On the eve of the quarter-final match against Serbia at the 2021 CEV European Championship, the Dutch Volleyball Federation (Nevobo) excluded its middle-blocker Fabian Plak from the team for violating discipline but did not give details on the matter.
It never explained the specific reason, but now the player himself decided to speak up, by revealing what exactly happened.
“The last couple of days my phone exploded with messages about what happened during the European Championship. Just to be clear for everyone; I went to the bar for a few drinks with some teammates, so I left the corona bubble during the tournament. The federation decided to send me home after this. Just to be clear to everyone and disprove all the rumors,” he posted.
