After winning the eighth French Men’s Volleyball Championship title, Tours made several changes in their roster for the 2019/20 season.


As it is known from earlier, Tours appointed country’s legendary libero Hubert Henno head coach and hired Nicolas Rossard from Berlin Recycling Volleys, Germany, to replace him in the roster.

As far as other transfer activities recently, Tours signed American middle blocker Daniel McDonnell from Tourcoing. A 30-year-old player actually returned to Tours after four seasons.

Prior to McDonnell, the Ligue A Masculine champions engaged another American, also a middle blocker - Price Jarman (Vôlei UM Itapetininga, Brazil), Czech setter Matyáš Démar (VK Lvi Praha, the Czech Republic), his compatriot – outside hitter Adam Bartoš (Nice, returned to Tours after three years), and Serbian outside hitter Konstantin Čupković (Fenerbahçe, Turkey, returned to Tours after one season).

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
