The Polish volleyball player Fabian Drzyzga won’t play in Lokomotiv next season.


In an interview for Przegląd Sportowy, Drzyzga stated that he parted ways with Lokomkotiv only a few days after becoming the Russian champion with the Novosibirsk side.

“Talks have been going on for some time. We had plans A and B, but the final conversation with the club was literally the day before we learned that the Superliga is ending and Lokomotiv Novosibirsk became Russian champions. The bosses of the club didn’t hide anything from me, they honestly presented me with the team’s plan for the next season and admitted that they didn’t see me in it. I respect them for having the courage to talk to me normally and not deceive me or later do it by the phone. We parted in mutual respect and normal relationship,” a two-time world champion with Poland National Team said.

The setter added that there are good chances he will stay in Russia for the next season but stressed Italy is also a serious option.

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place.

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply

Sport Bond in Italian Volleyball (Part 1)

This is very similar to 'foundation rights' for football clubs around the world, well except for the US. In football, Jimmy plays for Club X from age 14 to 17. Then he jumps to SuperClub Y for free. Two years at Super Club Y, Giant Massive Club AA comes in and buys his contract from Super Club Y for $10,000,000!

Super Club Y would have to give a portion of the fee to Club X because of Foundation Rights. These rights stay with the player till age 23 (if I remember correctly from my days working in football).

Volleyball has enough issues with budgets and players making money, that there should be hinderance to player movement after age 18 or maybe 21. Just pay the club $10k per season trained or something like that. (Note- this is top of my head thinking and I am not privy to budgets for players).
