The U.S. website gazettereview.com has created a list of top 10 highest paid male pro volleyball players in the world.

 

The first question that comes to our mind is - are those numbers real? If YES, volleyball has made a progress, comparing with the previous two seasons.

Those amounts are not the even close to be similar like in the article that we published for the season 2015/2016 – Pro volleyball players’ salaries, male and female.

There is no dilemma about who earns the highest amount in the world per season – it’s Wilfredo Leon, the outside spiker of Zenit Kazan. The French star Earvin Ngapeth comes as second, while in the third place is Bartosz Kurek. Also, it is interesting there are three players from Zenit Kazan on the list…

Top 10 list of the highest paid volleyball players:

1. Wilfredo Leon (Zenit) – 1 400 000 $ (around 1 189 000 €) per season

2. Earvin Ngapeth (Modena) – 1 350 000 $ (around 1 147 000 €)

3. Bartosz Kurek (Ziraat Bankasi) – 1 100 000 $ (around 934 300 €)

4. Simon Robertlandy (Sada Cruzeiro) – 967 000 $ (around 821 300 €)

5. Dmitry Muserskiy (Belogorie) – 950 000 $ (around 807 000 €)

6. Aleksandar Atanasijevic (Perugia) – 920 000 $ (around 781 380 €)

7. Gyorgy Grozer (Lokomotiv Novosibirsk) – 870 000 $ (around 739 000 €)

8. Matt Anderson (Zenit Kazan) – 850 000 $ (around 722 000 €)

9. Maxim Mikhailov (Zenit Kazan) – 714 000 $ (around 606,000 €)

10. Ivan Zaytsev (Perugia) – 620 000 $ (around 527,000 €)

 

Of Course, this is unofficial list made by the U.S. website gazettereview.com. However, we are wondering are those numbers real?

Later on, you will read reaction from one player from the list, who has talked about those numbers - Stay tuned.

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
