FRA M: Ngapeth has a question for the FIVB

2826 4

The French international Earvin Ngapeth is still regreting for missing the first chance to qualify for the Olympic Games.


He got mad because his national team had to play two matches in virtually 12 hours during the Olympic selection.

“I have only one question for the FIVB. In your opinion, is it normal that after the match with Slovenia we went to bed only at 3 a.m., and already at 3 o’clock the next day we had to play the main match of the four-year cycle with Poland?” Ngapeth writes on Instagram.

Recall that France didn't manage to qualify for the Olympic Games but they will have another chance in January 2020.

um...did he protest as loudly during Italian tournaments in the past? really, if Poland was playing this tournament in France, we would have as unreasonable schedule as they had and, we too, would complain, but what does it matter? FIVB accepted the schedule, so Ngapeth can only blame his own federation for not fighting for this tournament's organization rights more.

Organisation of OG Qualification in Poland reminds me WCh2014 as far as a timetable, referees.. It is enough to compare all schedules of home NT with other qualification groups.. Poland NT is probably currently the strongest NT in men volleyball in the world, and it does not need any such a trick... Of course, it indicates also the role of FIVB, which is orientated mainly on a profit...

QAT M: Milos Nikic moves to Al Rayyan SC

Great player, one of the main stars from the last Modena team who won the Italian Championship. Played in Italy, Russia, Poland, Turkey, Argentina. Due to ACL injury, he had to pause for 1 year. Good luck Milos, come back next season where you belong... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply
