Congratulations to Rouzier.
Really showed to everyone first in World League and now in Europe that he is the best opposite now.
He’s played complete championship on highest level and pulled his NT from the edge to the throne. Respect!
I just can’t understand why the player like him lose time in Turkish league.
Why he doesn’t play in top 3 teams of Italy, Russia or Poland???
He has the quality and more.

what do you mean lose time here? strong league and good contract.

Viny October 19, 2015 - 12:37 am

He is not even in 5 top paid foreigners in Turkey…this is what I mean.
Not strong league and money way less than his level…what is he doing there???

giro October 18, 2015 - 11:32 pm

the best player of the championship…should be awarded as best opposite and mvp…

thay’s the question for his agent Gollini not for comments here.

I was just reading what you wrote. Tell me one team in Russia or Italy where he could substitute opposite that play there?

Alex Volley October 19, 2015 - 12:17 pm

Mascherata or Modena in Italy for example, he could go to Poland or Russia and find place in a couple of top teams of those leagues too, Turkey is not a bad league, it is actually quite strong and with decent money but with his level he could find spot in top teams of Italy, Poland or Russia for sure.

AlexVolley October 19, 2015 - 12:15 pm

Mascherata could be one team where he could replace the Opp player, or maybe Modena, that’ is only in Italy, he would find a couple of teams in Poland and Russia that are from the top of their leagues and where he could play instead of Turkey, which is not a bad league, it is actually quite good league but with his level he could find spot on several top teams in Italy, Poland or Russia for sure.

Axe October 19, 2015 - 1:46 pm

In Turkey, you cannot say league is strong. There are Halkbank, Ziratbank, Ismir and Galatasaray as strong teams. Every year the battle is between them. In Italy, Macerata has already 3!!! opposite players: Sabbi, Fei and Milikovic! In Modena could be a good solution for him, but he could get 1/2 of the money he is taking in Turkey! And he is not a player for Korea. Maybe Japan… And to be straight: team of France won the title, not Rouzier, Ngapeth, Tillie…

Ali Y October 19, 2015 - 2:40 pm

Apart from Russia, Halkbank could fight for the first spot in Italy and Poland. Arkas Izmir, Rouzier’s team, is the second best one in Turkey, where Urnaut, Gavin Schmitt, Tillie played once. In brief, stop advertising your league. Apart from Zenit and Belogorie, Arkas Izmir could play at least semi finals in Poland and Italy. Besides, Galatasaray, Ziraat Bankasi, Fenerbahce, IBB also could fight for a play off spot everywhere, except Russia.

That is not an issue.
League is not bad, too many domestic players in the court to be something more than that.
The main thing is that Sokolov, Nilson this season and Gavin last one, take 2x more money than Rouzier.
