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.

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.
