Among the Iranian volleyball players who are playing in the prestigious Italian Serie A1, MohammadJavad Manavinejad is one of the players who quickly settled into the Italian style of life and the league as well.

 

He is doing well in Verona so far.

What are the reasons for losing the important games so far this season?

Honestly, our opponents are very strong. Also, we were struggling with them but since we have put behind the difficult games, we are going to compete with the teams that are currently below us in the standings. So we have the chance to take some victories that will boost our position in the standings.“

Savani left the team recently but Matey Kaziyski arrived.

“Savani left the team, but instead of him, Matey Kaziyski joined our team. He is a great player and he is already contributing. Well, I had some good displays and I can confirm that I’m enjoying this competition.“

How media treat the Iranian players in Italy?

There are some good articles about the Iranian players. A few days ago La Gazzetta dello Sport had a beautiful article about Saeed Maarof.“

Your plans for the next season?

I will wait till the end of the league, then we will see what will happen. I will consider all offers. But, I'm very satisfied here in Verona. Everything will be clear at the end of the season,“ says Manavinejad.

FRA M: Ngapeth has a question for the FIVB

Organisation of OG Qualification in Poland reminds me WCh2014 as far as a timetable, referees.. It is enough to compare all schedules of home NT with other qualification groups.. Poland NT is probably currently the strongest NT in men volleyball in the world, and it does not need any such a trick... Of course, it indicates also the role of FIVB, which is orientated mainly on a profit... Reply

FRA M: Ngapeth has a question for the FIVB

um...did he protest as loudly during Italian tournaments in the past? really, if Poland was playing this tournament in France, we would have as unreasonable schedule as they had and, we too, would complain, but what does it matter? FIVB accepted the schedule, so Ngapeth can only blame his own federation for not fighting for this tournament's organization rights more. Reply
