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.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
