Russian media reported that Russia Men’s Volleyball national team head coach Tuomas Sammelvuo will take over Zenit Saint Petersburg. His current employer, All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VFV), denied that he signed, but...

 

The President of the All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VFV) Stanislav Shevchenko comfirmed that Sammelvuo is in talks with the Superliga club.

“I know that Zenit Saint Petersburg are negotiating with Tuomas (Sammelvuo), but I don’t know how did it end. We’re in contact with both the coach and Zenit, we’re in control of the situation. As far as I know, the contract hasn’t been signed yet,“ Shevchenko said for TASS.

A 43-year-old Finnish expert Sammelvuo has another employer, Kuzbass Kemerovo, at whose helm he has been since 2016. He led the team to a historic championship title last season. The Executive Director of the club Sergey Lomako also commented on the rumors of Sammelvuo’s transfer to Zenit.

“Tuomas Sammelvuo is still the head coach of Kuzbass Kemerovo. Everything else at the moment is a rumor. Sammelvuo is with us, he has a valid contract. We received no official announcements from either Tuomas or Zenit. According to the plan, Sammelvuo now works in the Russian team and then returns to work in our club,” Kuzbass official told RIA Novosti.

I like her. I think she has improved more than Gunes but Gunes is younger. Maybe that's why she got a 3 year contract instead of Gunes's two. Reply
