JPN W: Ferhat Akbas leaves coaching staff of women’s Japanese national team

1264 1

The Turkish-born coach Ferhat Akbas has decided to step down from the assistant coach position of the women’s Japanese national team.

 

Because of the very busy calendar of FIVB National Team Season and  CEV Club Volleyball season, I had to make a very hard decision. The choice was between “working both for a Club Team and a national team at the same time” or “staying always in Japan till the end of Olympic Games” which means staying Japan for 16 months. Even if I gave my %100 effort for the success of Team Japan last 2 years;  for my future, for my professional career, for my life, I couldn’t choose to stay in Japan only for #TeamJapan and #Olympicgames.  After having very good results and times last 2 years, I would like to say goodbye to all Japanese volleyball fans, players, the Japan Volleyball Association, all my friends in Japan. I will never forget the great memories. It was an honor for me to carry the Japanese flag on my chest. One day, I will be back! Hope to see you all,“ says Akbas.

Akbas is currently coaching Romania’s champions C.S.M. BUCURESTI who are making this season their maiden appearance in the elite CEV Volleyball Champions League.

@Suisse thanks for the clarification, yes the Italian league is super strong this year and Russell's playing is getting better, his jump serves are stronger and consistently staying in and his passing has improved. Russell has the ability to switch gears into the next level in big games and tournaments, when it counts. Reply
