The European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) released the results of an election of the top five non-European players, both male and female, who have played in the Champions League in the past 20 years.


After announcing Men’s and Women’s Champions League dream teams composed of European players for the last decade, CEV made two more interesting elections – for the best five non-European players that competed in these tournaments in the past 20 years. The system of electing was the same, through the discussion between renowned coaches.

Italian Roberto Piazza, Romanian Stelian Moculescu, and the Australian Mark Lebedew took part in choosing male players. Their choice was as follows:

1. Bruno Rezende “Bruninho“ (Brazil)

2. Clayton Stanley (USA)

3. Sérgio Santos “Serginho“ (Brazil)

4. Lloy Ball (USA)

5. Matthew Anderson (USA)

Italian Massimo Barbolini, Brazilian Marco Aurélio Motta and Dutch Avital Selinger picked top five non-European female players:

1. Zhu Ting (China)

2. Jordan Larson (USA)

3. Hélia Souza “Fofão“ (Brazil)

4. Kim Yeon-Koung (South Korea)

5. Mirka Francia (Cuba)

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
