A prominent Russian expert Vladimir Alekno is the most serious candidate to take charge of Iran men’s volleyball National Team!

 

According to Tasnim News Agency, Alekno is the main candidate to take over the bench of Iran National Team.

Allegedly, the President the Islamic Republic of Iran Volleyball Federation (IRIVF) Mohammad Reza Davarzani said they started negotiations with the Russian expert who led his country’s national team to the gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics and Zenit-Kazan to five titles in the CEV Champions League (among many other trophies).

The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics for which they need a big name on the bench after parting ways with Montenegrin Igor Kolaković.

The 53-year-old Alekno has most recently worked as head coach of Zenit-Kazan but withdrew from that position a year ago.

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion.

Re: @George
This season, she sometimes receives the serve in Turkish league. I guess instead of Boskovic, Terzic wants her to replace Mihajlovic. Reply

ITA M: Piacenza stun Milano on road

So this was a dominant and impressive road win for Piacenza. Baranowicz is getting a better connection to the outside and smartly is forcing more middle action.
I have really been impressed with the growth of Scanferia. He and Clevernot are passing much better. With the addition of Mousavi and Russell and Grozer playing at such a high level, Gas Sales is going to make a serious move in the 2nd half of the season.
As far as the league, Trentino has been a major dissapointment, Modena under Christenson leadership has been terrific, Monza remains dangerous, and overall the league is very competitive and fun.
Lube and Perugia may not be there at the end.
The league needs to find a way to increase its exposure worldwide, imo Reply
