The Bulgaria Men’s Volleyball National Team member Tsvetan Sokolov allegedly received a mega offer from Lokomotiv.


The famous opposite hitter Sokolov received a jumbo offer from a club competing for the Russian title with his current employers Zenit-Kazan, Gian Luca Pasini revealed in his blog. The leaders in the Russian Superliga would like to hire Sokolov at the end of the season despite the fact that he has a 3-year contract with Zenit worth 900,000 euros per season. Sportal.bg added that the club based in Novosibirsk isn’t the only one interested in Sokolov’s services. His former club Cucine Lube Civitanova from Italy is also in the race for his signature, although the information has so far been denied by the world and European champions.

The same source added that Zenit see the Pole Bartosz Bednorz from Leo Shoes Modena (Italy) as Sokolov’s replacement in case Bulgarian really leaves them. Bednorz would be paired up with the Frenchman Earvin Ngapeth, who’s getting closer to sign a new contract with the club from Kazan.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
