Legendary Cuban player Leonel Marshall signed with the Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship side Bursa Büyükşehir Belediyesi.


The 40-year-old outside hitter Marshall strengthened the squad of Bursa for the ongoing season in the AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi. Thus, he returned to play in Turkey after four seasons. Marshall’s last team in this country prior to Bursa was Arkas Spor in the 2014/15 season.

Cuban is well-known for his outstanding vertical jump of 3.83m, which is considered the No.1 of all time and which still doesn’t fade. Marshall, who applied for changing the sports nationality to Italian in 2017, spent the last season in Portugal, playing for Sporting Clube Portugal. Bursa are currently fifth in the Efeler Ligi regular season charts with 5-3 and 14 points.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
