Bulgaria is the fourth country that rejected Simon Robertlandy in his attempt to become the citizen of this country, which would provide for him the national team volleyball.

 

In September last year, Simon Robertlandy applied for the Bulgarian passport as he could become a member of their national team.

However, according to 24chasa.bg, the Bulgarian authorities have rejected his request. In an interview for the Brazilian media, Simon explained how many countries rejected him, saying that he won’t give up.

I wanted to change my citizenship, I was looking for an alternative, I did a lot on this matter. It still has not happened but I won’t give up. I anyone would like to watch me in their national team, I am available. I tried first in Italy, but the matter of naturalization of Osmanany Juantorena was on and my process did not develop. In Argentina, I still do not understand why the process was interrupted. And finally, Canada, I went through all the procedures, but eventually, the Canadians thought about it, leaving me without explanation,” explains Simon.

The decision of the Bulgarian authorities was explained by the fact that two years are needed to get the permission to play for the national team and since Simon will be 34 at that moment, he would not show adequate sports quality and would not be a major strengthening of Bulgaria's volleyball team.

The time is running out, and we are pretty much sure that his experience to any team will be significant even when he reaches 34...

He is chasing some EU passport or normal country. I think he started now, in 35 years after going around the world and collecting good contracts. How when he has a baby he wants to get normal country passport. Too late... Or he can make the same way some of his Cuban friends players in Italy did: GET MERRIED for Italian girl and everything will be fixed! Only problem is in 35, you are no more interested to any club...

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
