1800 0

A legendary volleyball player Vlado Nikolov has raised his voice against the Bulgarian Volleyball Federation.

 

According to Nikolov, who is currently a president of Levski’s men’s team, the Bulgarian Volleyball Federation is not doing the right things and the changes are needed.

So, we have decided to call Vlado Nikolov and ask him what is happening these days in Bulgaria.

The clubs in Bulgaria demand the dismissal of the Bulgarian Federation president Dancho Lazarov. Why?

The things in the Bulgarian Federation are not going in the right direction, especially after the World championship. Simply, the situation is not good. We think that our Volleyball Federation is not helping volleyball in Bulgaria at all. The Federation is not helping our men’s and women’s club which are the base of the pyramid. There is a lot of room for improvement. We have never got an answer to our demands. In the recent period, we tried to get some reports regarding the financial state, however, we didn’t get anything. We don’t know what they are doing with the money since many people that are working in the Volleyball Federation never get their salaries."

How do you plan to make the changes?

All of us have the same goal. We want to make improvements in the Bulgarian volleyball and that’s also a goal of the men’s and women’s clubs in Bulgaria. I think he will never resign but I believe that we will make these changes at the democratic elections. After these democratic elections, I hope we will have a new president.”

What would be the further steps if Lazarov leaves?

Of course, firstly we will have the elections and then there will be new plans. Whoever comes instead of him, there will be a lot of work to do. We all together need to improve the situation in the Bulgarian volleyball.”

Is it easier to be a player or the president of one team?

“Well, I can say that it’s ten times easier to be a player,” says Vlado Nikolov for WorldofVolley.

We will be reporting about the situation in the Bulgarian volleyball so follow us to stay up to date with the fresh information.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
