According to Gian Luca Pasini, the men’s volleyball club world champions Cucine Lube Civitanova wanted to engage Polish superstar Bartosz Kurek for the second half of the season!


Gian Luca Pasini wrote in his blog that Cucine Lube Civitanova sent an offer to their SuperLega rivals Vero Volley Monza for the MVP of the 2018 FIVB World Championship in order to replace injured Iranian international Amir Ghafour. However, Pasini reported that no agreement was reached between these two teams, therefore Kurek remains in his current team.

This morning the deadline for transfers of players in the Italian Championship has expired. At this point, the winners of the first half of the season in SuperLega have two options: to wait for Ghafour to recover or to look for a player who hasn’t started the season in Italy.

Lube should have signed Kurek before the season started.

Re: @Kili
Agreed, his last few years were very mediocre except last year World Championship. Not to mention his lack of professionalism since he signed a contract and then decided not to respect it

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
