Plamen Konstantinov appointed as head coach of Bulgaria
News from the national federations

Sofia, Bulgaria, July 7, 2014.  Plamen Konstantinov is the new head coach of the men’s national team of Bulgaria.  At a meeting of the Bulgarian Volleyball Federation Board of Administration on Monday, the resignation of Italian Camillo Placi was officially accepted and Konstantinov was appointed to lead the Lions in their FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship Poland 2014 campaign.

This decision comes on the day after Bulgaria’s last game in the FIVB Volleyball World League 2014 and about a week after Placi announced his resignation.  For the two games against Russia, the southern European team was mentored by Placi’s assistant Nayden Naydenov, who was considered as one of the candidates for the head coach vacancy.  So was former national team head coach Martin Stoev.  However, it was Plamen Konstantinov who gained the unanimous approval of the BFV board.

Until only four years ago the legendary volleyballer himself was part of the national selection as team captain.  Following his retirement as a player, Konstantinov made a successful coaching debut leading Turkey’s Ziraat Bankasi ANKARA.  Later he transferred to the Russian Superliga, where he first coached the team of Gazprom-Yugra SURGUT and then, for the past two seasons, he has been mentoring the team of Guberniya NIZHNIY NOVGOROD, leading it to the silver medals from the 2014 CEV Volleyball Cup - Men in its rookie European Cups season.
