Legendary libero Hubert Henno played the last game in his professional volleyball career as France Men’s national team member.

 

In the exhibition that was held at the Robert-Grenon hall in Tours, a hall in which he competed for the last four season, a 42-year-old Henno sad a final goodbye to professional volleyball.

After completing his club career in early May by winning the French double crown (Championship and Cup) with Tours, the legendary libero played his ultimate match, the 254th, with the national team of France. In a gala show organized by the French Volleyball Federation that brought together all players of the current France national team, who is about to start the 2019 FIVB Nations League, Henno led the White team (Jean Patry, Julien Lyneel, Nicolas Le Goff, Thibault Rossard, Yacine Louati, and Barthélémy Chinenyeze). They beat the Blue team (Jenia Grebennikov, Jonas Aguenier, Raphaël Corre, Kevin Tillie, Daryl Bultor, Trévor Clevenot, and Timothée Carle) by a 2-1 (25-22, 32-34, 25-16). Carle was the top scorer of the game with 26 points, while Henno showed a notable farewell display by making 67% positive reception.

A two-time FIVB World Championship and CEV EuroVolley Best Libero, Henno, has been recently appointed Tours head coach.

Galatasaray is not thinking of taking any foreign player next year. Journalist and manager just pumping his price in Modena. Reply

ITA M: Serbian Stanković in Modena, won’t compete as foreigner

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
