The All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VFV) informed that the head coach of its Women’s Volleyball National Team, which was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the CEV European Championship that ended last weekend, Vladimir Pankov left his post “for health reasons”.

 

The VFV found a quick solution to replace Pankov. His assistant Sergio Busato, who has been continuously working in Russia both in clubs and national teams since 2011, will lead “Zbornaya” at the FIVB World Cup in Japan that will start at the end of the week.

The Italian expert came into the spotlight recently for causing an international Volleyball scandal by posing for a photo in a way that was insulting for Asian people and was disqualified by the FIVB. He served his sentence at the 2019 EuroVolley. Busato spent most of his coaching career in Russian male Volleyball, even being involved in winning the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics.

The Italian coach will lead the national team only temporarily until the VFV officials meet in November to decide whether he will stay at the helm or not.

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Kosheleva was without a doubt the most impressive player of the match Reply

ITA M: Lube annul powerful display of León to beat Perugia in derby of all derbies

This is a very impressive start for Lube. They still serve and block very well......Perugia not so much.

Perugia is in trouble this year with a record of 10-10 in sets and currently in 5th place. Most every team is improved this year and having to rely on Leon to separate games for you is not the answer Perugia can rely on in this league.
Lube 10 aces (Bruno - 4aces....wow)
Perugia 5 (Leon 1ace) not enough. Reply

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Guangdong is putting too much on Kosheleva. The team should also do their job. I'm a fan of Zhu but I want Kosheleva to shut her down. Hooker is also being under utilized. They rarely pass the ball to her. The CVL also seems boring than the CEV (European VB). Reply
