The voice of Grankin from Germany – “The attitude toward players in the Russian volleyball is terrible”

1340 0

Sergey Grankin has talked about the difficulties that he had a few weeks ago...

 

A new head coach came and didn’t want to work with me. This is the first reason. The second is the lack of result. The management had to do something, they decided to change not only the coach but also the main setter. We worked with the new head coach literally a week, maximum two. I think he came with a prepared solution for me. When he called, I was ready for this news. Of course, there was some kind of anger. In general, the attitude towards players in Russian volleyball is terrible. It’s a fact. At any time, you can find yourself on the street, doesn’t matter if you are the Olympic Champion or not. Players are not protected at all. If the leadership want to get rid of you – he gets rid of you. Should be some fines for it? Yes, there should be some fines but we are not in football or hockey,” says Grankin.

Recall that Dinamo Moscow parted ways with Grankin and he has decided to join the German side BR Volleys.

Also, Grankin said that he could play for Yaroslavich but he went abroad.

Sport Bond in Italian Volleyball (Part 1)

This is very similar to 'foundation rights' for football clubs around the world, well except for the US. In football, Jimmy plays for Club X from age 14 to 17. Then he jumps to SuperClub Y for free. Two years at Super Club Y, Giant Massive Club AA comes in and buys his contract from Super Club Y for $10,000,000!

Super Club Y would have to give a portion of the fee to Club X because of Foundation Rights. These rights stay with the player till age 23 (if I remember correctly from my days working in football).

Volleyball has enough issues with budgets and players making money, that there should be hinderance to player movement after age 18 or maybe 21. Just pay the club $10k per season trained or something like that. (Note- this is top of my head thinking and I am not privy to budgets for players).
