INTERVIEW: Vlado Nikolov for WoV – “Our Federation is not helping volleyball in Bulgaria at all”

1101 0

A legendary volleyball player Vlado Nikolov has raised his voice against the Bulgarian Volleyball Federation.

 

According to Nikolov, who is currently a president of Levski’s men’s team, the Bulgarian Volleyball Federation is not doing the right things and the changes are needed.

So, we have decided to call Vlado Nikolov and ask him what is happening these days in Bulgaria.

The clubs in Bulgaria demand the dismissal of the Bulgarian Federation president Dancho Lazarov. Why?

The things in the Bulgarian Federation are not going in the right direction, especially after the World championship. Simply, the situation is not good. We think that our Volleyball Federation is not helping volleyball in Bulgaria at all. The Federation is not helping our men’s and women’s club which are the base of the pyramid. There is a lot of room for improvement. We have never got an answer to our demands. In the recent period, we tried to get some reports regarding the financial state, however, we didn’t get anything. We don’t know what they are doing with the money since many people that are working in the Volleyball Federation never get their salaries."

How do you plan to make the changes?

All of us have the same goal. We want to make improvements in the Bulgarian volleyball and that’s also a goal of the men’s and women’s clubs in Bulgaria. I think he will never resign but I believe that we will make these changes at the democratic elections. After these democratic elections, I hope we will have a new president.”

What would be the further steps if Lazarov leaves?

Of course, firstly we will have the elections and then there will be new plans. Whoever comes instead of him, there will be a lot of work to do. We all together need to improve the situation in the Bulgarian volleyball.”

Is it easier to be a player or the president of one team?

“Well, I can say that it’s ten times easier to be a player,” says Vlado Nikolov for WorldofVolley.

We will be reporting about the situation in the Bulgarian volleyball so follow us to stay up to date with the fresh information.

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

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
