The head coach of Zenit Kazan Vladimir Alekno sees Alexey Verbov as a good coach in the future…


I have a contract as a head coach for the next season, Verbov will be my assistant. He will have more confidence than before. I may not be present at some away matches that include long flights, but I will still control the situation. I want to look a little at everything from the side. Maybe Alex will add freshness, new methods in work. You know him well. He is more democratic and has a huge motivation to prove that he is on the right track,” says Alekno and adds:

I see all the prerequisites for him to become a good coach. It seems that he decided to finish his career. His absence may be a problem for us but I hope two young liberos will handle it. Also, there is a chance for Verbov to play for Russia for the Olympic Games tournament. In Zenit, he will be only a coach until January, afterwards we will see.”

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

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

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
