The Turkish Women’s Volleyball titleholders VakıfBank welcomed Serbia National Team setter Maja Ognjenović on the club's website.


VakıfBank continued their transfer activities for the new season by contracting one of the best setters in the world Ognjenović.

Only a year ago, Serbia National Team member (the winner of the 2011 CEV EuroVolley /Best Setter/ and 2018 FIVB World Championship) waged fierce battles against her new team as she defended the colors of Eczacıbaşı VitrA.

The 35-year-old athlete spent the last season in the Russian side Dinamo Moscow and won the national championship. At the end of the season, she renewed the contract with the team from the Russian capital but requested it to be canceled in order to move to Vakıf. Dinamo agreed to meet Ognjenović’s demands, as the club General Director Vladimir Zinichev explained.

It's better to Carlini play in Vakifbank instead Ognjenović.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
