Since Stelian Moculescu started coaching the team back in 1997, the club has played a total of 343 matches in the Bundesliga – including the Playoffs – totaling 313 wins and only 33 losses.
Moculescu has hence a great ratio (90.35%): “This is not bad” says the Romanian-born head coach.
He still has got sweet memories from his debut: “That should have been against Fellbach. We lost the first set there and the atmosphere got icy in our old sports hall. Fortunately we turned the score around and won the game 3:1, so we had a happy end” he recalls.
He still has some more memories to share: “Once we scored a 15-0 against Wuppertal that used to be one of our major competitors by that time. I remember we achieved the same as we played BERLIN and another time we stamped a 15-4. They did not score at all for at least 45 minutes”.
On Wednesday, as they crossed their ways in the Bundesliga, VfB delighted a home crowd of 2’800 fans by finishing it off with a 3:1 win (19-25, 25-19, 25-22, 32-30).
“It was a sensational match for our supporters” says Brazilian spiker Idi. “We did never give up and that was the key for our success”.
