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.

IRN M: Iranian federation wants Alekno at helm of men's national team!

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
