ITA M: Nimir Abdelaziz confirms - "I can't wait to join Milano"


3712 2

One of the top scorers of the French volleyball league Nimir Abdelaziz has confirmed for a Poitiers' website that he is going to play in Italy next season.


Without Poitiers, I would still be an ordinary player. They believed in me, without them, I would not have been able to return to Italy. There I played two years as the second setter in a team. I will go back now much stronger and I'll be playing as an attacker. Milan is an ambitious club. Andrea Giani is a coach and I can’t wait to be there,” says Abdelaziz.

Poitiers now has to find a replacement for Dutch attacker. The first signing of the team would be a receiver, Baptiste Geiler. The official website of the team also adds that Jan Zimmerman, a setter of United Volleys Rhein/Main, is close to sign a contract.

Three out of six players from the starting line-up are probably going to stay. Frederic Barais and Novica Bjelica are going to extend the contracts. Andri Aganits is still considering the contract renewal offer.

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
