Paulo Barros: “Our defence system worked well”


Shaoxing, China, December 5, 2018 – Praia Clube coach Paulo Barros Junior commended his team’s focus on defence against Altay Volleyball Club to earn their second victory in the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship on Wednesday.

Praia Clube coach Paulo Barros Junior
: “We had a good performance today. The players were very focused on applying a good tactical system in the match. We had a good serve. Our defence system worked well, our blockers gave their best attackers some trouble. The team is improving and that I think is important for us in this competition.”

Altay Volleyball Club coach Iurii Panchenko
: “We played better than yesterday. I hope we can continue improving our performance and get a win. It was very difficult to play a strong opponent like Praia Clube. They have Olympic champions on their side, but today we played much better.”

Altay Volleyball Club captain Sana Anurkulova: “It was a very difficult game for us. Our opponent had a strong block and a powerful serve, so it was hard to play against them. I think we played better in this match than yesterday.”
