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.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
