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.

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
