Al-Rayyan coach finds in experience the key over Esperance


Coach Arbutina was pleased with how his team improved along the game

Foued Kamoun, Esperance coach: "We were capable of showing the Tunisian and the African volleyball to the world. If we have had more time to prepare, we would be able to give better performances, but this is the third championship that we play in a row and we haven't hired any players for this competition. We knew that it wasn't going to be easy to face Al-Rayyan, but we gave our best and fought until the end." 

Igor Arbutina, Al-Rayyan coach: "Every match in this tournament will be hard, because all the teams are good. Esperance played really well, especially in the first set, when they put big pressure on us with their serves. We couldn't achieve the stability we needed with our block and defense. During the game, we slowly tried to find ourselves in those two aspects. And, as yesterday, I think that our experience changed the game in our favour."
