Coach Cesar Gonzalez Hernandez (hereafter referred to as Cesar), who is holding the helm of the Korean women’s volleyball team, has joined the national team in Turkey. The women’s national team is currently training at the Jincheon National Training Center in Jincheon, North Chungcheong Province.
Coach Han Yu-mi and Kim Yeon-kyung (Heungkuk Life Insurance), who joined as an advisor, are with the players. Coach Cesar originally planned to return to Korea and go to the Jincheon National Training Center after completing the Turkiye League schedule, but the plan went awry.
It is because of the Turkiye League schedule. Cesar is also a power analysis coach at Turkiye Bakibank. The Turkiye League is currently in the postseason schedule.

After the playoffs, the championship match is being held. Bakibank finished second in the regular league in the 2022-23 season with 23 wins and 3 losses (68 points). However, they failed to advance to the championship match in the playoffs and met THY (Turkish Airlines) in the third place match.
Bakibank won both the first and second games against THY on the 8th and 9th (Korean time) with a set score of 3-1. This completes the league schedule.
However, Cesar does not come to Korea. The Korea Volleyball Association (hereinafter referred to as the Volleyball Association) said in a phone call with ‘Inews 24’ on the 11th, “(Director Cesar) seems to have decided that it is better to join in Turkey than to come to Korea and then leave again.”
The women’s national team is scheduled to leave for Turkey on the 21st for field training. This is to prepare for the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) hosted by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB). This year’s VNL kicks off on the 30th and the intercontinental round runs until July 2nd.
Starting with Brazil (Brasilia), ‘Cesar’ will hold VNL schedules in Korea (Suwon), Japan (Nagoya), Hong Kong, and Thailand (Bangkok). The Volleyball Association explained, “Due to the great earthquake that occurred in Turkey and Syria in February, the end of the Turkiye League was pushed back.”

The Volleyball Association added, “(Director Cesar) is in constant communication with coach Han and advisor Kim.” But there are also concerns. This is because the players and coaching staff spent almost a month while the head coach was away. The national team was convened on the 25th of last month (April).
Meanwhile,토스카지노 a change occurred in the women’s championship match of the Turkiye League.
Exashibashi, who was ranked as the top contender for the championship with 26 wins and 76 points in the regular league, was caught in both the first and second matches by Fenerbahçe in the championship match.
Fenerbahce ranked third in the regular league with 22 wins and 4 losses (66 points). In the first match held on the 8th, Fenerbahce overcame Exassivasie with a 3-1 (20-25 25-14 25-21 25-17) come-from-behind victory.
