“Old is the best.”
League experience was a factor that could never be ignored. On the 6th (local time) at 11:00 a.m., the 2023 KOVO (Korean Volleyball Federation) men’s tryouts held at the Hassan Doan Sport Complex in Istanbul, Turkey It wasn’t easy to find players who caught my eye.
On this day, 29 out of 40 participants participated in the practice game. Six of the remaining 11 will arrive in Istanbul on the 7th or 8th. I have not yet been able to verify my skills with my eyes. Five people were absent for various reasons.
In this tryout, 3 out of 7 clubs are preparing to renew contracts with foreign players who played last season. Three clubs, Korean Air (Lincoln), Korea Electric Power (Thais), and OK Financial Group (Leo), are planning to renew contracts with players who played an active role last season. It is almost certain. In addition, Ikbairi, who played for Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, and Viyena, who played for KB Insurance, are also likely to be seen in the V-League next season. Because he is a proven player, he has an advantage.
Prior to this tryout, KOVO provided videos of participating players to 7 clubs. Based on this, as a result of a preference survey, Igor Bogacek (Germany/203 cm/Outside Heater), Gabriel Candido (Brazil/198 cm/Apogee Spiker), and Abiud Chirchir (Kenya/200 cm/Apogee Spiker) paid attention. received. Yosbani Hernandez (Cuban-Italian, 201cm/outside hitter), who has experience in the V-League, was also pointed out as a player with a high possibility of nomination.
As a result of checking with my own eyes on the field, the voices of the managers of the 7 clubs were common. I heard the phrase ‘Old Hall is Myeong-Gwan’ over and over again.
Samsung Fire & Marine Manager Kim Sang-woo said, “Yosbani catches my eye. I picked Eddie in the Asia Quarter, so I’m watching for a player who will play an active role in the diagonal.” He went on to add, “Depending on the circumstances, we are also looking at Vijena as a candidate.”
KB Insurance coach Hu In-jeong said, “I’m worried. I can’t find a better player than Viyena. I can see Yosbani. I have to see who will join on the last day, but the notification of the renewal of Vijena is tomorrow at 6:00 pm, so this part will be discussed with KOVO. I think it will be necessary,” he said.
Coach Shin Young-cheol of Woori Card said, “Yosbani catches my eye the most. Among the players in today’s game, he knows volleyball the most. I think of Villena as well. I like it, but I think I need to keep an eye on his skills.”토스카지노
Hyundai Capital head coach Choi Tae-woong said, “I’m worried,” and said, “Yosbani looks the best. I think it should be included in the candidates. In terms of attack power, Arinze Calfin (Nigeria/215cm/Apogeit Spiker) and Matthew Naves (Canada/207cm/Apogeit Spiker) should be looked at more.”
There are variables. Among the players who have yet to arrive on the field, Jose Masso (Cuba/204cm/Aposite Spiker) and Christian Lawrence (Puerto Rico/202cm/Aposite Spiker) will check their final skills on the 8th.
I clearly confirmed the commonality that the former is the Myeong-gwan, but depending on the skills of these two players, it seems that the players who will board the plane to Korea will become clearer.
The tryout continues on the second day of the practice game on the morning of the 7th local time.
