1156 0

Zhana Todorova has ended one more season in Maritza's jersey with a championship gold in Bulgaria.

 

The 22-year old libero has made a short analysis of the season 2018/2019.

Maritza have won the championship title again. Was it more difficult compared to the previous season?

I think It was even easier than in previous years. The hardest thing was to switch between the Champions league and domestic championship matches.“

How would you rate your performances in the season 2018/2019?

We were like a big family and really had so much fun this season. It finished so quickly that we were sad at the end. We didn’t lose a game in our championship. About the Champions league matches, I’m a little bit disappointed because we didn’t win the first match with Bezier in France.“

Maritza played the CEV Champions League group stage. What are your impressions after playing the games against Vakifbank?

I always tell that CL matches are my favorite and I see how the team gives more than 100 percent in each match. It is an irreplaceable experience for our team to participate in this tournament. Vakifbank are one of the best teams in the world. Not only they have such great players and staff but the quality of organization and professionalism in each level.“

The national season is approaching - Do you think Bulgaria is able to achieve the goals?

In my dreams, I see Bulgaria making the final six of the VNL, but we have to walk our way step by step. The teams we are going to face are playing at a very high level and we have to play without pressure, to gain valuable experience and self-confidence and keep faith in our direction. I think the firlt goal is to remain in VNL.“

What are your plans for the season 2019/2020?

I have time to think about that. First thing is to stay without injuries.“

ITA M: Trentino to hire bombastic duo for next season – Lucarelli and Abdel Aziz!

Re: @former_player
Those are excellent points. I feel for Kovacevic and admire him as a player, but he disappointed in big matches in the playoffs last year and has been struggling with injuries and motivation this year it seems. Russell has become a leading force for this Trentino team this year.
The Perugia - Russell return is an interesting thought if Perugia has enough foreigner room. I am curious who will set that team.
What is going on in Milan? Very quiet

Re: @Suisse It would be interesting to see how would Nimir play in a team where he is not getting the majority of balls. Your comment assumes that Trentino will get rid of MVP of last Europian championship and best outside hitter of Italian league last season, Kovacevic.
Lanza is definitely the weak spot, Perugia needs 1st class outside hitter. Maybe Russell will go back

If these rumors are true then Trentino HAS to do everything to keep Lisinac and Russell. Having top 3 level players in middle (Lisinac), opposite (Nimir) and outside hitter (Russell) positions would be enough to push past Lube. Lucarelli is very very good still not the player he was before the Achilles injury. His experience is top notch.
Perugia has to make a play to get another top outside hitter to replace Lanza who is a weakspot.
Modena may not be as complete.
Milan????
Things are getting interesting. Reply
