The 2018/19 Russian Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists Zenit Saint-Petersburg announced that they appointed Tuomas Sammelvuo new head coach!

 

The rumor from a month ago has been confirmed - the new head coach of Zenit Saint-Petersburg is the Finnish expert Tuomas Sammelvuo.

Thus, Zenit hired a coach that was involved in their elimination from the playoff semifinals last season. Sammelvuo went all the way with Kuzbass Kemerovo, winning the first-ever national championship for the club from Siberia.

This summer was very successful for the Finnish coach as he led Russia men’s National Team to the gold medal in the FIVB Nations League and winning promotion to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Kuzbass did not find a replacement for Sammelvuo yet. Some Russian media speculate that Gheorghe Crețu will take over their bench. Last season, the Romanian expert coached Asseco Resovia Rzeszów, Poland.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
