PlusLiga volleyball players are struggling with a demanding calendar.

One of the volleyball experts surprised with an ambiguous opinion about “groaning” after the Jastrzębski Węgiel match. Internet users do not hide their nervousness, suggesting that the statement refers to the players of the three-time Champions League winner.
The Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle volleyball players, like representatives of other clubs, can talk about an exhausting period. The teams play every three days, and the cup winners will soon compete in the Champions League, which will also extend the two-games-per-week system. The bodies of the top players, who were very tired during the national team season, are now taking an even harder toll.
The expert shocked with his statement about volleyball players groaning from fatigue
It seems that fans perfectly understand the concerns and appeals of volleyball players like Łukasz Kaczmarek and Aleksander Śliwka. They are aware that playing so often may lead to further injuries, which does not bode well for the 2024 national team season. ZAKSA is in serious trouble, as Marcin Janusz, Wojciech Żaliński and Daniel Chitigoi have already dropped out due to injuries. The residents of Kędzierzyn had to react and quickly bring in new players (Jakub Szymański and Radosław Gil, who will help the team when the marathon of games starts every three days.
Unexpectedly, Maciej Jarosz, a former volleyball player and current television expert, stands against the common opinion regarding a difficult calendar. After Thursday’s match between Jastrzębski Węgiel and Enea Czarni Radom, the commentator of the match in Polsat Sport praised the Polish champion’s players for not “whining” about having to play a lot. Although he did not officially mention what this statement was referring to, Internet users quickly guessed that it was a thorn in Tuomas Sammelvuo’s team. In recent days, Łukasz Kaczmarek and Aleksander Śliwka gave high-profile interviews related to the difficult schedule.
– Applause for the people of Jastrzębie. I like Mendez’s leadership of the team. I like the attitude of the players – everyone is ready and available. They are in good shape. There is no whining that there is too much playing or that they are tired. They play because it is their profession – said Jaszusz after the match ended with Jastrzębski Węgiel’s victory.
