Coach Abondanza: “If your performance is not good, I can help you, but I can’t help you with your attitude.”
A match between Heungkuk Life Insurance and Hyundai Engineering & Construction in the professional volleyball V-League women’s division held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 20th.
There is a lot of talk about the skills of Heungkuk Life Apogit spiker Jelena Mrazenovic (registered name Jelena), who is in her third season in the women’s professional volleyball division.
He has been on the chopping block due to his recent poor performance, and coach Marcello Abondanza even said, ‘We are considering a replacement, but there are realistic difficulties.’
Regarding the fact that some fans sent a ‘protest truck’ to the headquarters of Heungkuk Life Insurance in Gwanghwamun, Seoul, demanding the replacement of Jelena ahead of the GS Caltex game held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 17th, coach Abondanza said, “The method is different (from other countries), but the player “If the performance is bad, fans can talk about it,” he said.
Coach Abondanza, who had removed Jelena from the starting list in the match against GS Caltex, replaced her at the end of the first set.
Yelena, who played as a substitute in the first and second sets, maintained her position as a starter from the third set, but scored only 12 points and had an attack success rate of 37.04%, and the team lost with a set score of 1-3.
After the game, Coach Abondanza increased his criticism of Jelena.

Coach Abondanza pointed out, “We started on the bench because our performance was not good. We substituted in to increase blocking, but it did not have much effect.”
Yelena showed a poor performance in the Korea Expressway Corporation match on the 12th, scoring 8 points and having an attack success rate of 20%.
Although the numbers were better than that day, Coach Abondanza waved the score sheet and raised his voice, saying, “As you can clearly see, the performance is not good. As the numbers show, it is no secret.”
He then went on to say, “If your performance is not good, we can help you, but we can’t do anything about your (bad) attitude,” and even made a remark that could be interpreted as Yelena not showing motivation.
Regardless of the sport, most coaches try to protect their players instead of publicly criticizing them.
Publicly expressing dissatisfaction through the media, like Coach Abondanza, can only be seen when a farewell is imminent or when trust in a player has been lost and the club is trying to pressure the club to replace him. 스포츠토토맨
