After the big finals of the first-ever FIVB Volleyball Nations League, coaches of USA and Turkey were satisfied with the results which their teams made.

  

USA coach  Karch Kiraly said after the match: “I am so proud of this team. All 14 of them, and many others back home, have put their heart and soul into this, and that makes us better every day. It is a great win for the USA women’s program. We look at this VNL as our main challenge and our main preparation going into the World Championship."  

Turkey coach Giovanni Guidetti is satisfied with his team: “This silver medal means the highest result in Turkish volleyball and we are really proud to make this little step of history with a very young team. It is also one small step, not to make us think we are too good, because we are not too good. We are here to learn a lot. But this gives us the confidence that we can be in the league of great teams. It is far ahead, but we are getting closer. Congratulations to USA. In my opinion, together with Brazil, they play the best volleyball. Karch Kiraly found a lot of solutions today, and, for sure, in every match. They have a lot of good players and it is absolutely acceptable for me to lose a final against a team like this.”

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

I agree with almost all you said. But the thing with grebennikov is much more difficult. Grebennikov is French and Lube desperately needed one italian libero to make space for Leal. They chose good, but this guy played before for Padova (if I am not wrong) without any pressure to win. Reply

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

Unfortunately, this was expected. I was surprised this hasn't happened after last season and 5 lost finals. It's always a coach that pays the price since it is easier to fire a coach vs the whole team.

It was the same in Perugia at the beginning of last season, when Atanasijevic was injured and didn't play so Perugia lost few games in the row. Sirci immediately fired Kovac, who made that team and save them previous season and brought Bernardi. Coincidentally Atanasijevic recovered at the same time and Perugia started winning. And glory goes to Bernardi :)

I love Lube but they simply have too many good players on the team and they need a coach who is a good psychologist. After losing 6 finals, they have a serious problem.

After their game vs Zenit, when they saved 8 match points, I expected them to walk over Trentino in finals. But they were nowhere to be found.
Lubre fired Christensen to bring Bruno, which was the mistake in my opinion. Christensen was the soul of that team after playing so many years for Lube.

They did an unfair thing to Sada by bringing Simon who was under contract with Sada. They brought Leal as well. He is a great player but he doesn't fit into already established attack formation with Sokolov as 1st attack option and Juantorena as 2nd.

Juantorena is 33 so he should have been replaced with Leal who is 29 if that is a long-term strategy.

But what hurt Lube the most is the fact they lost Grebennikov, who is the best libero in the world. Not sure what happened here, but Lube couldn't find a proper replacement and that is where their defense has a problem.

POL M: The Italian international to join Budowlani Lodz?

Rather, she can play Chemik, because Abbondazza is an Italian trainer. Reply
