The Turkish and Polish teams as the strongest contenders should reap benefits from this sudden head coach departure, with the Dutch team is ridden with some problems at present. Their replacement coach may not have enough time to work on the team for the Olympic qualifying tournament in January 2020 hosted there, the last chance to get the sole ticket to the 2020 OG.
Jamie Morrison is no longer the coach of Dutch volleyball players. The Dutch Volleyball Federation announced this on Saturday (05 Oct). Support for Morrison in the player group disappeared last year.
Morrison reacts disappointedly to the Nevobo Volleyball Federation:
"For the last three years, I have been fully dedicated to the Dutch volleyball team, we have not achieved our goals in 2019 and I am responsible for that, I would have liked to finish the assignment that I started in 2017 towards Tokyo, but that is no longer possible."
