The Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship Serie A1 club Calzedonia Verona added two new players to the training for the next season.

 

Two receivers, a 24-year-old Slovenian Jan Klobučar and a 36-year-old American Ryan Jay Owens, joined preparations of Verona for the next season. It is not known if they came for a tryout or just to maintain their shape and help Italian club to have more players at the training.

Klobučar has spent last season in the German United Volleys RheinMain, being involved in two upsetting situations outside of volleyball courts in past year. Firstly, he had health issues as he got an infection before the Rio Olympics (fortunately it was not a Zika virus, as it was initially reported) while he was attacked in the nightclub in Germany and had to undergo facial surgery in February 2017. As for Owens, he was last active in 2015/16 while playing for the Finnish side Hurrikaani Loimaa. Now, he runs a volleyball agency.

ARG M: Legendary Marcos Milinkovic not coach of UNTreF anymore

Sorry but Marcos doesn't left Untref. He is back at the position of Sport Manager. Reply

USA W: Kiraly called 26 players including Murphy

Re: @rivers
You're right about the three american opposites. Unfortunately, Lowe is retired. Murphy is a great player and so is Fawcett, who played a key role in Dentil/Praia winning the Brazilian Superliga yesterday for the first time yesterday. I hope she stays in Brazil for the next season, like Carli Lloyd who is going to play for the same team. Talking about transfers, it seems that we (the Brazilian league) will lose Sonja Newcombe and Destinee Hooker who were playing for Minas. What a pity. Reply

Kim Yeon-Koung for WoV - "I still didn't make any decisions for next season"

The major problems why there have not been more great / talented Asians who played great and to their potentials in European leagues are language barriers and cultural differences. Asians are thought to conform, not to be aggressive, be nice, do not complain if possible, etc. Also there is still racial overtone against Asians in European leagues. Reply
