EUROVOLLEY 2017 M: Croatia’s coach Lovrinov – “I’d like to ask CEV to reject my proposal…“

The head coach of Croatia, Igor Lovrinov, proposed a rather interesting idea to the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) after the second round of Pool B in Tbilisi when his team beat Georgia but dropped one set to one of the EuroVolley hosts and also debutants.



Yesterday, Lovrinov ironically said that he will suggest CEV to shorten the matches to two sets because his team has played good volleyball for only that long. But, after Croatia lost first two sets in Round 3 encounter against Italy and then leveled the score, he thought differently on his idea.

“I would like to ask CEV to reject my proposal in regards to shortening matches to only two sets. I am really satisfied with the performance that we showed this evening. We are looking forward to the next round and I believe we will be playing The Netherlands on Tuesday. When it comes to focusing and specific elements ahead of facing the next opponent it is always about the same thing – serving and reception. If we can perform well in those particular elements, then we have good chances. We showed that today against Italy. The moment we stabilized our reception, we had a good attack. And we have a couple of players with good attack, so we have our chances against The Netherlands,” Lovrinov stated.
