RUS M: Scandal in Russia! Pavlov accuses his former club – “How can they not be ashamed?”

There is an ongoing trial in Russia, and volleyball players are the witnesses.



It’s all about Gubernya Nizhny Novgorod. This club declared bankruptcy last year and therefore ceased to exist, but it still owes a lot of money to their former players and coaches, starting with Plamen Konstantinov, Nikolay Pavlov, Alexey Ostapenko

Apparently, Gubernya owes around 6 million Euros to their former members, while the players got very angry when the club officials suddenly created a “new club” and started competing under a new name in the Russian B League. That new club, of course, has no debts and can work without any problems.

“You cannot do such things” says Nikolay Pavlov, former player of Gubernya and the current member of Lokomotiv Novosibirsk. “We will prove on court that you cannot simply create a new club and immediately enter the Russian league system, without settling previous debts. No one was receiving salary in Gubernya. Head coach Plamen Konstantinov did not receive 20 salaries (!!!), while he was paying other coaches in his staff with his own money!” says Pavlov.

We are about to see what will happen with this case and what will be the decision of the Russian Volleyball Federation regarding the “new” Gubernya.
