Silvana Chausheva for WoV – “Busto’s fans are really the best fans! They follow us everywhere”

It was a huge step for her and a big opportunity to make a progress in her career. After Maritza Plovdiv, one of the best teams in Bulgaria over the past 10 years, Silvana joined Busto Arsizio. 

She neede a while to get used to life in Italy, however, the things are getting much easier for her these days. 

Since you took part in the 2017 FIVB U23 World Championship, which was the first tournament in which the new scoring system was tested, what are your impressions and comparison with the regular scoring system?

I don’t like this system because the sets are so short and if you have a big difference in points, you don’t have time to reach the opponent team,” says Silvana Chausheva for WorldofVolley.

You moved from Maritza to Busto last summer, a little before your ex-club achieved promotion to the 2018 CEV Champions League as the first-ever Bulgarian club. Do you regret even a bit because you were not a part of the team that made this historical success?

I have always been happy to be part of Maritza because I’m feeling like at home there, but after consulting with my management and coaches there we decided that for this moment for me is better to be in Italy and of course in this very good team Busto Arsizio.”

How do you feel as a member of Busto Arsizio?

I was very excited when I heard the proposal of Busto Arsizio from my agent Tunc Afsar. Busto Arsizio is really a very professional club. The management takes care of us like our family. Every teammate helps me and I’m very thankful for that.”

Name your best quality as a player and name which are the things you still need to work on in your play?

I can’t say what is my best quality… I have a motivation to become a good player and I practice hard for this and I think this is the most important thing. Everything else you can do or make.”

Busto fans are considered one of the most loyal in the Italian league, making great atmosphere during matches. How much does their support mean to you and do you have some message for them?

I agree on this… They are really the best fans! They support us every match and everywhere. So, I want to tell them big Thanks and always to be positive like they were so far. We’ll do our best to make them happy.”

What are your volleyball goals and how do you plan to reach them?

I want to be a good player, to reach the high-level volleyball and O think that only one way to become is to work hard, not to give up. Follow your dreams every moment, it doesn’t matter how difficult it is.”


Do you know what the word loyalty means – Busra Kilicli knows it! Also, read an interview with Zhana Todorova, a player who is part of Maritza’s great success this season.
