Veljko Petković has recently signed a contract with Espadon Szczecin, but he has not done it for money...

 

Przegladsportowy.pl writes that experienced setter accepted the offer of Espadon Szczecinto to help his friend, team head coach Milan Simojlović. The club needed another setter after parting ways with Georgi Bratoev, so Simojlović called Petković, who accepted to come to Poland.

"I cannot talk about the exact amount, but his contract is symbolic," said Espadon Szczecin president Radoslaw Rybak for przegladsportowy.pl.

Petković will turn 40 next January, while in his long and rich volleyball career he became the Olympic champion with Yugoslavia back in 2000.

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...
