The coach of the national volleyball team Nikolay Zhelyazkov will do the most logical thing after the loud failure that our country suffered at the World Championship in Poland. The Bulgarians recorded their worst ever performance, finishing in an unenviable twentieth place.

After the two losses to Poland and the USA, the cherry on the cake was the 2:3 defeat by Mexico, the absolute volleyball dwarf. Zhelyazkov announced his intention to resign when the 2022 World Cup squad was withdrawn.

Bulgaria finished in 20th place, and behind us were only unpretentious teams such as Qatar, Puerto Rico, Cameroon and China – all teams that are far from the Bulgarian traditions in sports.

“I will submit my resignation to the governing council of the federation. I think this is the right thing to do. I have not thought about what I will do if my resignation is not accepted and I cannot think about it at the moment. However, I think this is what I have to do.” , the selector was categorical about his decision.

Thus, if his resignation is accepted, Zhelyazkov will leave his post in less than a year. The former central blocker succeeded Silvano Prandi in January.
