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

1172 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.

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
