Giovanni Guidetti, the coach of VakıfBank İstanbul, was ecstatic after demolition of fierce rivals from Turkey, Fenerbahçe Grundig İstanbul, in the semifinals of the CEV Champions League Final Four in Montichiari. These teams are known by playing in five sets almost every time when they meet. This time it was only in three sets...




„Surprise, right? I think that in the last ten games we played against Fenerbahce, minimum eight were finished in tie-break. They are great team, really strong and… maybe, we are strong too (laugh). I think that in this kind of tournament, in the Final Four, everything can happen. We played particularly disciplined. We attacked where we wanted to attack, we had courage, we defended couple of balls more in important moments and it made the difference,“ Italian expert stated to our reporter.

Guidetti was asked to explain amazing turnaround of his team in the second set.  

„We were really strong not to give up. We kept going with strong serves, our block and defense were also strong. We took two or three balls in transition to put them down. Normally, when Fenerbahce are in situations like this, they play Kim, Kim, Kim… to find solution. Luckily for us, they did not find a solution,“ he said.

The decision of Guidetti to put American Kimberly Hill into line-up as from the second set turned out as pretty wise…

„Yes, well I’m lucky to be the coach of Vakifbank. Like I say every time, Vakifbank is the team of 14 from which six players start the game. So, when one coach have MVP of the World Championship on the bench, he is a lucky coach (laugh),“ coach of ’Vakif’ concluded.
