Iranian media keep speculating in regard to the new head coach of the country’s man’s volleyball national team.


After reporting that their federation (IRIVF) negotiates with several big names to take over the men’s national team for the Tokyo Olympics, the media in Iran now have information that suddenly domestic experts have bigger chances in the “race“ for the job.

These names are circulating to come in place of Montenegrin Igor Kolaković: Behrouz Ataei (commanded Iran U21 to the title in the 2019 FIVB World Championship, currently at the helm of Labanyat Haraz Amol), Mostafa Karkhaneh (Saipa Alborz), Masoud Armat (Ataei’s assistant in the Iran U21 and head coach of Khatam Ardakan), and Peyman Akbari (long-time assistant coach in Iran senior National Team and head coach of Shahrdari Urmia).

All in all, it seems that a domestic expert will lead the Iran National Team after a decade of foreign coaches...

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
