Halkbank continued their run in the 2020/21 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship.


Halkbank recorded the 7th win in a row in the 2020/21 Turkish Men’s AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season. Led by Cuban Fernando Hernández (26 points), they beat İnegöl Bld. on the road by a 3-1 (25-21, 21-25, 25-17, 25-22) in Round 26 and remained 5th in the charts. More importantly for the Ankara-based club, it escaped 6th placed Spor Toto to +10 and now can focus all its efforts in fighting for a place in the top 4 - the last place that secures playoff participation.

Halkbank couldn’t go up in the charts given that Arkas Spor defeated Spor Toto in the big match in 4 sets, annulling the great game of Brazilian Wallace Souza (29 points) and hold position No.4. Efe Mandıracı top-scored Arkas with 22 points.

With 4th win in a row (3-0 vs Afyon Bld. Yüntaş), the leaders Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta came to 6 points ahead of the closest pursuers, Ziraat Bankkart (two game less played), Galatasaray HDI Sigorta, and Arkas Spor.

GRE M: Filippov fails to cope with lack of discipline of Cuban duo, resigns as PAOK head coach

Hola soy el ex jugador de Paok, solo quiero aclarar la falta de respeto de esta página al publicar tal dicha mentira, sin saber la realidad del problema, como mismo ha dicho el entrenador en su entrevista nosotros llegamos al equipo sin su consentimiento por lo que desde un principio fuimos mal mirados por el asi de gratis, hasta el punto de llegar a empezar hacer gestos 'racista' como por ejemplo en los castigos de los juegos los demás jugadores llevaban chocolate como castigo y los dos 'negros cubanos' teníamos que llevar bananas... En las llegadas tardes el nos decía una hora falsa la cual a la hora de llegar ya el entrenamiento había comenzado, entre muchas cosas mas que solo nosotros sabemos.. Asi que por favor a la hora de hablar, hablen con base y no con mentiras que eso nos afecta como jugadores, entiendo que lo hacen por dinero y todo eso pero por una falsa organizada como en la que nos vimos nosotros, podemos perder nuestra carrera.. Muchas gracias... Reply
