Gino Sirci, the President of Italian Men’s Volleyball powerhouse Sir Safety Conad Perugia, vigorously criticized sports managers at Confindustria Umbria, the meeting of entrepreneurs from the cities of Perugia and Terni, Umbria region, Italy.


“I am a fisherman, I often go to Brazil. There is often an element of a disturbance between me and the fish, a third element, a fish that is not a fish, the piranha. A big disturber… The one who wants to eat, eat and also attacks the hook... A manager is a piranha that pushes on the players and not only the good ones but also those who do not ask him to do so...” transferred the words of Sirci regarding the managers in sports.

“The managers are people that I’m against. They may point you to a player but you don't know if he’s a good player, you do not know if he's someone who wants to drink, who is quarrelsome, who is a womanizer, who is busted... Not listening to the managers is essential to succeed in sports in general. Avoid managers because they’re pimps, they’re the worst side of the sport,” President of Perugia also stated.

Why are you so mad on agents...there are many professional managers around’s only your problem because you pay 30% commission instead 10%. No need to put stigma on all agents when it’s only your fault.

well, do you need players to worry all documents and things that requires specialist to do to do by themselves. Then you can acquire players who does not use manager.

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
