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

6473 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."

Mia Jerkov for WoV - "I am still evaluating my offers"

Re: @rivers
Actually, you are wrong. It was known that Kim would leave FB after they finished the league at the first place. I remembered her statements after the final matches, she gave speeches about her leaving. It was not a last moment decision and Jerkov signed with FB in the summer season, so it was a planned transfer. Jerkov came to FB because, unsuccessful jan de brant and jerkov had played together in Bursa for two seasons. He thought that she could be successful at this level because he doesnt know anything about volleyball and we have seen the result! There were plenty of turkish players who were at the same level with jerkov but she was chosen instead of these girls because unsuccesful jan de brant wished that she would manage at this level. Do you understand better now!? Reply

POL W: Poland without Wolosz in VNL

Re: @Michelea. Dani Lins with the best reception in the world couldn't even help Brazil out of the china quarterfinal. LMAO. She's an overrated setter. No one would sign her in Europe. A true definition of local. Wolosz is better than her and Roberta is the best brazilian setter of the present.
