Giovanni Caprara has been appointed the new head coach of Azerbaijan Women’s Volleyball national team.

 

A 56-year-old Italian expert will perform a dual role again after eight years as he accepted to lead Azerbaijan Women in the 2019 and possibly in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. A month ago, he extended his contract with the top division team in his home country Il Bisonte Firenze.

The former head coach of Russia Women’s national team with whom he became the FIVB World Championship winner in 2006, possesses very notable international pedigree. On a club level while working with Women’s sides, he claimed FIVB Club World Championship once, CEV Champions League four times, and CEV Cup once.

Caprara’s first task is won a spot for Azerbaijan at the Olympic Games in Tokyo via Olympic qualifiers from August 2-4 in which his team will face Brazil, Dominican Republic, and Cameroon. After that, comes EuroVolley as the next big test for his team.

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
