Finnish coach Tuomas Sammelvuo has stepped down as coach of the Russian men’s volleyball team. This was stated by the General Secretary of the All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VVF), Alexander Yaremenko.

“So it was fate. We wanted to renew the contract with him, but what happened happened. Now the new deal is irrelevant both to Russia, which has no national team schedule, and to the coach, who could be under serious pressure at home. Therefore, on its own, it all came to nothing, ”he is quoted by Sport-Express.

According to Yaremenko, the head coach of the national team will be appointed after the results of the Spartakiad.

WFV President Stanislav Shevchenko in an interview with RIA Novosti said that he would not call the situation with Sammelvuo’s resignation. “Sammelvuo’s contract ended in January, we decided not to renew it. Causes? This is an internal presidium matter,” he said.

Shevchenko specified that Sammelvuo’s successor would be determined after the completion of the Russian championship and Spartakiad. “Based on the results of these two events, we will make a decision. I will not give the names of the candidates, but it will be a Russian specialist. There are three or four coaches who could lead the team,” said the head of the federation.
