ECH 2017 M: Kovac – “I am asking myself what happened”

Slovenia won’t get an opportunity to fight for medals even though they managed to defeat the host Poland in the playoffs of the EuroVolley.

In quarterfinals, Russia were better in straight sets:

I am asking myself what happened yesterday. The players said that they were tired, because they had to play less than 24 hours after the last, very important match. To be honest, I don’t like it and I cannot understand why they didn’t use this positive energy and adrenaline from Wednesday’s match. Of course, the opponent is a very good team, but when you play against Russia for the second time, losing the first match by own mistakes you should have a different attitude, especially that a day earlier you had defeated such a strong team like Poland. This match showed that Russia are better at the moment and they aspire to play in the final of the European Championship, but this tournament already brought a few surprises and everything is possible. Every match is a new story and we will see what happens next. We are upset because I thought that we are able to be in the top four,” says head coach Slobodan Kovac.
