The Turkish women’s volleyball club VakıfBank is considering to hire Italian outside hitter Caterina Bosetti.


In the midst of final battles in the domestic league and the CEV Champions League, VakıfBank management is closely looking at the volleyball market.

iVolley Magazine reported that the Istanbul team considers hiring a 25-year-old Italian outside hitter Caterina Bosetti, currently playing for Èpiù Pomì Casalmaggiore in her home country. She is, allegedly, a great desire of VakıfBank head coach, and also Bosetti’s compatriot, Giovanni Guidetti.

But, iVolley Magazine added that Bosetti has competition in the Dutch Maret Balkestein-Grothues who is also VakıfBank’s option for the next season when it comes to the outside hitter position.

Not Grothues, Gabi and Caterina Bosetti are better than her.

Outside hitter? What about Zhu Ting and Kelsey Robinson? It would be crazy if they are leaving. Grothues is older and short. Robinson is a great, hardworking all around outside hitter and one of the best defender on the back court. Is Isabelle Haak a done deal at the opposite position?

It would be a huge disappointment for Vakif.. This means club is reducing the budget.. The Italians are gonna take over again first places from the Turks, hopefully.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
