According to the Mehr news agency, citing the Volleyball Federation, our country’s national volleyball team will face Bulgaria in the second match of the third week of the League of Volleyball Nations tomorrow morning (Friday) at 07:00. The national team did not have an acceptable performance in the two weeks of the Volleyball League of Nations, and in the first match of the third week of the tournament, they faced France and suffered a heavy defeat. The national team went through many ups and downs to reach Anaheim, USA; Due to the problems of the Americans in the form of visas, some of the main players of the team and most importantly the head coach of the team are not present in America with the national team.
Sharifi: The absence of the head coach hurt us
Morteza Sharifi, regarding the meeting of the national volleyball teams of Iran and Bulgaria in the third week of the League of Nations in Anaheim, added: We had a bad game on Wednesday and unfortunately we lost to France 3-0 and I apologize to the people for this. We practiced today to make up for our mistakes and show better against Bulgaria. I hope we can play better and we will do our best. We still do not know enough about Bulgaria and the analysis meeting of this team will be held before the game.
He emphasized: The absence of a head coach, analyst and medical staff has caused a great damage to the Iranian team. It is true that the team hired a physiotherapist, but our medical staff knew the players’ bodies much better. I don’t know how far our voice reaches, but the absence of a head coach is very bad for us.
Ramezani: The absence of the head coach and analyst bothered us
Ali Ramezani, another national volleyball player, said about the meeting of the national volleyball teams of Iran and Bulgaria: After the match with France, we will prepare for the match against Bulgaria. We have some knowledge about the opponent and we will have an analysis session before the game.
He stated that we will use all our strength in the match against Bulgaria to play a good game and lead to victory, and emphasized: It is true that due to the absence of some players and some members of the technical staff, there is some deficiency in the Iranian team. But we should try as much as we can to see what the result will be.
Passor of the Iranian national volleyball team stated: So far, hosting has been relatively good, and only that they did not give the visas of the Iranian team in full, and we do not have a head coach and analyst, and this issue bothers the team a lot.
Muezzin: I have to deal with the situation
Mohammad Reza Moezen also said about the meeting of the national volleyball teams of Iran and Bulgaria: We know Bulgaria well and according to the information we have, except for Nikolov, it is almost the same team that we played against Shashan last year. All in all, we will try our best to have a good and regular game. I hope we can win the race.
Stating that there are problems with the absence of the head coach, some members of the technical staff and players, but we are trying to cope with these conditions, he clarified: We must think in such a way that these issues do not affect our focus too much. Hopefully, in the third week of the League of Nations, we will be able to come out of the field proud and victorious from the remaining three games.
