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: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
