Professional volleyball men’s coaches are in deep trouble over foreign players who will decide farming for the year.
The Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) will hold the ‘2023 KOVO Men’s Foreign Player Tryout’ at the Turkiye Istanbul Chekmekoy Sport Complex from the 6th (Korean time) to the 8th.
Among the 86 men’s applicants received from February 20th to March 28th, 40 players who went through evaluation by each club were put on the final list, and among the players who played an active part in the V-League in the 2022-2023 season, The final 46 players, including players, participated. Five players, including Dan Leo Andrich, did not attend the tryout.
There are few players in this tryout who give the impression that they are better than the players they played last season. Most of the reviews said that the players who were placed at the top of the priority list through video analysis were different when they actually saw them. A club official said, “It is true that the skills of the players who applied this year are lower than before.”
As of the afternoon of the 8th, Korean Air and OK Financial Group are the only clubs that have confirmed the renewal of the contract with the original player. Korean Air confirmed to accompany Lincoln, the apologetic spiker who has been the main player in the championship for the past two years, and OK Financial Group also decided to renew the contract with Leo, the top scorer last season. KEPCO is said to have decided to renew the contract with Thais.
The remaining 4 teams are continuing to worry about renewing contracts and participating in the draft. Among them, Hyundai Capital must select a new player unconditionally in the draft because the existing foreign Oreoll does not participate in the tryout.
Hu In-jeong, coach of KB Insurance, who is in conflict with Villena over contract renewal and draft, said, “If the participants are at a similar level to Villena, we will renew the contract with Villena.” A player like that is more suitable for our team.”
The most eye-catching player in the tryout is Yosuba, who has been active on the Korean stage in the past. Yosbani played for OK Financial Group, Hyundai Capital, and Korean Air. He could not play many games due to injury during the OK Financial Group and Hyundai Capital days, but during the Korean Air days, he joined as a substitute for Vijena and led Korean Air’s unified victory.
Hyundai Capital coach Choi Tae-woong, who had been with Yosubani in the past, said, “I am playing more maturely than then.” “I have good strength and fighting. He also gets along well with the players. He is a player with many strengths.” Samsung Fire & Marine Manager Kim Sang-woo said, “There is a basic skill and sense for volleyball. It is the level of knowing volleyball. He can’t be said to have a great performance, but he is a proven player.” 토스카지노
Jose Masso, from Cuba, is ranked number one in the nomination along with Yosbani. Matso was ranked at the top of the best in the preference survey conducted prior to the tryout.
The club’s evaluation of Maso, seen through the video, is comparable to Keita, who led KB Insurance’s runner-up in the 2021-2022 season. Although not superior to Keita, he was evaluated as having 80-90% of his skills. KEPCO director Kwon Young-min said, “In the video, he had elasticity and power,” and director Kim Sang-woo also commented, “He was good in height, jump, and strength.”
Matso, who did not participate until the second day, appears on the last day. The seven men’s clubs decided to participate in the tryout after checking some players who only participated on the last day, including Maso, and agreed to submit the renewal contract at 7:00 pm on the 8th, after the last practice game before the draft.
Meanwhile, the tryout lottery event will be held on the 8th at 10pm.
