Rezende criticizes – “We play too much”; Volleyball players support him

1762 1

Bruno Rezende is the first volleyball player that raised his voice against the current volleyball calendar, both at the clubs’ and national teams’ level.

 

He has written a long post on Instagram.

We played the last game in this year on Sunday. I thank god for giving me health to do what I love. But I can not forget to make constructive criticism of the organizations that control the world of volleyball. It was an extremely stressful year, with countless trips, games and championships. From the clubs’ level and international as well. Special dates, like Christmas, we spent traveling and practicing. The number of injuries has increased and that’s not the best situation for everyone. The FIVB, CEV, LegaVolley, CBV and others need to understand that we are human and we need a calendar that also takes into consideration the health of the athletes. It’s not just about business and money. The athletes are creating the show. We, athletes, can get together to change a bit of this system.”

He got support from many volleyball players in the comments such as Ivan Zaytsev, Simone Giannelli, Nalbert, Helena Havelkova, Adenizia, Caterina Bosetti, Joanna Wolosz…

Bruno is right, FIVB and CEV are only interested in making money and completely have no regards for players and their health.

This year VNL was brutal, almost every weekend national teams have to travel across the world to play on another tournament. When VNL was over, a month later there was the World Championship.

Remember the final of 2016 World League in Brasil played on outside courts, the temperature was barely above 0 C.

Players who play for best clubs have a national league, national cup, and international competition so they have 2,3 games per week.

The calendar is inhumane and teams are forced to calculate and intentionally don't play with the best players on all competitions in order to save them for important ones.

ITA W: Fenerbahçe say goodbye to Bricio – Mexican player moves to Scandicci

Re: @doğan are you serious!?? This decision was made by Bricio herself. She does not wanna stay in Constantinople, she wanna return to Italy because she is unhappy. Are you able to understand this bitter fact!!! Players like Fe Garay, Fabiana chose to play in Fener in order to make more money. After playing 1 season, they all left! Same is valid for Bricio. GO GIRL!!!

ITA W: Fenerbahçe say goodbye to Bricio – Mexican player moves to Scandicci

If the rumour is true , it's a good desicion . I'm supporting it . If we will be in great competition we need more powerful player . I watched Logan , Shashkova , Natalia , F.Gray in this position in the past .. This players quality were more better than her .
She makes much mistakes when receiving services . And her attacks are not as well as successful we are waiting from her . So , in my opinion ı'm glad this decision . Reply

If this is true Natalia will replace Jordan. Kom's contract till 2020. But I hope Ecz will choose young player for outside hitter and middle blocker. Reply
