Good news for the fans of the France Men’s Volleyball National Team!

 

According to L’Équipe, Laurent Tillie will lead the France National Team in the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games. As it was known from earlier, after eight years at the helm of the “Les Bleus“, the expert had decided to leave the post at the end of the Olympics to join the Japanese club Panasonic Panthers. At the time, the event was to be held in the summer this year. However, the postponement of the Games has changed the situation for Tillie although there was a chance that he commanded France Men for the last time in the European Olympic Qualifier in January without knowing it.

“The idea was that I go to the Tokyo Olympics. With this postponement which is relatively short in time, I reached an agreement with the Japanese club to be able to go the Games and made the one with the French federation, too. It’s not official yet, we have to get into details but they agree. It’s progressing well,“ Tillie stated for L’Équipe.

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

Sport Bond in Italian Volleyball (Part 1)

This is very similar to 'foundation rights' for football clubs around the world, well except for the US. In football, Jimmy plays for Club X from age 14 to 17. Then he jumps to SuperClub Y for free. Two years at Super Club Y, Giant Massive Club AA comes in and buys his contract from Super Club Y for $10,000,000!

Super Club Y would have to give a portion of the fee to Club X because of Foundation Rights. These rights stay with the player till age 23 (if I remember correctly from my days working in football).

Volleyball has enough issues with budgets and players making money, that there should be hinderance to player movement after age 18 or maybe 21. Just pay the club $10k per season trained or something like that. (Note- this is top of my head thinking and I am not privy to budgets for players).
