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.

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(

The results of the VNLs don't give the participating national teams any points for the FIVB rankings. Does anybody or WorldofVolley has any idea, why? Reply
