WoV BLOG: Is it time for Polish Men’s NT to get its first domestic coach after 12 years?

1715 2

In the past 12 years, the Polish Volleyball Federation (PZPS) changed 5 Men's National Team head coaches and none was the Pole.

  

Is it time to change that?

These are foreign coaches of the Men's National Team of Poland and their successes in the past 12 years:

2005–2008 Raúl Lozano (4 years) - an Argentine coach won the silver medal at the 2006 FIVB World Championship with the Polish team.

2009–2010 Daniel Jorge Castellani (2 years) - Under his command, Poland won a European Championship title for the first time in the history, on September 13, 2009. On October 25, 2010, after the vote of the Polish Volleyball Federation board, Castellani was sacked.

2011–2013 Andrea Anastasi (3 years) - He was the first Italian coach at the helm of the Polish team. He won the silver medal at the 2011 FIVB World Cup, the bronze medal in the 2011 FIVB World League, the bronze medal at the 2011 CEV European Championship and the gold medal in the 2012 World League. For the first time in the history, the Polish National Team won three medals in one year!!! In October 2013, Anastasi was fired and the reason for this decision was an unsuccessful campaign in 2013 which resulted in a lot of defeats. While working with Anastasi, Poland claimed 3rd place in the FIVB World Rankings.

2014–2016 Stéphane Antiga (3 years) - The young coach from France won the gold medal with Poland at the 2014 FIVB World Championship, which was the first success of a kind of the Polish NT after 40 years. Then, in the next year, he won the bronze medal at the 2015 FIVB World Cup and the bronze medal at the 2015 CEV European League.

2017 Ferdinando De Giorgi (1 year) - He did not have much chance to work with the team, but what they showed at the CEV European Championship in Poland was a debacle. The PZPS sacked him on September 20.

A deadline for the candidates for the new Men's NT head coach to send their applications to the PZPS is November 20!

Re: @Axe
I disagree. These players are worth it and the league may well become the strongest again in the world as it should be. The men's game is so much better than the women's game today and people need to respect that. Reply

ITA M: Perugia find replacement for Zaytsev – Trentino icon Lanza signs!

So Wrong. Trentino will compete for the top 3 spots in A1. Russell is a massive pickup for them. Very smart and consistent organization.

All the pressure is on Perugia with its investments. Reply
