The Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship titleholders Fenerbahçe extended contracts with eight players for the 2019/20 season!


Fenerbahçe announced contract extensions with, as much as, eight players from the champion’s roster: middle blockers Oğuzhan Karasu and Ferhat Akdeniz, liberos Ahmet Karataş and Caner Dengin, setter Ulaş Kıyak, Cuban outside hitter Salvador Hidalgo (it was unofficial until now), and opposite hitters - Dutch Wouter ter Maat and İzzet Ünver.

Which is even more important for Fenerbahçe, the İstanbul team persuaded a master-mind of success that “Fener“ made last season, the Polish head coach Mariusz Sordyl, to stay in the club for one more season.

Fenerbahçe thanked Serbian outside hitter Konstantin Čupković (already moved to Tours, France) and Belgian outside hitter Kévin Klinkenberg for being a part of the club in the previous year.

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
