The main reason is the large commitments around the club and the national team, so he would not have time to be with his family.
“I have spent three wonderful summers with Team Hungary and I am really happy that we could always reach our goals. I am proud of this and in some way we were able to bring Hungarian women’s Volleyball back to the international stage. I have so many nice memories that I cherish and that I will never forget. THANK YOU!!!” said De Brandt and added:
“I want to thank all of my players for their belief in my approach and for the excellent performances they delivered on court. We took all kind of obstacles, sometimes I even lost the way but our drive, our love for Volleyball ALWAYS WON. You gave me really big emotions and some of them were so big that I could hardly speak the next day! I will miss you! Also, I want to thank all the fans of the Hungarian women’s Volleyball team. Your support and enthusiasm made sure that we loved to play for our country. I will miss the beautiful anthem played at the start of each game and I will miss you singing ‘HAJRA MAGYAROK’ and ‘RIA, RIA, HUNGARIA!’ I want to thank everyone in Hungary for the warm welcome I received in your country. I discovered so many nice places and made so many good friends! Hungary will be FOREVER IN MY HEART! THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU”.
