The Serbian Women’s National Team faced with many problems in regard to the injuries of its players during the preparations for EuroVolley 2017.

 

As Zoran Terzić, the head coach of Serbia, stated, seven players are struggling with injuries at the moment, a bit more than a week prior to the 2017 CEV European Championship in Azerbaijan and Georgia.

Serbia’s main problem is the setters. Ana Antonijević’s doping test was found positive while Bojana Živković sprained her ankle in a friendly match versus Turkey and is doubtful for the Continental Championship.

„At the moment, I have only one setter at the disposal, a young Sladjana Mirković. The situation is really bad, I have many problems. Unfortunately, everything reminds me of London (seven players missed the 2012 London Olympics due to injuries). Even the rest of the girls here have issues with their health,“ Terzić said.

Milena Rašić has been sidelined for a while due to a fractured bone in her foot, Katarina Lazović has a cracked bone in her hand, Bojana Milenković has a hamstring injury, while Brankica Mihajlović and Sanja Malgurski struggle with ankle injuries.

„Still, we need to stay calm, to work the best we can and think about European Championship. Our ambitions there won’t change, we aim for the medal,“ Serbia’s head coach added.

More than that: If a team is a continental champion, like Russia (M) this year, why would they want to compete in one of those world tournaments?? They would know they are already qualified!

Dear Sorin, would you please READ the article properly. The European Championship comes at the end of all qualification tournaments for the Olympic Games, and 2017 European champions (Russia) did not secure their place in the Olympic Games. The 2019 European champions will.

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

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

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.
