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

1752 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.

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply

I would have to agree here. Leal is a huge addition to a very talented squad. They have been a force all tourney long.
But I'm going to go with my gut instead of my head.
