Are Italians the best at coaching?

by WoV

In the last few years Italian coaches are the most "wanted". If you look closely, many of them are at the helm of teams throughout Europe. We did research and we found out that from 52 teams in the CEV DenizBank Champions League for Men and Women, 14 are from Italy!


Giovanni Guidetti

Interesting, in the CL competition for Women, managements of the clubs have more trust in foreign coaches than domestic. From 24 teams, 13 are foreigners and what is the most interesting eight of them are Italians, and they are fighting for the same goal.

Eight of them are: Giovanni Guidetti (VakifBank Istanbul), Nicola Negro (Tauron MKS Dabrowa Gornicza), Marco Gaspari (Imoco Conegliano), Givanni Caprara (Rebecchi Piacenza), Carlo Parisi (Busto Arsizio), Lorenzo Micelli (Eczacibasi Vitra Ostanbul), Angiolino Frigoni (Rabita Baku), Massimo Barbolini (Galatasaray Daikin).

Next by number are Serbs: Zoran Terzić (Omichka Omsk), Svetlana Ilić (Dinamo Moscow), Dragutin Baltić (Volero Zurich) and Ratko Pavličević (Crvena zvezda)

Romania and Germany have two representatives and the others come from China, Brazil, Slovakia, France, Russia, Belgium, Netherlands and what is also intrerestnig the only one coach from Turkey Bulent Karslioglu trains Igtisadchi Baku from Azerbaijan although in CL there are three teams from Turkey.


Lorenzo Bernardi

In the CEV DenizBank Men`s Champions League there are 28 teams and the most numerous coacheas are from Italy, six of them. Beside Italian clubs – Lube Banca Marche Macerata (Alberto Giuliani), Copra Eloior Piacenza (Luca Monti) and Diatec Trentino (Roberto Serniotti) there are three more clubs with Italian coaches at the helm, Swiss Energy Investments Lugano (Mario Motta), Polish Jastrzebski Wegiel (Lorenzo Bernardi) and Belgian Noliko Maaseik (Vicenzo Di Pinto).

Russia and Bulgaria have three coahces; Genaddiy Shiipulin (Belogorie Belgorod), Andrey Voronkov (Lokomotiv Novosibirsk) and Vladimir Alekno (Zenit Kazan), also Radostin Stoytchev (Halkbank Ankara), Martin Stoev (Tomis Constanta) and Nayden Naydenov (Marek Union Ivkoni Dupnitsa).

Two coaches in the Champions League have Poles, Slovaks and Czechs, while Canada, Australia, Romania, Turkey, Belgium, Greece, France, Netherlands, Brazil, Serbia are at number one.
