#Transfers: Zenit Kazan Vice-President confirms arrival of Sokolov and confirmation of Alekno
Management of the Russian Volleyball top team of Zenit Kazan confirmed hiring of Tsvetan Sokolov!
Zenit Vice-President Ilham Rakhmatullin confirmed speculations of engaging the last season’s highlight for Cucine Lube Civitanova: the Bulgarian opposite Tsvetan Sokolov.
“Zenit Kazan always have maximum tasks. And next season is no exception. We will maintain our brand and will try to regain lost titles. The backbone of the team is saved, with a certain reboot waiting for us, as the reception changes. The opposite hitter Tsvetan Sokolov comes to us, and Maksim Mikhaylov will become the outside hitter. He agreed to it in the interests of the team,” Rakhmatullin stated for Biznes Online and added that Vladimir Alekno will remain the head coach of the club and will be assisted by Aleksey Verbov, after his retirement.
