The leaders of the current Russian Volleyball Championship Zenit-Kazan extended the contract with their head coach, Aleksey Verbov, until the end of the 2023–24 season.
The 40-year-old expert is literally a living legend of the Tatarstan giants, as he played seven seasons (2009/10 and between 2014 and 2019) and 238 matches for them as a libero, and now he’s commanding the club as a head coach.
The next season will be his fourth (2019/20 and between 2021 and 2024) in this role.
Under his leadership, Zenit won three Russian Cups (2019, 2021, and 2022) and the All-Russian Spartakiad (2022) under the flag of Tatarstan.
Moreover, Zenit are leaders of the current PARI Superliga!
