The Chinese and Italian media speculate of the transfer that might rock the summer market...


The Chinese media rely on Italian in speculations that the world’s volleyball superstar Zhu Ting will join Liaoning in the next season!

The club from the city of Liaoyang failed to reach the playoffs of the 2019/20 Super League and in general, is considered not having the financial strength to compete with much richer rivals in the country. The possible signing of the Rio Olympics MVP might be the key thing to make Liaoning the title contenders.

What is certain is that Zhu will stay in China for one more season given that the Tokyo Olympic Games are postponed for 2021 and the only reason why she has returned to China last year was to better prepare for the event. In the 2019/20, she won the national title with Tianjin and what stands in the way of Liaoning to hire Zhu is that the outside hitter really feels comfortable and satisfied in her current team.

Apart from Zhu, Liaoning want to sign an American opposite hitter Hayley Spelman (Hyundai Hillstate, South Korea).

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
