At the 2023 KOVO (Korean Volleyball Federation) men’s foreign player draft held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Umraniye Grand Ballroom in Turkey on the 8th at 4:00 pm (10:00 pm Korean time), Yosbani was nominated by Samsung Fire & Marine as the second overall pick. .
In this foreign player draft, which was held as a face-to-face event for the first time in four years, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance was ranked second in the bead lottery after OK Financial Group as four clubs used priority selection rights, but they were lucky to pick the first player who played in the field. enjoyed
Samsung Fire & Marine Manager Kim Sang-woo went up to the podium and called Yosbani Hernandez. Yosbani was nominated for OK Savings Bank in the 4th overall in the 2018 tryout held in Monza, Italy, and was nominated for Hyundai Capital in the last 7th place in the 2019 tryout held in Toronto, Canada. Afterwards, Yosubani wore a Korean Air uniform as a substitute foreign player for the 2020–2021 season and led the team to victory in the championship match. With this nomination from Samsung Fire & Marine, Yosubani will be active in the fourth team of the V-League.
Head coach Kim Sang-woo, who had already hoped to be nominated for Yosubani from the first day of the tryout, went into the interview with a smile after the draft.
Head coach Kim Sang-woo said, “When I saw the players who came here to tryout in Istanbul, it seems that the player base was not thick. From our team’s point of view, following the Asian quota, in the foreign player draft, we nominate players who have thought ahead, and the team color can change a little more aggressively. I feel fortunate,” he said.
Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance selected Eddy as the first overall pick in the Asia Quarter Draft held in Jeju in April. In this foreign player draft, even Yosubani was reinforced.
Director Kim Sang-woo said, “I think Yos Bunny is more likely to receive than Eddy. Eddie tried to receive when he was in college.” At the same time, he emphasized, “Attack and serve are likely to become stronger. Receiving has become more important now.”
Manager Kim said, “The team needed a change as a whole. There is still a long way to go in terms of pursuit. This is the start. I will actively reinforce my stamina and skills.”
Regarding the proportion of the two foreign players, coach Kim Sang-woo emphasized, “The results have not yet been released. We will make up for the parts that were so lacking. Yosubani’s attack ratio will be higher, but we will actively use Yosubani and Eddy.”
Manager Kim Sang-woo said, “Last season, setter Noh Jae-wook did not catch on after being discharged from the military. If you do well, you can save the team as a whole.”
Lastly, coach Kim Sang-woo said, “Many people saw me and my team struggling last season and gave comforting and sincere support. As we prepare for the new season amidst such support, I felt that ‘this opportunity is coming this time’. I’m getting it,” he said calmly.
I was very curious about whether Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which was in a difficult and difficult situation, would emerge as the eye of a typhoon in the league as it stretched for the new season.
