Vadim Kuznetsov. Volleyball players of Russian national team have to fight for a place in the final of the European championship, said RIA Novosti former coach of the national team Oleg moliboga.
The Russian volleyball players will start at the European Championships-2019 12 September match against Turkey.
“I believe that Russia should fight for a place in the final of the European championship. Our task is first or second place. Among the favorites would have called another national team of Poland, which has always been a decent team, and now even intensified Wilfredo Leon. We need to play our own game and not look at rivals,” said moliboga on the phone.
For the first time at the European Championships will perform 24 teams, the tournament will be held in four countries – France, Slovenia, Belgium and the Netherlands.
“This expansion is a good thing. It is wrong when the weak of the team poking around in its juice, and they play, they will benefit. Those who are stronger, it is also a plus. Will be able to play the ones who usually spends little time on the court. The more teams, the better,” said the former coach of Russia.
“The tournament is long, it is important to distribute power, but all under the same conditions. The coach’s task to bring the players in the best shape to the playoffs,” added moliboga.
