Zenit Kazan players were truly shaken up after losing the 2019 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League Super Final to Cucine Lube Civitanova last night.

 

Zenit Kazan are not accustomed to losing finals, and that is how it was in years in the past several years. Especially not to lose two finals in only 10 days apart. Firstly, Kuzbass Kemerovo ended their five-season domination in Russian and last night Lube ended their four-year domination in the Champions League.

“No one could produce anything in any of the elements. Such a difference in the score occurs when one team is playing and the other one - just stands. We hit the rock bottom, we can’t fall any further than this,“ Zenit opposite hitter Maksim Mikhaylov said at the end of the match against Lube.

“Silver medal in the Champions League – it’s a normal result, it isn’t so terrible. I was most concerned and worried about the manner of losing these two finals. I’m not pointing fingers to specific players, but to the team and to the understanding of the word ’team.’ – I am. Have you seen the faces of my players? We played two finals with such faces as if someone was buried,“ Zenit head coach Vladimir Alekno was critical to his players as he rarely was before.

OQT M: Party in Bari - Italy wreck Serbia to punch last Tokyo ticket from International Qualifier

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
