Happy Nawrocki hails beaten Bolivar

Poland's PGE Skra Belchatow qualified for the final of the FIVB Club World Championships for the second year running

PGE Skra Belchatow coach Jacek Nawrocki:
"I was really afraid of this game for two reasons. First of all, yesterday the Argentinians played a fantastic game against Dynamo (Moscow) and secondly I really have a lot of respect for their coach Weber and his way of coaching. Drean Bolivar play really the way we would always like to watch Volleyball, as they have a great defence, quick play and many different combinations in attack. The third set was the key to this game as we definitely demolished their resistance in defence."

PGE Skra Belchatow captain Mariusz Wlazly:
"I am really happy with this win and with the qualification for the final game. At least we are exactly where we were last year and we'll get silver in the worst-case scenario. We knew that we had to play at 100 per cent to defeat the Argentinians, especially after their stellar performance against Dinamo. I wish them good luck for the classification match and hope they will be smiling tomorrow as well."

Drean Bolivar coach Javier Weber:
"The schedule here is very tight and yesterday we had our main game, so it was not easy to recover not just physically but especially mentally. I have to remotivate my players because tomorrow we play for the bronze medal and this is a very important goal for us. There is a lot at stake there and we’ll have to play at our maximum."

Drean Bolivar player Ivan Castellani:
"We were anxious and we did not play well. Anyhow I am happy that we made it to the top four and this is an outstanding result for our club and also for Argentine Volleyball which is sometimes pretty underestimated in the international arena. Through this tournament we are gaining some more respect and tomorrow we’ll go for bronze."
