1453 0

A legendary volleyball player Vlado Nikolov has raised his voice against the Bulgarian Volleyball Federation.

 

According to Nikolov, who is currently a president of Levski’s men’s team, the Bulgarian Volleyball Federation is not doing the right things and the changes are needed.

So, we have decided to call Vlado Nikolov and ask him what is happening these days in Bulgaria.

The clubs in Bulgaria demand the dismissal of the Bulgarian Federation president Dancho Lazarov. Why?

The things in the Bulgarian Federation are not going in the right direction, especially after the World championship. Simply, the situation is not good. We think that our Volleyball Federation is not helping volleyball in Bulgaria at all. The Federation is not helping our men’s and women’s club which are the base of the pyramid. There is a lot of room for improvement. We have never got an answer to our demands. In the recent period, we tried to get some reports regarding the financial state, however, we didn’t get anything. We don’t know what they are doing with the money since many people that are working in the Volleyball Federation never get their salaries."

How do you plan to make the changes?

All of us have the same goal. We want to make improvements in the Bulgarian volleyball and that’s also a goal of the men’s and women’s clubs in Bulgaria. I think he will never resign but I believe that we will make these changes at the democratic elections. After these democratic elections, I hope we will have a new president.”

What would be the further steps if Lazarov leaves?

Of course, firstly we will have the elections and then there will be new plans. Whoever comes instead of him, there will be a lot of work to do. We all together need to improve the situation in the Bulgarian volleyball.”

Is it easier to be a player or the president of one team?

“Well, I can say that it’s ten times easier to be a player,” says Vlado Nikolov for WorldofVolley.

We will be reporting about the situation in the Bulgarian volleyball so follow us to stay up to date with the fresh information.

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Something is not working well within Trentino this season. They have the same team as last year but no results. Lube is weaker than last year (Sokolov and Stankovic left) and yet they play better. Leal is playing more and Juantorena is a top-notch professional despite his age of 35, but still. Reply

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Trentino should be fine to advance in the top 3 2nd place positions for Champions League quarterfinals. Hopefully this rest will help them. That win in Milano was impressive. Lube continues to look great and Juantorena is still playing at a high level. Reply
