WL2017/Coaches in Tehran set up an Impressive Momentum
Tehran, Iran, 8 June 2017 – The Coaches of Argentina, Belgium, Iran, and Serbia shared their ideas before the starting day of the world league in week 2.
Julio Velasco, Argentina’s Head Coach: I am happy to be here again in Iran. We have difficult group. I hope we can play good volleyball. We have some problem with our players who are not here in this tournament. However, it is very important for us to improve after Olympic Games with young players and to get confidence to the first level teams like Iran, Serbia, and Belgium.
Vital Hynen, Belgium’s Head Coach: I was here in 2013 and I was really impressed. I told my players this time so many positive things about Iran and we are going to have a great match in front of 12000 people. I try to make joy because it was really a big experience the last time. I remember once we lost and I also remember the victory. I hope to play that way to have a great start. My players are all looking forward to play in Iran especially about the host that would be something different.
Igor Kolakovic, Iran’s Head Coach: First of all, I want to say that I am so happy I found the opportunity to play at home before our great spectators in the second week of the world league. I hope to play good volleyball.
Nikola Grbic, Serbia’s Head Coach: Today volleyball is equal and there is no favorite. You only need five minutes to win or lose a set or a game if you lose your concentration. Therefore, in every match you need to be a 100 percent concentrated. My first goal is to play as best as possible against Argentina. We are in a tough and difficult group but I expect a good volleyball.
