The 2018/19 Greek Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff quarterfinalists Panathinaikos A.O. announced the start of the collaboration with Serbian opposite hitter Saša Starović.

 

A 30-year-old Serbian player Starović strengthened 18-time Greek champions Panathinaikos for the 2019/20 season, coming from the Russian side Yaroslavl Yaroslavich.

The opposite hitter has a great volleyball résumé and many titles. He has been a member of Serbia national team since 2007 and has become the 2011 CEV European Championship winner. On a club level, Starović won the CEV Challenge Cup once, Montenegrin Championship two times, and Italian Championship, Italian Super Cup and Greek Championship once each.

Actually, Starović returned to playing in Greek top division after two years as he defended the colors of P.A.O.K. in the 2016/17 season.

Earlier, Panathinaikos renewed with a teenage outside hitter Charalampos Andreopoulos, Danish setter Axel Jacobsen, middle blocker Panagiotis Pelekoudas, and head coach Dimitris Andreopoulos.

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

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.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
