“I have realized that the tactics I give my players during the match using hand gestures specific to volleyball, were being leaked to our opponent’s bench in a way against fair play by a member of our opponent’s technical staff, who sat at the Dinamo Krasnodar scoutman desk. Russian player Tatiana Kosheleva’s -who sat right next to this technical staff member mentioned above since she was out of Dinamo Krasnodar roster for this match due to her injury- efforts to make this incident, which took place between me and a member of Dinamo Krasnodar technical staff, look like as if it took place between me and her and to take the matter to a completely irrelevant scope via what she shares in her social media accounts is unacceptable. Volleyball is a game that is played within fair play rules and we are part of this game. In this context; despite how right we were we did not even react that to the situation when our opponent’s technical staff’s pored water on the ground right before the match point, just to cool down the game, or even preventing moppers from doing their work. We consider the player’s claims and this ugly discourse as parts of a strategy to create an unnecessary tension prior to the rematch that we will play on Saturday in Krasnodar. But we will not fall for it. We will prepare ourselves the best way possible for the final’s decisive match and we will fight until the last ball drops on the floor to bring that cup to our country.”
