Coach Lavarini, who led the Polish national team to Korea to prepare for the Volleyball Nations League to be held in the Philippines next week, shared the feelings he felt when he met Korea as an enemy last week.

[Stefano Lavarini / Polish women's volleyball team coach: I felt very strange.

Seeing the other players on the other side, such as Park Jung-ah, Lee Joo-ah, and Yeom Hye-sun, I even shed a few tears.] He

was calm in the match.

Lavarini defeated Korea 3-0 with his characteristic passionate leadership.

Our national team, which is undergoing a generation change due to the retirement of veterans such as Kim Yeon-kyung and Yang Hyo-jin, lost all 4 matches in the first week, including the Poland match, 3-0 and fell to the bottom.

Coach Lavarini gave cool advice to our national team in crisis.

[Stefano Lavarini / Polish women's volleyball team coach: Don't wait for the new Kim Yeon-kyung, we need to raise the overall level of Korean volleyball a lot.

Meeting a player like Kim Yeon-kyung again is like a miracle.]

Coach Lavarini delivered a message of support while thanking the Korean fans who still welcome him.

[Stefano Lavarini / Polish women's volleyball team coach: At the beginning, the situation is difficult.

It takes patience.

Thank you for giving me so much love after the Olympics.

thank you

I'll come again!]
