Volleyball legend deserved this! Paulo Roberto Freitas “Bebeto”, who passed away a year and a half ago, got a book devoted to his career and life, that will become the legacy to all current and future enthusiasts of this sports discipline.

 

The book contains 256 pages of interviews of Bebeto, which he gave to the journalist Rafael Valesi between November and December 2017 (released in 2018, while Bebeto was still alive) but also some unreleased parts of Bebeto’s testimonials regarding his life that the coach wrote by himself and which existed only as scripts. There were about 20 hours of recorded and unpublished testimonials.

The book was named “What I Have Lived“ (O Que Eu Vivi) and have a preface written by Alexandre Kalil, who was Bebeto’s associate in Clube Atlético Mineiro - football club to which Bebeto served at the end of his life, and Jorge Barros – a former head coach in Brazil National Team youth categories.

Bebeto was a head coach of Brazil Men in the 1980s and is considered as the man who paved the way to future generations of the national team who made much success to the country in decades to come. Later, he took over the bench Italy Men and won the 1998 FIVB World Championship. Bebeto suddenly died in March 2018, at the age of 68.

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.
