Germany's Grozer takes a break from national team
Poland put an end to Germany’s dreams at the Qualifying Tournament in Berlin when they defeated their hosts 3-2 (20-25, 25-22, 16-25, 28-26, 16-14). As ever, Grozer was one of the best players on the German team.
The 31-year-old has decided he will stop playing for the German national team for a while.
“I was going to announce the suspension of my international career after the Olympics,” Grozer said. “Unfortunately, I’m not going to have that chance now. I certainly won’t play in the national colours for at least a year or two. What happens after that, I don’t know.”
Grozer who earns his money with Samsung Blue Fangs in South Korea, was born in Hungary but became a naturalized German citizen.
In 2014, he won the Cup Winners Cup, the Champions League and the Club Championship. At the World Championships in Poland, he helped Germany to the bronze medal. He is a five-time German Volleyball Player of the Year.
