The U.S. Men’s National Team member Taylor Sander will miss out the upcoming season for health reasons, his new club Dinamo Moscow published.


The Russian top division side Dinamo Moscow informed its fans that the club’s huge reinforcement for the next season Taylor Sander will undergo a difficult shoulder operation in the near future, after which a serious period of time for recovery and rehabilitation will be required to prepare for the 2020 Olympic Games. Therefore, his contract with Dinamo will not come into force.

The injury from which the U.S. National Team captain suffers happened during the preparation for the FIVB International Olympic Qualifier, this summer. That is why the 27-year-old outside hitter was unable to appear in the U.S. roster, which managed to win a promotion for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

After the tournament, despite all the efforts of doctors and a month of rehabilitation procedures, Taylor decided to undergo an operation, after which he would need to go through a long recovery period under the supervision of American specialists, which excludes the possibility of his participation in competitions in the upcoming season.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
