Itas Trentino barely avoided an upset against Kioene Padova in Round 20 of the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Fourth-placed Itas Trentino achieved hard-fought victory against Padova in the match that lasted almost two and a half hours and was valid for Round 20 of the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season: 3-2 (19-25, 25-20, 25-18, 28-30, 20-18). Brave players of the home side pushed the encounter deep into the overtime of the tie-break in which they squandered the lead of 12-9, failing to repeat a stunt from the first half of the season when they beat today’s rivals. Serbian Uroš Kovačević was the top scorer in Trentino with 20 points, while Cuban Fernando Hernández poured in 31 for the losing side.

Unstoppable Sir Safety Conad Perugia noted down 14th straight victory in the competition, 19th straight victory overall! Cucine Lube Civitanova swept Ravenna to tie with Perugia at the top of the charts. Both collected 48 points but Perugia have one win more than Lube and are at No.1.

Third-placed Leo Shoes Modena easily beat Allianz Milano to record 6th win in a row in SuperLega, 8th win in a row including all competitions. Milano suffered 3rd successive defeat and now have only theoretical chances to reach the top 4 until the end of the regular season.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

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
