The new command tower for Heungkuk Life Insurance in the women’s professional volleyball team has been decided.
Heungkuk Life Insurance announced on the 19th that it had “appointed former Turk Hava Yollari SK coach Marcello Abbondanza as the new head coach.토토사이트” Head coach Avon Danza is an Italian national and was born in 1970, and his contract runs until the 2024-25 season.
Regarding this, Heungkuk Life Insurance said, “The world-renowned manager, Abondanza Abondanza, entered the country on the 18th and concluded the contract.” Heungkuk Life Insurance is currently leading the team with coach Kim Dae-gyeong as acting manager.
Abondanza started his coaching career in the Italian league in 1996. He has served as coach of the Italian national team and head coach of the Bulgarian, Canadian and Greek national teams. He has been recognized for his leadership by leading world-class teams such as Azerbaijan’s Lavita Baku, Turkey’s Fenerbahce, and Italy’s Zanetti Bergamo.
Heungkuk Life Insurance explained the background of the appointment, saying, “Coach Abondanza is a top-notch coach who has been active in Europe’s leading leagues, and he is confident that he will be able to upgrade the team to the next level by introducing a European-style training system that he has never encountered before.” He added, “We will spare no support so that we can achieve good results in harmony with the players and coaching staff.”
Director Abondanza said, “It’s an honor to be the manager of Heungkuk Life Insurance and I’m happy to be able to greet Korean volleyball fans.” “I know the strengths of the Pink Spiders and how much Koreans love volleyball,” he said.
Heungkuk Life Insurance sacked former manager Kwon Soon-chan on January 2nd. The atmosphere in the team became chaotic, with the head coach, who caused conflict by giving instructions to former coach Kwon about the management of the squad, was sacked. Head coach Lee Young-soo resigned after serving as acting head coach for only one game, and Kim Ki-joong, the new head coach at Sunseon Girls’ High School, declined the appointment.
Coach Daekyung Kim has led the team as an acting manager. However, Heungkuk Life Insurance, centered on ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung, recently recaptured the first place over Hyundai Engineering & Construction.
In the midst of this, with the appointment of manager Abondanza, Heungkuk Life Insurance is more likely to rise. This is because I have good memories with Kim Yeon-kyung, the core of the team. Kim Yeon-kyung worked with director Abondanza for four years at Fenerbahce.
In particular, the two have won the league championship and the European Volleyball Federation (CEV) Cup at Fenerbahce from 2013 to 2017. It remains to be seen whether Heungkuk Life Insurance will overcome internal conflict and rise to the top.
