Turin, Italy, September 24, 2010 - Following today's press conference, the FIVB Men's Volleyball World Championship has officially begun in Turin, Italy with all four coaches all agreeing that Pool E is one of the most interesting groups in the first round.
"This pool is one of the best in the first round," Bulgaria coach Silvano Prandi, who was born in Turin, said. "There are four great teams, and it will be very interesting for the fans. I'm sure that a lot of them will be very excited. I think that they will support any player, any team that will give them emotions and good Volleyball."
"We are lucky to be in the World Championship, in a pool with three European teams" Zhou Jianan, China coach said. "But we will do the best to pass to the second round, even if it will be hard."
The same feelings were expressed by Czech Republic coach Jan Svoboda. "We are proud to be part of this group. We know that it will be very hard. Other teams are strong and have a lot of international experience. But we will do the best to be one of the three teams that will go on."
"I don't want to repeat the words of my colleagues, but I'm sure of our work," France coach Philippe Blaine added. " We are concentrated, strong and we are looking forward for the matches. We prefer playing more than speaking."
