The one-time CEV European Championship and FIVB World League winner with the Russia men’s volleyball National Team, Nikolay Pavlov, ended his active career at the age of 38.


The veteran opposite hitter Pavlov switched to managerial work – he’ll be the sports director of the reigning men's champions of Russia - Lokomotiv. The 38-year-old spent most of his professional career exactly in this club (2006 - 2011, 2016 - 2019), helping them win the 2010 Russian Cup and becoming the MVP of the Final Four.

The Ukraine-born Pavlov played in Slovakia’s VK OSMOS Prievidza last season with which he won the national Cup and earned the MVP of the final award. On a club level, Pavlov won two Ukrainian Cups (both with Yurydychna Akademiya) and one CEV Cup (with Dinamo Moscow). Individually, he was awarded MVP of the CEV Cup, Russian league, and Russian Cup once each. In the latter tournament, he was Best Scorer once.

As a member of the Russia National Team (45 caps), Pavlov became the European champion in 2013 and winner of the World League the same year, having received the MVP award.

SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

As far as I know,turks gave up on recruiting vargas due to her marriage with a woman.Maybe this is why rich İstanbul clubs don't hire Egonu.


However what I didn't understand until yesterday is, if fenerbahçe can tolerate such players with, say, unusual preferences, then why it didn't change Vargas with Egonu.Again why they hired a 2nd class player, Busa,but not a better player such as Stysiak, Herbots etc..

Terzic has never been Fenerbahçe coach but 7/24 serbian n. team coach.All his decisions, preferences,actions are always parallel with serbia n. team's interests,not with fener's.Fener has 3 foreign athletes,all serbs,coincidence? The club must send him immediately. Otherwise fenerbahçe remains doomed to be the 3rd-5th team in home,and to be defeated in CL by vakıfbank, eczacıbası and by the italian team which has Egonu (presently Imoco I think)

Actually the problem is not special to Terzic,but to trainers coaching 2 teams.a national team other than turkish team and a club team. Federation would better ban clubs to hire such coaches. Reply
