Chinese outside hitter Zhu Ting, a one-time Olympic Games winner and probably the most popular female Volleyball player in the world at the moment, still did not choose in which club she will continue her career. One thing is sure, she will play in her home country...

 

Sohu reported that tthree teams in China are battling for Zhu’s signature for the next season after she parted ways with the Turkish side VakifBank in order to better prepare for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. These teams are Beijing, Tianjin and Guangdong. And it seems logical knowing that these three sides, plus Shanghai, are only clubs in the Chinese Super League that have budgets to cover a transfer of such a player like Zhu. Shanghai are not in contention for the signature of the Rio Olympics MVP given that they already hired a foreign duo, which means that Zhu would not have enough room to be the main attacking option.

Recall that before moving to VakifBank in 2016, Zhu defended the colors of Henan, who were far from the top teams in the Super League last season.

As for the trio of clubs that battles for hiring Zhu, according to Sohu, Tianjin and Guangdong have the most chances from the point of view of the lineups they currently have. That is because Beijing have signed an American outside hitter Bartsch and kept the country’s national team member Liu Xiaotong who is playing on the same position as Zhu. Beijing also kept opposite hitter and another China national team player Zeng Chunlei. It is obvious how crowded it will be in Beijing next season in terms of who will get the most balls in the attack.

Tianjin might have an upper hand in acquiring Zhu given that the club is based in the birthplace of China head coach Lang Ping. This means that the expert would have a chance to make sure on Zhu's shape on regular basis.

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

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... 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

Re: @Piker
Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply
