WGCC 2017 M: Blengini – “Obviously, I’m very disappointed”; Kolakovic – “We just made the first surprise”

624 0

Italy didn’t manage to defeat Iran at the start of the World Grand Champions Cup 2017.


Obviously, I’m very disappointed with the result. We’re very disappointed we couldn’t win in the tie-break. The start of the match wasn’t so good, we were too tense and couldn’t play good volleyball. But after that, we kept our hopes up and were able to take the second and fourth sets. We couldn’t win today but Iran deserved the victory. The fact that Iran did so well is not something new. They’ve been playing at a high level for many years now. Today they defended more than us and better than us, which made it an even and tough match. They also counter-attacked very well and generally played better than us,” says Blengini.

We played against a great opponent, one of the best teams in Europe. At the start of the season, we lost 3-0 to them. Today, we had the opportunity to win 3-1 but missed out on that, but I’m happy with the victory. We arrived here with some hopes and dreams and would like to make some surprises against stronger teams than us in the world. Tonight, we made the first surprise. We have opportunities to make surprises in the coming days as we play USA, Brazil, France and Japan,” says Kolakovic.

Milos Nikic for WoV: “Big thanks to people from Ziraat”

From now on Ziraat is one of my favorite clubs. It is rare today to find a club that is looking after their players even when they are injured. Milos is born champion, and I have no doubt he will play on his level next season. Reply

TUR W: Ognejnovic to replace Nootsara in Fenerbahce!?

Re: @ST Thai opposite like from China and sometimes Japan players are also receivers.
I don't believe buying one of Nootsara's teammates to receive will solve Fenerbahce's reception troubles. IMHO it will probably spark more problems for Fenerbahce as they will probably have less reception coverage and will endanger Fenerbahce to Vakifbank,Eczacibasi and Galatarasay's servers even worse as there is a great doubt Thai receivers are experienced enough in two or three reception system.

TUR W: Ognejnovic to replace Nootsara in Fenerbahce!?

Re: @I love Fereira Kim is getting older. Soon her level will drop as she aged. What Fenerbahce needs to do is to find someone younger to compete against Zhu and Tijana and become the next sensation because getting Kim back will not only be expensive but risky for Fenerbahce's finacial health. There's a reason she went to China. The european season is also tough on the body and staying in Turkey might just accelerate the decline so she's being cautious with herself.
