Kay van Dijk for WorldofVolley – “Not being part of EuroVolley made me more eager and fired up”

1274 0

Kay van Dijk is one of the top free agents on our list for the season 2017/2018!


In an interview for WorldofVolley, he speaks about the plans, last season, EuroVolley...

Are you preparing for 2017/2018 season?

I am practicing with MOK Krka, the local team here in Novo Mesto where I live 2/3 times a week. Besides that, I am practicing with HAOK Mladnost in Zagreb under the leadership of Ljubo Travica 1/2 times a week, because this team is a bit better than the local team here in Novo Mesto! Also, Ivan Raic and Danijel Galic, who are also waiting for a club, are preparing with this team. So, it’s a good level of practice. I am also going to the gym, 50 meters away from my house. It’s an old-style bodybuilding gym where I can do all my weights for volleyball! I’m there 4 or 5 times a week! All together this makes me directly available for any club out there to play,” explains Kay Van Dijk.

Did you have any other offers for the season 2017/2018?

I was busy with a team in Turkey for a long time but in the end, they decided to sign a different player. It was a disappointing moment for me because I would have loved to stay in Turkey. I have some small offers, we will see what will come up next! I have been in a lot of countries and we will see where the next one will be! I’m ready!”

How would you describe your last season?

My last season in Ziraat was fine but I knew I would sign as the second opposite behind Marcus Nilsson. I signed in Turkey because I really wanted to play there one season and to introduce myself to the Turkish league. I got some opportunities, because of the injury of Marcus and I believe I played well. After Marcus’ recovery, I had to make again a place for him. I loved playing in Turkey and would go back there in a moment.”

You had been left out for the European Championship. How did you feel after this decision?

I had one of my best tournaments in May with the Dutch national team, qualifying for the World Championships 2018. So, I know I’m ready for some good league! Unfortunately, the coach didn’t want to bring me to the Eurovolley, where I could have made a contribution the team.! It was the last minute cut which was a huge surprise for me and the team.  However, you have to deal with it and keep on going. It makes me only more eager, fired up and motivated to play a great season this year,” finishes Kay van Dijk.

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)

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.
