But for Urmia, even bigger problem than a defeat against Paykan is the absence of Italian setter Dragan Travica who is waiting for the permission from the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB). The coach of Urmia and also Dragan’s father, Ljubomir Travicarevealed why is it so.

“In the game, my players were a bit nervous and this has resulted in some critical situations for us. We should accept that the first game is not easy and simple for each team. But we had an additional problem in this game: the transfer of our first setter Dragan Travica has not been released. It seems that the club has not paid the FIVB (International Volleyball Federation) for the international transfer and without it, the league has not issued him a permission to play,” he said .
