After winning the eighth French Men’s Volleyball Championship title, Tours made several changes in their roster for the 2019/20 season.


As it is known from earlier, Tours appointed country’s legendary libero Hubert Henno head coach and hired Nicolas Rossard from Berlin Recycling Volleys, Germany, to replace him in the roster.

As far as other transfer activities recently, Tours signed American middle blocker Daniel McDonnell from Tourcoing. A 30-year-old player actually returned to Tours after four seasons.

Prior to McDonnell, the Ligue A Masculine champions engaged another American, also a middle blocker - Price Jarman (Vôlei UM Itapetininga, Brazil), Czech setter Matyáš Démar (VK Lvi Praha, the Czech Republic), his compatriot – outside hitter Adam Bartoš (Nice, returned to Tours after three years), and Serbian outside hitter Konstantin Čupković (Fenerbahçe, Turkey, returned to Tours after one season).

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

So Ebrar out and Haak will be replaced ? I suppose Ezcacibasi will respond, Kim is definately not in her league, i think Tijana need some partner, and Natalia is not the one. I still cant see Egonu moving from Italian league to Turkey, that must be some great payment to do so. Otherwise, i would like to see Brakocevic & Tijana in same club, no other option to respond to Vakif. Unless Natalia and Kim will push their game. Maybe Tijana should go to Novara, her season if nulled with this team. Reply

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply
