It included a Champions League challenge, a very good salary and an opportunity to play among the top players in Europe. But, the problem was I could not play in the Champions League. Everyone tried to help me getting a permission from CEV. Ravenna, Zenit, the French Volleyball Federation… But, CEV has rejected the request” said excellent setter.
