INTERVIEW: Vlado Nikolov for WoV – “Our Federation is not helping volleyball in Bulgaria at all”

1809 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.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply
