The Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship giants Halkbank decided to change strategy when it comes to head coaches.


Halkbank were coached by foreign experts since 2012. It was a fruitful strategy for most of the times, but the elimination in the playoff semifinals to Fenerbahçe last season made the officials of the Ankara team turn over a new leaf, starting from the 2019/20.

Halkbank appointed domestic expert Taner Atik, until now an assistant coach, as a head coach. He has been working with the club for 10 straight years during which Halkbank won four Turkish Championships, three national Cups, four Super Cups and one CEV Cup. Atik will replace Italian Alberto Giuliani.

Earlier, Halkbank announced parting ways with both setters, Arslan Ekşi and Italian Michele Baranowicz (went to Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia) and middle blocker Kemal Kayhan. The Serbian opposite hitter Dražen Luburić is heading towards the exit door.

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
