ITA M: Dragan Travica furious - "We make sacrifices so the clubs get rewards and we don’t get paid"

1950 1

The experienced setter Dragan Travica got angry with the Iranian team Shahrdari Urmia since this team didn't pay his salaries for almost two years.


He raised his voice, asking the FIVB and Iranian Volleyball Federation where are they now and what will they do regarding this case.

We are announcing the entire post:

Enough is enough! #Volleyball clubs must pay the players for their work! We train and play hard, we make sacrifices so the clubs get rewards. And we don’t get paid?! So unfair to be treated this way! Many players face this terrible situation!

Almost two years that Shahrdarai Urmia must pay me! 1 #FIVB decision, several letters and still nothing! 40% of Iranian clubs are under a FIVB sanction. Why the #VNL is organised in Iran as if nothing happens? Why I did not get any answer from the FIVB to my letters?

@fivbvolleyball: #BePartOfTheGame! Where are you?! What at are you doing against clubs not caring about your decisions and sanctions?

@irivf: you scream against @michalkubiak_13 but what do you do in this case?

That must change! #paytheplayers #FIVBmustprotectus #playersrights @acpv_official @avcvolley @cevolleyball #VNLMen,” writes Travica on his Instagram.

This is so disgusting when players are disrespected this way. Im sure there are quite a few former players who played in Greece who feel the same way. Clubs and federations need to be held accountable.

[@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

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply
