After he responded to the statement of Ivan Zaytsev that Zenit Kazan is “killing” the Russian Championship, Alexander Volkov also shared his opinion about the Italian team and how they won the silver medal at the Rio Olympics.”
“Italy won a medal because they had a team of foreigners. Exclude Ivan Zaytsev and Osmany Juantorena from the starting lineup and start searching for the Italian players. Plus, there was Oleg Antonov among the subs. In Russia, there is a limit of foreign players per club. We put more attention to the young players, while now we need to rejuvenate the national team. We need to give a chance to the younger players. We must not focus on results immediately. We need to think about the Olympic games in Tokyo in 2020,” said Volkov.
