José Roberto Guimarães “Zé Roberto” announced his retirement from coaching Brazil Women’s Volleyball national team!

 

Zé Roberto is currently engaged with Brazil national team in the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, which came just after his team secured promotion to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games via FIVB International Qualifier. And the event in the capital of Japan is going to be the last tournament in which legendary expert will be at the helm of the “Seleção”.

In a live interview for the TV show Bem, Amigos!, a 3-time Olympic Games winner (one-time with Brazil Men and twice with Brazil Women) Zé Roberto revealed that the ongoing Pan American Games will be his last as Brazil head coach. Furthermore, the expert revealed that in one year, at the end of the Tokyo Olympic Games, he will no longer be the head coach of the national team.

“For sure it will be my last Olympics. I’ve been in the Women’s team for 16 years. It’s time for another coach to take this job. We’re investing a lot in our base. We have a very good generation coming for 2024 and 2028, at least 10 or 12 girls with 1.90m or more. We’ve never had a generation of this stature and quality,” Zé Roberto stated.

Zé Roberto has a suggestion about his replacement on Brazil Women bench.

“I’d like Paulinho (Paulo Coco) to take over. He knows a lot about Volleyball, but it’s up to the Federation to appoint the new coach,” he added.

OQT M: Party in Bari - Italy wreck Serbia to punch last Tokyo ticket from International Qualifier

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
