Excuse me, but if you don't give a chance to someone to show herself, how do you expect that she achieve something? People went crazy when they saw Ebrar because they are desperate. Turkey doesn't have the luxury to sit their young talent on the bench. especially for the opposite position. They don't have Boskovic or Egonu. She needs to be ready after Meryem.
Ebrar told by herself that she doesn't want to play OH on TV. She wants to play an opposite but she said that also the things are not work as she wants. She asked Giovanni for opposite spot for NT but she has been answered by him that he doesn't know so she needs to prepare in both position which is OH and OP. She said also she confused because of this situation. One day you wake up as an OP and the next day you are an OH. Playing in different position all the time makes young player tired. Even Hande said almost same thing.
In Vakifbank she never played as OP in this season while Haak was performing bad in first half of the season and When Haak rested Gozde Yilmaz played as OP instead of her.
Nobody improves by sitting on the bench. Ebrar has a big potantial but it means nothing if she doesn't play. If Boskovic, Egonu and even Haak have come to these days and announced their names, this is not only because they are talented but because they are constantly playing and improving themselves.
In Turkey the situation for young players are different than the other countries. The players who under 23, are not allowed to go different club without their main clubs permission, so they can't decade by themself. Ebrar wants to play, fortunately she will play in THY for the next season.
And about being lazy, Gozde was asked which foreign player was the best that she worked with, she said Glinka and Zhu. but Zhu was too lazy, she answered. But this laziness thing does not come from volleyball i guess. 2-3 years ago somewhere in Vakifbank interviews, I remember that players said that Zhu is the most sleeping person in the team. She was sleeping during her free time. So that's why Gozde might gave an answer like this. Same thing about Ebrar, in NT interview players also said that Ebrar is most sleeping person.
“Ebrar definitely, she only wants to spike and for all other things she is just lazy and doesn’t want to do it” that's why she must play as an OP. Just give her what she wants. Pushing her to play in the differrent position that she doesn't like, and judging her for not being succesfull is kinda unfair to me. My point of view, she handle of being OH this season for her age.
I hope she can be succesfull like the others. Wish her a luck.
well, he did give some chances to Ebrar and there were times she played well and there were times she didn’t. It must be not enough for Giovanni at the end of the day to give her a starting spot. According to your post, you kind of underestimate Haak but she announced her name and got attention by playing regularly for the last 3 seasons prior to coming Vakifbank, Ebrar never showed what Haak showed. And yes, I want Ebrar to play and become really good.
Regarding being lazy, when your teammates call you lazy for sleeping outside of practices, it just mean you like sleeping. But when they call you lazy because you don’t like working out, that is alarming. Those two are not the same thing unless you start sleeping during practice lol
Gozde said Zhu needs to work in herself a lot and she needs to learn a lot of thing. I am sure she needs to learn a lot of things about volleyball but what Gozde really meant was
outside of court volleyball related thing. She said Zhu needs to practice English and become more active with other people if she wants to become better.
