After parting the ways with the head coach Jamie Morrison, the Dutch women's national team is making everything to find his replacement.


According to our source, there are two candidates for the hot seat of the Dutch women's national team.

The first one is the Turkish volleyball coach Ferhat Akbas, who is currently coaching Chemik Police. Also, he was gathering experience in the Japanese Women's volleyball team as a part of the coaching staff.

The second name is Daniele Santarelli, the current head coach of the Italian powerhouse Imoco Volley Conegliano. 

The officials of the Dutch Volleyball Federation are considering these two names and they will decide in the upcoming days. 

Recall that a few days ago, they parted ways with coach Jamie Morrison who failed to achieve some important goals such as reaching the Olympic Games and medal at the EuroVolley 2019.

I would choose Santarelli. Good coach and he can show emotions, something the Dutch team needs. Especially in the long run he could be a good coach. For qualification tournament in January I would go for a more experienced coach, as Caprara

as a turkish fan i hope they d never prefer akbas, the former turkish nt coach and assistant coach in vakif,he knows guidetti s system and turkish players well.considering netherlands is the most serious opponent in olympic qualification for us he might be dangerous. all other coaches ok.

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
