    Why are you claiming things you don't have any proof? It is all your conspiracy theories or do you have any document you want to share with us?

    I believe in Italy volleyball media. Because they are very close to agencies, they are usually spot on when it comes to salaries. So I believe 1 million euro per year part is true. I don't care who shares it . The part that concerns me is Vakifbank is paying 1 million euro per year for this transfer. This is huge even for Turkish volleyball league standarts.

    The contracts's amounts are not public in Poland but when Glinka came to Chemik club also transfered like 8 players from her husband's agency + later coach Cuccarini, assistant coaches and managing director.

    And you think this is normal? The story you shared is also so wrong .Because it happened doesn't mean acting this way is all right. For me unethical.

    Wow! Now you are implying that Haak was bribing Guidetti or sharing the money:what::aww:this kind of fraud accusations are too much of conspiracy theories for me.

    I know you don't like the fact that Ebrar is not playing as starter (I have been screaming for months that making her outside is not gonna work). It is unnecessary to push Haak around. She was the best player on the market except Boskovic, Egonu and Vargas. So I don't think it was a bad move to invest her. Although ebrar is talented she showed that she is not stabile enough to carry a team in CL. This is vakifbank, not Yeşilyurt

    Hmmm no no .I don't believe Guidetti is taking anything from this transfer but Guidetti has a different relationship with Gold Sport Modena agency. I think there were photos of him going to holiday with player agents of this agency. So it doesn't surprise me if he influenced Vakifbank to overpay a Gold Sport Modena player.

    Ok Vakifbank is not Yeşilyurt. Ebrar can't carry the team but Haak can(!). But how can you explain the fact that Guidetti didn't use Ebrar as OPP so far? Not even as a reserve?

    Nobody is claiming Ebrar is better player than Haak. But not giving her any single chance to compete for the position doesn't seem right to me. There is something wrong with this approach.

    And btw someone said 'Male legendary players don't even make that much' apparently triggered bcs of this in 2019.

    Are u kidding me, men make more literally in every sport/workplace/everything everywhere in this world. Volleyball is maybe the one and only place (def in sports one of the only) where women get appreciated more than men and ppl still dare to mention it here with a non-pleased attitude.

    I hope when Zhu Ting comes she makes 2-3 million USD or more so these people get triggered even more. :rose:


    I think you should be a politician. That manupilation is something else :lol: . Nobody is questioning the amount female superstars like Zhu Ting, Boskovic,Egonu are taking. They can have better salaries than male colleagues.

    Volleyball is not like basketball. There isn't much difference between men and women volleyball in terms of attraction, impact. If you claim Haak has bigger impact and deserves more than than Zaytsev, Juantorena,Bruno,Ngapeth etc then you're right. But Haak is an unproven ,very young player. She can easily accept much lesser salary and play for Vakifbank. Instead, Vakifbank chose to overpay her despite already having a very young, promising ,award winner(!) OPP. Guidetti even doesn't let Ebrar play as OPP. He forbids competition with Haak. So here is the situation; she is taking superstar money, her natural rival is eliminated by coach. Isn't it logical to expect superstar performances from her? This includes not choking against big teams, for once (!) killing out of system ball , hitting crucial spikes etc

    If she is taking 10 times better money than let's say Ebrar ,Zehra then she should give much better performances against big teams.

    Ps: I don't believe Haak is alone taking all the money.

    Lol poor Haak. :)

    Nobody is claiming Haak chose Vakifbank for money. She would came even if club offered double of her Scandicci salary.

    There was no competition for Haak. No other Turkish team made offer.

    But for some reason Vakifbank decided to severely overpay her. And it is our right to question why.

    They didn't pay 1 million euros to Egonu, Boskovic , they paid it to an unproven player. Vakifbank also did it despite having the most promising Turkish young opposite player in their squad.

    So far the only players that earned over 1 million euros from Turkish clubs were champions, already proven MVPs

    So if she is earning on bar with Zhu Ting ,Boskovic, Leon, Ngapeth ; double of Vargas, Kelsey Robinson, Zaytsev, Juantorena; 10 times better than young Turkish players like Ebrar, Zehra, I'm expecting special peformances from her. Not choking in crucial moments, for once hitting out of system balls etc .

    She is young ,she is there to learn, give her patience part is too romantic for someone taking 1 million euros per year.

    Vakifbank has the best opposite player of VNL at the age of 19 in their side and decided to pay 10 times more money to someone at the same age. At this conditions you are expecting patience for Haak and criticizing Ebrar for not being motivated enough. This is laughable. I hate when people always choose local players as scapegoats and giving princess treatment to overpaid foreign players

    What are you talking about?

    You have the link. Read those words.

    Haak says "Det är överdrivet" Google translate tells me it means "It's exaggerated."

    What denial do you need? Her payment slip?

    If it was wrong , pro-Guidetti press in Turkey would already shared the salary. I don't think Haak is taking 1 million euros alone but I believe Vakifbank is paying both her and her agent a total of 1 million euros. Considering Guidetti's very close relationship with her agency, this transfer raises many question marks.

    When did any turkish club confirm the salary of a player? What did Vakifbank say about the salary? When did they deny the rumors? Am I missing something? Neither the player nor the player denied the salary rumors.

    Both Italian ,Swedish and international press (worldofvolley) are reporting 1 million euros per year.…ast-betalda-idrottskvinna


    According to information in the Italian media, Isabelle Haak has an annual salary of about SEK 10.6 million in Turkey - which is supposed to make her Sweden's best-paid female athlete.


    Figures that, if confirmed, would set a new record for world volleyball: Isabelle Haak could become the first player in history to earn more than one million dollars a year, almost one million euros at current exchange rates, under 21 years of age (the opposite was born in Lund, Sweden, in 1999). Very probably it will be reached by the already mentioned Egonu already in the next market, when with a new contract it could also reach certain hyperbolic figures. But the first under 21 in the world capable of snatching such an important contract will remain Isabelle.

    I don’t believe that amount to be honest and it makes people to judge her more. You all should cool down about the money a bit. Maybe it is for 3 years or something which could make sense.

    No it is real. This also makes her the highest earning Swedish female athlete. 3 years/3 million euros.( maybe Meatballs may share the article again)

    The amount of money is so abnormal for someone in her status .It should be discuss more.

    She's about the same age as Haak. If she doesn't beat her for a spot in the starting line-up, how on earth is she supposed to be a world class player anytime soon? It's not like she has Egonu or Boskovic in front of her...

    This is so wrong. The biggest criticism for Guidetti is he doesn't let Ebrar play as OPP. He doesn't want competition in OPP position. Vakifbank management made it clear from day 1 that Haak will be starting OPP and Gözde will be her substitute. Guidetti only lets Ebrar play as OH . But Ebrar HATES being an OH Altinli (I asked her through social media and she confirmed me that she doesn't want to play as OH).

    Her only choice is leaving Vakifbank but this is impossible because in Turkey there is a rule that you can't leave your club without their permission until age 22.

    Guidetti certainly killed her joy in the field, I'm afraid Guidetti is also on the verge of destroying her career.

    BTW; Alexia reminds me our 'Neslihan Demir'. She is going to be a superstar.

    I don't like it neither but who is the 3rd and 4th OH in Vakıfbank, assuming all Haak, gözde and ebrar as opp:teach:

    Ebrar Karakurt still needs to learn for attack, defense and block in OPP position. Changing position of a very young player frequently can destroy her career. For me this is the case now.

    I wish they let her to go Yeşilyurt . She could play instead of Elif Boran.
