SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

Vargas chooses nothing because neither turkish nor other federation invited her to play in their nt, except for the serbs. she is neither an egonu (italian born african) nor an ismailoglu (bosnian born turk) and vargas may damage the chemistry of an nt. however terzic, her coach for years, is close to her and may be covinced to adapt her to the serbian team.

we must focus on 2 points: this 'veil of secrecy' and reaction of people in the website.

serbs surely kept things secret,as they were afraid if turks discovered their intention they would also made an offer to her which would ruin serbs'dreams.
but this 'veil of secrecy' may cause big drouble to terzic and fenerbahce may fire him and even vargas next year...but these are my personal opinions. lets wait and see.

more interesting is after fake news that vargas would play for turkey drove some people in the worldofvolley mad, they screamed like 'scandalous....must be prohibited....big fraud', and now i see these crusader-minded idiots keep silence. :D Reply
