The 26-year old world volleyball star has commented about his team and how much France means to him.

With 80% of the team, we started in volleyball together. We were in the youth national team. We won two European titles with this generation.  We have a family-like atmosphere in our group. We have played together for 15 years. Moments of difficulty make us stronger. This is very important for us. We are so happy to play for France. We are so happy to take photos with the fans. We try to work with the journalists. We will not place French volleyball on top of sports in France. It is not easy, because all sports in France are so strong. But we are so happy that the hall is full – it is very good for volleyball in France.”

Player of Modena had to miss the World League challenges so far because of the injury.

I had this abdominal problem three weeks ago and I need ten days more before I can start playing volleyball again,” explains Ngapeth.
