This is sad but at least he left Spain in good terms. JULIO VELASCO & the Spanish Federation have mutually decided to part ways. The contract termination was due to the ECONOMIC CRISIS in Spain.

Spain played well at the 2010 World Champs and finished in the Top 12. We're just wondering that since the Spanish Federation could not afford to keep Velasco, does this mean they are looking for a new coach? a coach with not much experience? a cheaper coach? We wonder how the "new coach" will handle the men's volleyball
program. We're optimistic they'd find a good coach who is affordable. Good luck to Velasco and the Federation!
Hope Spain can medal this year at the European Champs. We hope they can repeat their performance from the 2007 European Championship. Spain has talented young players.
