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.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

So Ebrar out and Haak will be replaced ? I suppose Ezcacibasi will respond, Kim is definately not in her league, i think Tijana need some partner, and Natalia is not the one. I still cant see Egonu moving from Italian league to Turkey, that must be some great payment to do so. Otherwise, i would like to see Brakocevic & Tijana in same club, no other option to respond to Vakif. Unless Natalia and Kim will push their game. Maybe Tijana should go to Novara, her season if nulled with this team. Reply

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

Thailand win title in Women’s Volleyball at SEA Games for 12th successive time

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply
