The lucrative proposal of the Russian team Zenit Saint-Petersburg to Wilfredo León caused some tectonic disturbances in the volleyball world. The player’s agent has confirmed these speculations!

 

Onet contacted León’s manager Andrzej Grzyb to see if the information of Zenit Saint-Petersburg’s mega offer, that was launched by Gian Luca Pasini, was true.

“Yes, we are in talks with Zenit-Kazan, Zenit Saint-Petersburg and Perugia. Proposals from Gazprom were made, but it’s too early to talk about it. I’m in Russia, meeting with representatives of all clubs that are interested. This is a normal process and, until it ends with Wilfredo accepting one of the options, every proposal is open. I can confirm that Zenit-Kazan are interested and Zenit-Saint Petersburg are very interested. Gazprom moved its headquarters to Saint-Petersburg. I talked with them, I’m in Moscow and I participate in all negotiations. Tuesday’s meeting ended so that all decisions will be made after Gazprom finalizes budgets and offers from clubs will be officially submitted in January,” Grzyb stated.

He added that the only team in Italy that has a chance to compete for León’s services at the end of the season is his current team Sir Safety Conad Perugia. Japanese teams have no chance, while in Russia, only three teams can make Grzyb’s client interested – Zenit-Kazan, Zenit Saint-Petersburg and Dinamo Moscow. And all three have a plan to fight for León!

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

I don't know about this. I think Haak is doing well but not great since she is the highest paid player on the team. Haak has been working really hard, lost weight to jump higher, hit the ball well but just not putting the ball away on her attacks. Gabi is a good attacker but she is just too short therefore being blocked easily. They had 4 match points against Imoco but failed. I believe the key reason is they don't have enough offensive plays to confuse the defense. The blame should be on the whole team including the coach. Ebrar is practically useless, Rasic's blocking is just not the same and their defense overall is lacking. I also think Vakifbank is rethinking about Zhu Ting seeing how serious her wrist injury is.

Re: @Agguerro Because this will lead to anarchy where individual players are deciding who deserves an award. No one is always right, and we all know that FIVB is more wrong than right. But it is FIVB competition and they make or change a rule as they see it fit. Like reducing number of participants to 4 this year. Or awarding the best setter and MVP award to the same person although in the past those two awards were intentionally given to two different players?
Did you ever wonder why Perugia and Trentino, last year champion, don't participate anymore? Because they don't want to be part of this nonsense competition that doesn't mean anything. But if Lube accepted to be part of, then they should follow the rules they accepted. Reply
