Zenit Kazan and Trefl Gdansk played one of the most exciting games in the CEV Champions League over the past few years.

 

The Russian side had to play the golden set to knock out the Polish side.

 “As for the technical faults, we played shamelessly badly, with a huge number of serving errors. I think it is all about psychology. We do not train less, the players are experienced, but the pressure is really high. We showed strong character. Such victories will be beneficial for the team,” says Vladimir Alekno, head coach of Zenit Kazan.

After such a match I want to thank all the mothers of my players, as they gave birth and brought up such good athletes. I think it is the least you can say after such a brilliant performance. I think that today we made a good thing for Volleyball in Poland. We showed to Europe and to the world that Poland has great teams. Of course, my players made great things; they played hard, played with all energy that they have. We showed really good Volleyball. It was an amazing match and I am very happy for the Polish fans from Gdansk that very energetically supported us from the stands. This season we play pretty well in the Champions League. Unfortunately, we are not so good in the national championship of Poland. Champions League matches are very energy-consuming, you play hard against such teams as Zenit KAZAN and you have to go strong in the national championship. That’s challenging. That is the only thing I am not happy about this season. When you have an opportunity to show your level, which we had in match against Zenit, we did it,” says Andrea Anastasi, head coach of Trefl Gdansk.

TUR W: Brankica Mihajlovic – “I couldn’t reject Fenerbahce, especially coach Terzic”

Like many other clubs in Turkey, Fenerbahce is in great financial trouble. Therefore, Fenerbahce is asking donations from its fans. Yet, It is able to sign many top players. It must be magic. Congratulations anyway, Mihajlovic is really a star player. She is expected to contribute more than Bricio. Reply
