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.

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

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

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

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
