There is something wrong in the Bulgarian national team since the head coach Silvano Prandi has decided to expel five players from the squad.


His reason for doing so has been explained as a “conflict” but it’s still uncertain who is guilty of this conflict. Some media in Bulgaria report that these players had a difficult relationship with the national team coach.

The players that have been expelled are Georgy Bratoev, Valentin Bratoev, Nikolay Uchikov, Vladislav Ivanov and Nikolay Nikolov.

Other players tried to convince Prandi to change the decision but he remained silent about it.

This is a huge blow for the Bulgarian NT before the start of the Olympic qualification tournament that will be played in August. Recall that Georgi Bratove, Nikolov and Todorov were members of Bulgaria at the 2012 Olympics, where these boys ended in the fourth place.

Also, Bulgaria won five out of 15 matches in Volleyball Nations League 2019 and took the 12th place.

Well, the coach should have expelled everyone that he disapproves. I mean, are we going to see Russia, Italy, France, Poland entering Olympic or Bulgaria. I doubt that the latter will enter Olympic with such conditions.

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.
