Planetary male volleyball superstar Ivan Zaytsev is officially a new player of Kuzbass!

 

Italian star Zaytsev will play for Kuzbass next season, the Russian club announced and put an end to the long-lasting saga.

Given that the 31-year-old opposite hitter has a valid contract with Italy’s Leo Shoes Modena until 2023, his transfer to the Kemerovo team is in the form of a loan. Thus, Zaytsev returns to playing in the homeland of his parents after four years (Dinamo Moscow 2014-2016).

 

During his club career, “The Tzar” won the Italian Championship and Italian Super Cup twice each and CEV Cup, Italian Cup, and Emir Cup once each. As a member of the Italy National Team, in which he serves as a captain, Zaytsev won eight medals but none was gold.

Individually, he was awarded MVP of the Italian Championship, Best Server and Best Opposite Spiker of the CEV EuroVolley, and Best Outside Spiker of the CEV Champions League and FIVB Volleyball Nations League - once each.

Kuzbass needs a strong Outside Hitter after Viktor Poletaev moves to St. Petersburg.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
