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: 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
