We will not watch one of the best players in the world at the upcoming 2019 CEV European men’s Volleyball Championship – Bartosz Kurek!

 

A day before the start of the 2019 EuroVolley, Poland National Team head coach Vital Heynen crossed out two players from the preliminary list: Bartosz Kurek and Bartosz Kwolek.

Although there were indications that world Volleyball superstar Kurek will play the continental championship, he was not included in the final roster by Heynen because has not yet reached the optimal form after a spinal injury, which he has been treating since April. The MVP of the last year’s FIVB World Championship also skipped the 2019 FIVB International Olympic Qualifier and 2019 FIVB Nations League but will likely be in the 25-player squad for the FIVB World Cup, which will be played in Japan, in October.

Heynen decided, unlike the Olympic Qualifier, to bring four outside hitters and four middle blockers and that is why Kwolek is not on the roster for EuroVolley.

EUROVOLLEY 2019 M: Vital Heynen’s surprise – makes 6 substitutions at once (VIDEO)

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@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
