Saadat says respects Alekno’s decision on leaving him out

TEHRAN, Jul. 05 (MNA) – Young talent of Iranian volleyball Bardia Saadat says he respects decision of Vladimir Alekno for not including him in the national team for the upcoming Olympics.

“I respect the viewpoint of the national team’s head coach. I thank Alekno for providing me with the opportunity to play in the senior team,” added the 18-year-old opposite.

“I will continue training better than before so that I can help my national team if required,” he stressed, also noting that he will join a camp of Iran’s U21 volleyball team.

Saadat made his debut match against Russia at 2021 Volleyball Nations League.
