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

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

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

9. 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.

BRA W: American setter officially in Barueri

She couldn't refuse such an offer, with such a trainer as Ze Roberto is lucky! Cool have a team at Hinode Barueri. Star on the star. Reply

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @dee jae69
Have you watch or seen the statistics of the final of Champions League?
Ivan Zaytsev with 14 pts 11 spikes(60% kill with only one fault)
Atanasijevic with only 9 pts 6 kills(32% 4 faults)

Conclusion:
Let's get rid of Zaytsev. Just funny. lol Reply

Re: @dee jae69 Check their wins. How many gold medals they have with Leon? How many gold medals they achieved without him? Zenit Kazan will be in bit trouble against the other heavyweights in Russia and Europe. With him on your side they dominated everyone besides Sada Cruzeiro until last year.
Anderson is getting old. He is very mediocre nowadays. He is not important to Zenit Kazan anymore. Only his serve is good. Mikhailov will soon be at his thirties. Poletaev may be good but he needs to prove himself in another club while Mikhailov still reigns supreme as Russia's best opposite.


Atanasijevic's contract will end this year. Same as Zaytsev. One of them will leave if Wilfredo Leon signs a contract with Perugia
Atanasijevic should leave. He chokes in crucial moments. I'd rather have Zaytsev who plays with all his heart, a more reliable player in the end game and a complete player with all the skills in the world a player could ask for. He is also a better team player.
