The coronavirus pandemic that hit the world this year has spoiled the transfer plans of many volleyball teams. One of them is Poland’s men’s side VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa.


In an interview with the Iranian media, transferred by Boxscore News, the head coach of Warszawa, Andrea Anastasi, admitted that he wanted to bring the Iranian star Saeid Marouf to the club.

“Yes, I know that some media wrote about it but the truth is that, after the COVID, we have to change the idea about the team. Sponsors were unstable. We’re lucky we have one huge sponsor. We have some small problems with making a budget. We’ve mixed the team with a lot of younger players, who are basically from Poland. We attracted Trinidad, a young setter. He isn’t famous as Marouf but he’s a good player, the setter of the Spain National Team. Sometimes you don’t have the power to take the player that’s on your list,” the Italian expert explained.

Although the paths of Anastasi and Marouf didn’t meet at the club level in the 2020/2021 season, their cooperation can’t be ruled out given that the Italian coach is in talks with the Iranian Volleyball Federation (IRIVF) to take over the bench of the men’s national team.

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.
