“It was a surprise for us when last night we found out that Bakun, Brdjovic and Apalikov would not play. However, we decided to focus solely on our game. Gazprom-Ugra is a great team and they play with a style which is totally different from what we are used to. They play power Volleyball, taking a lot of risks from the service line, their block is incredibly high, but in the end we won because we also played with our own style. I am pleasantly surprised by the way this final was organised and the warm welcome the local fans deserved to us. Though their favourite team lost, we received a lot of congratulations and a nice photo shooting was organised at the end. I would like to thank everyone for such warm welcome. For us this is a first European title and you can only imagine how happy we are,” says Serniotti.
