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.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
