The 2018/19 Russian Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists Zenit Saint-Petersburg announced that they appointed Tuomas Sammelvuo new head coach!

 

The rumor from a month ago has been confirmed - the new head coach of Zenit Saint-Petersburg is the Finnish expert Tuomas Sammelvuo.

Thus, Zenit hired a coach that was involved in their elimination from the playoff semifinals last season. Sammelvuo went all the way with Kuzbass Kemerovo, winning the first-ever national championship for the club from Siberia.

This summer was very successful for the Finnish coach as he led Russia men’s National Team to the gold medal in the FIVB Nations League and winning promotion to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Kuzbass did not find a replacement for Sammelvuo yet. Some Russian media speculate that Gheorghe Crețu will take over their bench. Last season, the Romanian expert coached Asseco Resovia Rzeszów, Poland.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
