  • Maggie is my favourate player, too.
    I got to know her in 2008 Montreux Volley Masters. In my memory, she was an outside attacker at first and turn to be an opposite a year later. At the first sight i thought, wow, how amazing she is, and as i expected, she became a top star in Germany NT.
    Wish our gorgeous girl enjoy her volleylife~


  • I wouldn't say it is a nickname. It is Polish version of his name. After all - you wrote about that earlier :)


    i know. Kozuch who is called Maggi by her friends ;) that site(wikipedia) is written in the wrong

  • Vadim Pankov, coach of Zarechie, said the following in an interview:


    In this season, as far as I know, a lot of hope for German woman Margareta Kozuch. She lived up the expectations? Are you happy with her game?


    - No, she has demonstrated a very mediocre game. Traumatized in January, she, in fact, ceased to play. Month and a half has not played at all. Then, like a restored, but the game still remained unsatisfactory. Our Brazilian player Walewska Oliveira played great. That it is my hope and support. Well Kozuch did not play. She played worse Naumova and Markova. So play it is simply impossible. A foreigner who came to earn big money, so ... This is simply not serious.



    Even though his words are true, I don't like it that he tells it to press in this way. It is very damaging to Kozuch's reputation, it sounds like she is not professional enough and all such things. After all I think it was a bad season for both sides and both are happy that it's over. It was the same last year with Paula Pequeno in Zarechie too.
