Excellent setter gave the first interview after joining Zenit. He stated for the club’s official website that he wants to prove to the world that Iranian volleyball players can be successful in foreign leagues.

“I am finally in Kazan and everything is fine now. I had to wait for the visa for three weeks because of the New Year’s holidays, but I am happy because soon I will begin to play for one of the best teams in the world. All sports journalists from my home country have talked very much about this transfer, because I am the first Iranian volleyball player to play abroad. Let’s see what will happen” said Marouf and then continued:

“I played 12 seasons in Iranian league and I think it was time for me to try myself somewhere else. And I believe that the Russian league is the strongest in the world. Zenit has called me twice, and after the second invitation I changed my mind and agreed to sign a contract. For me, it is important that we win in all competitions, so that I can prove that Iranian volleyball players can be successful in foreign leagues too.”
