Tehran, Iran, June 8, 2017 – Coaches of Argentina, Belgium, Iran, and Serbia shared their ideas in the press conference ahead of the kickoff of the World League in Week 2.

Julio Velasco, Argentina’s head coach, said: “I am happy to be here again in Iran. We have difficult group. I hope we can play good volleyball. We have some problems with our players who are not here in this tournament. However, it is very important for us to improve after the Olympic Games with our young players gaining confidence to tactically and technically match Iran, Serbia, and Belgium.”

Vital Hynen, Belgium’s head coach said: “I was here in 2013 and I was really impressed. I told my players this time so many positive things about Iran and we are going to have a great match in front of 12,000 people. I try to enjoy here again because it was really a big experience the last time. I remember once we lost and I also remember the victory. I hope to play that way to have a great start. My players are all looking forward to playing in Iran especially against the host side which would be something different.

Igor Kolakovic, Iran’s head coach said: “First of all, I want to say that I am so happy I found the opportunity to play at home before our great spectators in the second week of the World League. I hope to play good volleyball.”

Nikola Grbic, Serbia’s head coach: “Today volleyball is equal and there is no favorite. You only need five minutes to win or lose a set or a game if you lose your concentration. Therefore, in every match you need to concentrate 100 percent in it. My first goal is to play as best as possible against Argentina. We are in a tough and difficult group but I expect a good volleyball here.”
