The voice of Grankin from Germany – “The attitude toward players in the Russian volleyball is terrible”

979 0

Sergey Grankin has talked about the difficulties that he had a few weeks ago...

 

A new head coach came and didn’t want to work with me. This is the first reason. The second is the lack of result. The management had to do something, they decided to change not only the coach but also the main setter. We worked with the new head coach literally a week, maximum two. I think he came with a prepared solution for me. When he called, I was ready for this news. Of course, there was some kind of anger. In general, the attitude towards players in Russian volleyball is terrible. It’s a fact. At any time, you can find yourself on the street, doesn’t matter if you are the Olympic Champion or not. Players are not protected at all. If the leadership want to get rid of you – he gets rid of you. Should be some fines for it? Yes, there should be some fines but we are not in football or hockey,” says Grankin.

Recall that Dinamo Moscow parted ways with Grankin and he has decided to join the German side BR Volleys.

Also, Grankin said that he could play for Yaroslavich but he went abroad.

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

I don’t think so. I believe it will be 3-2 or 3-1 Civitanova in the last game against Trentino. As I said before, Trentino doesn’t have a good attack, very good at defense and reception, but the attack is concentrated on Kovacevic too much. lube on the other hand, have 3 attackers that are very strong. Russell after the mundial of clubs didn’t to a great Italian league, and gianelli when the team lacks a good reception commit too many mistakes like two touches and low balls. Let’s see how will go, but as I said earlier, Trentino doesn’t have a strong attack to beat Civitanova Reply

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

Zaytzev was simply terrific, finally. :)
Lube again wins the serve /passing battle, which they live by in this matchup.
Trentino looks fragile and unsure. Russell is not swinging with confidence, Kovacevic passing is off and serve is not there. Gianelli's location missed numerous times
Why is Vetorri EVER pulled for a significant less player in Nelli? That the Trentino coach cannot do again. All this and yet Trentino still could have won match 1 and pushed last night to 5.
Trentino will correct their mistakes and gain momentum on Monday at home and push this series to a 5th match. Lube will tire. Reply
