The fans of Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship runners-up Sir Safety Conad Perugia finally had a chance to see the new head coach Vital Heynen in their home – the PalaBarton.


Only three days prior to the Italian Championship opening, on which his team Sir Safety Conad Perugia will play Top Volley Latina, Vital Heynen has finally arrived in the club and was officially presented as a head coach at the press conference at the PalaBarton hall. The Belgian expert said that he met players which he will guide throughout the season and talked to De Cecco and Lanza. He explained how important León will be for the play of Perugia, Of course, when you have Heynen as a speaker, you can always expect some anecdote or a joke.

”Being a coach in Italy is much more than exciting. I am sure that today, the Italian Superlega is the strongest in the world. I will have to find my place in it. I call myself an intruder who comes from Belgium and maybe I will have some adaptation problems at the beginning. But today I feel calm, I wait for the games to get me excited. The real problem is that in the World Cup, I had 11 games and got only two yellow cards. It means that I’m getting old,” Heynen stated.

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).
