“The fans of ZAKSA are very, very effective and they played a part in this win."
"When we won two sets, I said to my players that they can become very dangerous, as they have nothing to lose. ZAKSA can serve with higher risk, thus scoring more points," he added.
“In the Premier League of Iran we do not have teams like ZAKSA, serving with higher risk, jumping when serving. But we did our best and we congratulate, again, ZAKSA. We hope we will win the next two games. We know it’s volleyball, and in volleyball everything can happen,” Karkhaneh concluded.
