Russian media reported that Russia Men’s Volleyball national team head coach Tuomas Sammelvuo will take over Zenit Saint Petersburg. His current employer, All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VFV), denied that he signed, but...

 

The President of the All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VFV) Stanislav Shevchenko comfirmed that Sammelvuo is in talks with the Superliga club.

“I know that Zenit Saint Petersburg are negotiating with Tuomas (Sammelvuo), but I don’t know how did it end. We’re in contact with both the coach and Zenit, we’re in control of the situation. As far as I know, the contract hasn’t been signed yet,“ Shevchenko said for TASS.

A 43-year-old Finnish expert Sammelvuo has another employer, Kuzbass Kemerovo, at whose helm he has been since 2016. He led the team to a historic championship title last season. The Executive Director of the club Sergey Lomako also commented on the rumors of Sammelvuo’s transfer to Zenit.

“Tuomas Sammelvuo is still the head coach of Kuzbass Kemerovo. Everything else at the moment is a rumor. Sammelvuo is with us, he has a valid contract. We received no official announcements from either Tuomas or Zenit. According to the plan, Sammelvuo now works in the Russian team and then returns to work in our club,” Kuzbass official told RIA Novosti.

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Kosheleva was without a doubt the most impressive player of the match Reply

ITA M: Lube annul powerful display of León to beat Perugia in derby of all derbies

This is a very impressive start for Lube. They still serve and block very well......Perugia not so much.

Perugia is in trouble this year with a record of 10-10 in sets and currently in 5th place. Most every team is improved this year and having to rely on Leon to separate games for you is not the answer Perugia can rely on in this league.
Lube 10 aces (Bruno - 4aces....wow)
Perugia 5 (Leon 1ace) not enough. Reply

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Guangdong is putting too much on Kosheleva. The team should also do their job. I'm a fan of Zhu but I want Kosheleva to shut her down. Hooker is also being under utilized. They rarely pass the ball to her. The CVL also seems boring than the CEV (European VB). Reply
