German men’s volleyball side United Volleys Frankfurt brought back a big name to the country’s top division - Jochen Schöps!

 

The long-time captain of the Germany National Team will play for United Volleys in the continuation of the season. The 36-year-old opposite hitter initially signed a contract until the end of the 2019/20, but the Bundesliga club has long-term plans with him. Schöps spent the first half of the ongoing season in Qatari SC Police.

He has won numerous titles in his club career so far: the 2007 CEV winner Champions League (awarded MVP), German Championship 3 times, German Cup 4 times, and Polish Championship 2 times (awarded MVP once). With the national team, for which he collected 318 caps and said goodbye in 2018, Schöps took the 2009 CEV European League and the 2015 CEV European Games. Schöps was recognized Volleyball Player of the Year in Germany 3 years in a row (2007 – 2009).

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).
