One of the best ever setters in the Russian Men’s Volleyball, Sergey Grankin, might return to play in his home country at the end of the season.

 

A 34-year-old Grankin has not yet reached the decision in regard to the continuation of his career, but one of the options is to return to his home country after a season abroad. According to RIA Novosti, a 2012 London Olympics champion has received offers from Germany, where he currently competes, Italy and Russia.

At the moment, Grankin fights for the German Championship title with Berlin Recycling Volleys. The team from the German capital is the first team in his career outside of Russia. Of all the clubs for which he played, and there were only three of them, Grankin left the biggest mark while defending the colors of Dinamo Moscow for 11 seasons, during which he won the Russian Championship, Cup and Super Cup once, as well as the CEV Cup. He even reached the 2010 CEV Champions League final.

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
