The iVolley Magazine published men’s volleyball transfer rumor that's highly interesting…


According to iVolley Magazine, the rising star of the Cuban volleyball, Miguel Ángel López, is on the radar of Sada Cruzeiro.

The 22-year-old outside hitter, competing at the 2016 Rio Olympics at the very young age (19), has been successfully playing in Argentina for three seasons and has exploded in the recent South American Club Championship, leading UPCN San Juan Voley Club to the final in which they succumbed to Cruzeiro. López scored 75 points in three games only in the tournament and attracted the interest of a club that beat UPCN for the continental title.

The Cuban player was awarded Best Outside Hitter of the Sudamericano de Clubes and, allegedly, received an offer from the Minas Gerias giants to follow footsteps of his compatriots Leal and Simón, who further developed themselves as great players while defending the colors of the Brazilian club for years.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
