Zenit Kazan’s superstar Maxim Mikhailov has given a big interview for the official website of the team.

 

He has talked about many topics and we are singling out some parts of the interview.

The journalist has asked Mikhailov about the arrival of the French star Earvin Ngapeth.

He is a professional and understands why he came to Zenit. If the player didn’t want to be here, didn’t understand his mission here, then he would not come over to our team. First of all, Earvin understands all of this. It’s important. We have a common goal and it doesn’t matter to us who will be on the court. We are ready to help newcomers on the court and in the locker room,” explains Mikhailov.

How do you like Ngapeth’s rap?

We listen to it in the gym. What can I say, he is a talented person. I am not a fan of rap, but the bits are good.”

About business

Many athletes invest money in a different business but don’t advertise it. You officially announce the opening of a guest house in Sochi, linking it with your name. Why?

I want to develop it as a small sports facility. So, the people would come and do some kind of beach training, asking me for an advice.

It was much more profitable to open a tavern and you invested in a center with family values and proper nutrition.

Our main goal is quality care. I want people to come to us and not only to leave money but to enjoy it.

Is it hard to be a businessman?

In psychological terms, that’s not easy. It is necessary to follow the reviews, to fix what people don’t like, make some inventions in marketing. In this regard, I’m having a headache but I have a partner who does a lot and without him, it would be difficult to think about this business.”

Also, there were some more topics about the World Championship, Zenit Kazan, his family but we singled out these answers... For the rest, you need to visit the website of Zenit Kazan.

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.

POL M: The Italian international to join Budowlani Lodz?

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