This national team season, Polish volleyball players won everything they could. Now Nikola Grbic faces new challenges. The selector indicated who would definitely not go to the Olympic Games.
The president of PZPS, Sebastian Świderski, admitted in an interview with Interia that the main goal set for Nikola Grbic was promotion to Paris. – But coach Nikola Grbic cannot give up and does not want to take an easier path. He always wants to win everything and go for more victories. He won’t need to be motivated next year. He will certainly want to defend the title in the Nations League and bring back a medal from the Olympic Games. With this goal in mind, we fly to Paris. This is a key event for us, admitted the president of the Polish Volleyball Association.
Nikola Grbic on the squad for the Olympic Games
In an interview for Polsat Sport, the Serbian coach was asked about what he would consider when creating the squad for the Olympic Games. – There are no players who are already in Paris. I don’t want to make the mistake that coaches make by saying “whatever happens, you will definitely play,” he assured.
– Of course, I already have some ideas. I want everyone to understand that this is Polish volleyball. These are not the names of the players, these are not their individual careers. This is not my career. This is Polish volleyball – if we win, Polish volleyball will win – he added.
Nikola Grbic pointed out who will definitely not go to the Olympic Games
Nikole Grbic pointed out who will definitely not be in the squad for the Olympic Games. – If everyone works from this perspective, if everyone thinks about the well-being of the team, whether they are in it or not, then we will have a chance. This is something I always ask the players to try not to put their own ego above the good of the team. Because together with the team we will win, he continued.
– If you want to have the status of a star or a person to whom these rules do not apply, maybe it is better that you are not here, because this is a team sport – he concluded.
