A true Volleyball transfer bomb exploded in China – the most famous Iranian male player Saeid Marouf has joined Beijing!

 

Tehran Times reported that a 33-year-old Iran national team setter Marouf joined the Chinese runners-up Beijing on a one-year contract. The news agency also reported that details of the athlete’s contract have not been released.

A 2-time Iranian Best Men’s Volleyball Player of the Year will play along with Cuban Leonardo Leyva and Frenchman Kévin Le Roux in the team. Beijing is Marouf’s 3rd foreign club in his career, as he has already played at Zenit Kazan, Russia (2014/15) and Emma Villas Siena, Italy (last season).

Marouf has won Asian Championship once and Asian Games and Asian Cup twice each with Iran. On a club level, he won the CEV Champions League and Russian Championship once each (both with Zenit Kazan), Asian Club Championship twice (Paykan Tehran and Matin Varamin) and Iranian Championship 3 times (Sanam Tehran, Kalleh Mazandaran and Matin Varamin). Individually, Marouf was named MVP of the Asian Championship once and Best Setter of the Asian Championship, Asian Cup and FIVB World League one-time each.

This is HUGE! Marouf is such a great setter. Beijing must have paid a shxt load of money to convince him to join them. I am sure next year Beijing will be able to avenge themselves against Shanghai to finally win the title of the league tournament in China.

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
