk with this great Cuban athlete before the New Year's break.

What do you prefer, Japanese V-league or Italian?

"I prefer the Italian league."

What is the difference between Cuban, Japanese and Italian league?

"The Italian league, no disrespect to the Japanese, is on higher level and is very similar to the Cuban."

What can you tell us about LPR Piacenza? You have the oldest team in Serie A1...

"It is a team with great volleyball tradition, who achieved good results in previous years. I hope that we will keep the high-level game it deserves."

What is your goal this season?

"I would like to win title and, individually, to be the top scorer and the best server in the league."

For which national team would you like to play, and why?

"Cuban, because there is nothing more beautiful than to represent my country at the most beautiful place in which I have played, which is called the 'Coliseo de la Ciudad Deportiva', located in Havana."

Can you imagine Cuban National team if ALL players would return to the team? How would this line-up look?

"If I imagine it, we would be a team feared by all and with a big responsibility since the expectations would be very big, like to be the number 1 in all the competitions. But you always need to work hard to get the first place."

If we go back to the past, would you do the same thing again - club career before national team? And why?

"It is a difficult question because under agreements between the FCVB (Cuban federation) and FIVB (international Volleyball Federation) you can only play as a professional. If the FCVB is the owner of the contract then you need to leave the national team and wait two years to play as a professional."

What does Cuban players have that other players don't?

"I would not say that we are different from other players in the world, we only do what we love with the heart."

What is your goal in career?

"I want to be recognized among the best players in the world and I really want to win an Olympic medal."

In which club you would like to play one day?

"More than thinking about a great team, I would like to be the champion of the Italian league and Italian Cup. And be in a place where I'm happy, doing what I love most which is to play volleyball."

And for the end - do you have a favorite teammate?

"Hierrezuelo, because we are brothers and we play together for a long time."

Are you sure Leon is 23?!?! In Cuba everything is possible... Reply

Brazil and China in 2018 Montreux Volley Masters

It's a relatively small tournament, but it's become very traditional. I love it. It'll be a great 'warm-up' for the World Championship. Reply

I would count on it.
If they can lock Leon, Russell and Atanasijevic in for the next 3 to 4 years or more this club can go after a World Title year after year. All 3 of those guys are 23-26 years old and are only going to get better.
WOW . This could be a power shift in leagues Reply
