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

5794 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."

European League Pools determined, prize money increased

Re: @Axe The decision who will be a member of World League should be based on quality and results, not a subjective invitation for reasons that have nothing to do with sports. Unfortunately, FIVB completely lost compass with their desire to experiment without any reason.

Tours player Wounembaina victim of racial insults from Olympiacos fans, French VF urges CEV to react! (VIDEO)

I was in the stadium right were the supposed racist screams took place. We just booed before the service just like we always do, maybe a little bit louder since it was the end of the set. The player must have misunderstoond the sound or he is not used to play in this atmoshere. The refferies were closer to the fans than the player so they would have heard. Now the Tours just trying to avoid their players punishment and get more fans for the rematch or even get Olympiakos disqualified as they cant do this in court. Accusing someone as a racist is a great deal and i dont accept to be called one. Reply
