Polish media and fans are wondering – how long will they wait to have International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) allow Wilfredo León to compete with the Polish Men’s Volleyball National Team?




“Basic rules of effective diplomacy and art of negotiation are patience and discretion. We are confident that we are in the midst of discussions with the federations: FIVB, NORCECA and Cuban. The Brazilian federation has started action on Leal earlier, and the conclusion of their difficult negotiations (Leal is allowed to play for Brazilian NT) proves that a healthy compromise is possible. We work on León’s case in such a way,” Janusz Uznański, the spokesman of the Polish Volleyball Federation said for “Super Express”, calming down fans in his country after FIVB granted Yoandy Leal’s request for change of sport nationality into Brazilian.

León himself expressed disappointment about the fact that FIVB did not solve his case.
