The head of the Ukrainian Volleyball Federation could not contain his emotions

The President of the Ukrainian Volleyball Federation (UVF) Mykhailo Melnyk said that the head coach of the Ukrainian national volleyball team, Raul Lozano, is "in a trance" because the leaders of the "yellow and blue" team refused to come to the training camp. Before the debut season of the Golden Euroleague, the Argentine received a "different" team at his disposal, which he expected to assemble before the first May matches.

"The coach [Lozano] himself called. We talked to him – he's very disappointed. He is a world-renowned top coach. He says he's in a trance, that he came to see one team and then another. He has never seen anything like this before. There is no reason why players would refuse to play for the national team, especially during the war. They are traitors," Melnyk explained in a commentary to Suspilne.Sport.
