Posojilnica determined to upset French heavyweight AS CANNES
2016 CEV Volleyball Cup - Men

Bleiburg, Austria, November 29, 2015. On Wednesday night Austria’s vice champions Posojilnica AICH/DOB will continue their journey in the 2016 CEV Volleyball Cup – Men hosting France’s AS CANNES at JUFA Arena Bleiburg. Posojilnica got valuable experience from their previous participation – for two consecutive years – in the CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League and are eager to challenge the stars from the French Riviera.
Posojilnica’s coach Matjaz Hafner says: “As our team consists of many young and inexperienced players, it was already a huge success for us to beat the Finnish top team Hurrikaani LOIMAA in the previous round. We can play without any pressure and can take a lot of risks in all fundamentals. Since we are playing at home, we maybe can surprise our opponent with the help of our fans and this way get an early Christmas present.”
For Jani Kovacic, a silver medallist from the 2015 men’s EuroVolley with Slovenia’s national team, the upcoming game can be seen as a return to familiar realms since AICH/DOB was the springboard for his international career. “We are looking forward to meeting Jani. Even though he will be our opponent, we are pleased that one of our players has made it to a top European team,” says Manager Martin Micheu and adds: “We know the class and quality of AS CANNES. However, our team has the potential to cause a surprise if the players are able to keep the level of performance they have shown lately. The fighting spirit of AICH/DOB as well as the fans’ enthusiasm can lead to another memorable Volleyball evening.”
