We now know what the newcomer in the Sultans League Turkish Airlines club wants to do! They have set the highest possible goal and they are working hard to achieve it.

 

In order to find out those plans, we have contacted the General Secretary of the club Ramazan Yildirim, who has gladly accepted the interview for WorldofVolley.

Your team will be playing in the Sultans League. What are your impressions about it?

Sultans’ League is one of the most valuable volleyball leagues in the world and Turkish Airlines is the global, flagship brand of Turkey as you know. We are so excited to participate in this level which suits our brand’s vision very well. Our team had remarkable achievements promoting the upper leagues two years in a row. Our well-planned organization motivated the team members so that in such a short term we had a great chemistry and became ready to play in the Sultans’ League,” explains Ramazan Yildirim.

What is the team's goal in the season 2018/2019?

Our current goal is to attend European Cups by finishing the league in the required position.”

Since you worked in Vakifbank, we would like to hear a comparison of Vakifbank and Turkish Airlines, regarding the organization of the club, facilities, staff, players...?

Our history, experience and club facilities are too good to compare with any other clubs. Turkish Airlines is a worldwide brand with high standards and our volleyball team’s vision is not the less.”

Are you satisfied with the current squad?

In the last two years, we tried to work not only with good players but also decent individuals. We consider our players as family members. We build up teams according to this strategy. We are so selective about our squad. This year, again we created a team that never gives up and fights until the end. Our technical staff and players are so hard-working and we are glad to have devoted members in our family.

What are the plans of the club in the future?

This is a 5-year long project and we can divide it into parts. The first part was to participate in Sultans’ League without ever losing time in lower divisions, which we had succeeded. As I said before, the second part starts with this season and our current goal is to attend European Cups by finishing the league in the required position. In 2019-20 season, our desire is to become the European Cup Champions, besides finishing Sultans’ League in a higher position to qualify for Champions League. Our final goal of this 5-year project is to win the Champions League in season 2020-21,” says Ramazan at the end of the interview for WorldofVolley.

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

I agree with almost all you said. But the thing with grebennikov is much more difficult. Grebennikov is French and Lube desperately needed one italian libero to make space for Leal. They chose good, but this guy played before for Padova (if I am not wrong) without any pressure to win. Reply

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

Unfortunately, this was expected. I was surprised this hasn't happened after last season and 5 lost finals. It's always a coach that pays the price since it is easier to fire a coach vs the whole team.

It was the same in Perugia at the beginning of last season, when Atanasijevic was injured and didn't play so Perugia lost few games in the row. Sirci immediately fired Kovac, who made that team and save them previous season and brought Bernardi. Coincidentally Atanasijevic recovered at the same time and Perugia started winning. And glory goes to Bernardi :)

I love Lube but they simply have too many good players on the team and they need a coach who is a good psychologist. After losing 6 finals, they have a serious problem.

After their game vs Zenit, when they saved 8 match points, I expected them to walk over Trentino in finals. But they were nowhere to be found.
Lubre fired Christensen to bring Bruno, which was the mistake in my opinion. Christensen was the soul of that team after playing so many years for Lube.

They did an unfair thing to Sada by bringing Simon who was under contract with Sada. They brought Leal as well. He is a great player but he doesn't fit into already established attack formation with Sokolov as 1st attack option and Juantorena as 2nd.

Juantorena is 33 so he should have been replaced with Leal who is 29 if that is a long-term strategy.

But what hurt Lube the most is the fact they lost Grebennikov, who is the best libero in the world. Not sure what happened here, but Lube couldn't find a proper replacement and that is where their defense has a problem.

Rather, she can play Chemik, because Abbondazza is an Italian trainer. Reply
