At the men’s professional volleyball face-to-face tryout held for the first time in four years, coaches’ concerns are deepening as players who give the impression that they are better than existing players are not noticed.
The Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO), which is conducting a men’s foreign tryout in Istanbul, Turkey, postponed the contract submission schedule for new contract players to the day of the draft on the 7th (Korean time).
Originally, it was decided to submit it by the day before the draft in local time, but since there are players joining on the last day, seven clubs negotiated to decide whether to renew the contract after seeing all the players, and after the last practice game before the draft (8th local time) At 1:00 PM (Korean time, 7:00 PM on the 8th), it was decided whether to renew the contract.
This is because the player at the top of the preference survey conducted by KOVO prior to this tryout comes on the last day. Jose Masso (26, 2m4) of Cuba is the main character. Christian Lawrence (20, Puerto Rico, 2m2), who is at the top of the preference survey, will also join on the 8th, but most teams are interested in Maso.
The evaluation of Maso seen through the video is close to Keita, who led KB Insurance to runner-up in the last 2021-22 V-League. Although he is not superior to Keita, he is evaluated as having 80 to 90% skill. Of course, it can be interpreted that the evaluation may be different when you see it in person on the spot, so you are trying to make a decision after seeing it yourself.
Director Kwon Young-min of KEPCO, who virtually confirmed the renewal of the contract with Thais, said of Maso, “There was elasticity and power in the video,” and “The video was sent by collecting only good scenes, so I think you can know exactly when you see it in person.” Director Kim Sang-woo also showed high expectations, saying, “He was good in height, jump, and strength,” but “I don’t know if I can show all my individual abilities because it’s the first time I match with the setters, and most of them don’t come in 100% condition.” said.
In the two days before seeing Matso, Yosubani was rated the best.
Hyundai Capital coach Choi Tae-woong, who worked with Yosubani, said, “I am playing more maturely than then.” “I have good strength and fighting. He also gets along well with the players. It was evaluated as a player with many advantages,” and coach 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
So far, unless Maso puts in a great performance, Yosubani is likely to be picked first. Korean Air, who became the unified champion for three consecutive years, has confirmed a renewal contract with Lincoln, who won the championship together for two years, and OK Financial Group has also decided to renew the contract with Leo, the top scorer last season. It is highly likely that the other four teams will be thinking until the end about renewing their contracts and participating in the draft.
Hyundai Capital coach Choi Tae-woong, who had to select players unconditionally because Oreoll, who was with us last season, did not apply for participation this time, said, “I can see about 3 players.” It’s like,” he said.
KB Insurance coach Hu In-jeong, who is in conflict between the renewal of the contract with Villena and the draft, said, “If the participants are at a similar level to Villena, we will renew the contract with Villena.” . Isn’t a player like that more suitable for our team?”
Woori Card, who suffered from Agamez’s frequent injuries, is likely to participate in the draft. Coach Shin Young-chul of Woori Card said, “I was able to accurately evaluate the players by looking at them myself. In the video, he only showed what he was good at, but when I saw him in person, his technique and skills seemed to be lacking. It seems that only the height of the players has improved.” I don’t know who to choose. I think I will have to check with the coaches until tomorrow.”
On the other hand, on the morning of the 8th local time, five newly joined players such as Maso and Lawrence will be added to play the final practice game, and in the afternoon, through a draft, players will be decided in Korea for the 2023-24 V-League.
