Although the end of the season isn’t that close, the transfer carousel and rumors run in full power. Like in many previous transfer windows, Bartosz Kurek will be in the spotlight.

 

The Polish opposite hitter might be moving to Russia for the next season, Przegląd Sportowy reported. The MVP of the 2018 FIVB World Championship currently defends the colors of the Italian side Vero Volley Monza and is by far its best player. The 31-year-old superstar is on the wish list of several clubs in Russia.

“There’s indeed interest from the Russian Superliga. Bartek has already jumped to his highest level in the Italian league and we’re expecting more offers. It’s unlikely that Monza will be able to afford to prevent Kurek from leaving,” the player’s manager Jakub Michalak confirmed rumors. Kurek already performed in Russia once, it was in the 2012/13 season when he was a member of Dinamo Moscow.

Michalak represents one more Poland National Team player who tends to highlight the transfer market in the summer - Bartosz Bednorz. According to Il Resto del Carlino, Zenit-Kazan offered 900,000 euros per season for an outside hitter currently competing in SuperLega, just like Kurek. Unlike Kurek, Bednorz’s club Leo Shoes Modena is financially stronger than Monza and Russian powerhouse won’t have him that easily. Michalak stated for Przegląd Sportowy that Bednorz is willing to stay in Modena despite the fact that his contract ends at the end of the season. The deadline for the decision on the renewal is in March. However, the manager admitted that Zenit-Kazan showed interest in his protégé just as few more clubs from this country.

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

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

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
