The 2012/2013 Turkish League is going to be VERY VERY EXCITING this season!
Here’s Vakifbank’s 2012/2013 Roster:
Setters: Tuğçe Hocaoğlu, Naz Aydemir
Opposite Hitters: Jovana Brakocevic (SRB), Polen Uslupehlivan
Outside Hitters: Saori Kimura (JPN), Güldeniz Önal, Malgorzata Glinka (POL), Jelena Nikolic (SRB), Gözde Sonsırma
Middle Blockers: Christiane Fürst (GER), Ergül Avcı, Bahar Toksoy, Melis Gürkaynak
Liberos: Gizem Güreşen, Dilek Kınık
We wonder how coach Giovanni Guidetti will manage his players. What a star studded team! We have a feeling they’re going to win major tournaments this season, ie Turkish League and of course the prestigious Champions League.
Also, we’re so excited to see Saori’s connection with Naz Aydemir. Saori is so used to Takeshita’s setting while it’s going to be Naz’s first time setting a Japanese superstar who is more effective with quicker sets to the outside (position 4).
Turkish League fans will also get to see the showdown between Kim Yeon Koung of Fenerbahce and Saori K.
