The Italian Volleyball Federation (Fipav) announced that it has reached an agreement with the legendary head coach Julio Velasco to take over the position in the Men’s Volleyball youth sector.

 

The legendary head coach Velasco, who retired at the end of the last season, is appointed the new technical director of an Italian youth Men’s Volleyball sector. Thus, a 67-year-old Argentinean expert returned to the environment with whom he is familiar and with whom he achieved many successes during his coaching career.

As a head coach of Italy Men’s national team, Velasco has collected 323 caps between 1989 and 1996. During this time, he won the FIVB World Championship twice, CEV European Championship three times, FIVB World League five times, and FIVB World Cup and FIVB World Grand Champions Cup one time each. To this, Velasco added 35 games at the helm of Italy Women’s national team from 1997 to 1998.

Velasco signed a contract with Fipav for two and a half years and will be officially presented to the media in July.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

So Ebrar out and Haak will be replaced ? I suppose Ezcacibasi will respond, Kim is definately not in her league, i think Tijana need some partner, and Natalia is not the one. I still cant see Egonu moving from Italian league to Turkey, that must be some great payment to do so. Otherwise, i would like to see Brakocevic & Tijana in same club, no other option to respond to Vakif. Unless Natalia and Kim will push their game. Maybe Tijana should go to Novara, her season if nulled with this team. Reply

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply
