Galatasaray HDI Sigorta remained an undefeated side in the 2019/20 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season even after four rounds.

 

Galatasaray HDI Sigorta are definitely “lethal” to Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta this season. After beating them in the Super Cup in a prelude of the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season, Galatasaray HDI Sigorta recorded one more win against the same rivals and reached 4 out of 4. This time, they beat Fenerbahçe in Round 4 of the national championship: 3-0 (25-20, 25-22, 25-21) and inflicted them a first defeat in the competition. By scoring 15 points, Estonian Oliver Venno top-scored for Galatasaray in what is considered the biggest sports derby in Turkey. The Dutchman Wouter ter Maat poured in 18 points for the losing side.

İstanbul Büyükşehir Belediyesi Spor Kulübü, who was winless prior to Round 4, made a huge upset by beating one of the major title favorites Arkas Spor: 3-2 (25-17, 25-16, 18-25, 22-25, 17-15). Serhat Coşkun led the team from the Turkish capital with 26 points, while Emre Berat Fırat served 5 aces. Adis Lagumdžija scored 27 points for Arkas.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
