Women’s volleyball club Fenerbahçe Opet prevailed over Galatasaray HDI Sigorta in the greatest sports classic in Turkey.


The rivalry between Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray is epic in Turkey in all sports, so is in volleyball. In only 7 days, these 2 sides faced in both male and female Turkish Volleyball Championship regular season. And players wearing Fenerbahçe’s jersey were better on both occasions. In Round 15 of the 2019/20 Vestel Venus Sultanlar Ligi regular season, it was 3-0 for “Fener“, partially 25-21, 25-23, 25-20, who recorded the 9th win in a row. Eda Erdem Dündar highlighted the winners with 15 points (5 kill blocks). Greek Anthi Vasilantonaki scored 14 points for Galatasaray. Each of the clubs maintained positions in the charts which they held prior to the game – Fenerbahçe No.2 and Galatasaray No.4.

The leaders VakıfBank extended their winning streak to 10 games, while 2nd placed Eczacıbaşı VitrA had an easy job against Beşiktaş. Türk Hava Yolları ended their own 3-game losing streak to progress from the 7th to the 5th position in the charts. At the same time, they left last-placed Beylikdüzü Voleybol İhtisas winless even after 15 games.

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

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

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
