Hyundai Capital Sends SOS to a Foreign Master... The Era of Foreign Coaches in Volleyball is in Full Swing

Coach Blanc, who led the Japanese national team at its peak, will lead Hyundai Capital next season.

Coaches Tilikainen, Ogino, and Blanc have a common root in ‘Japanese volleyball’

Coach Philippe Blanc (63), who will take the helm of Hyundai Capital men's volleyball team starting in the 2024-2025 season, boasts the most brilliant reputation among the coaches who visited the V-League. 

Hyundai Capital, which had been leading this season under Jin Sun-ki as an acting manager after parting ways with former coach Choi Tae-woong in December last year, announced on the 7th that it had signed a three-year contract with coach Blanc.

Coach Blanc, who played as a wing striker during his career and also served as a member of the French national team, has enjoyed success as a coach.

He served as the coach of the French men's national volleyball team, then moved to the head coach of the Polish men's volleyball team in 2013.

He helped Poland win the
World Championships in 2014 and received a medal.

Coach Blanc, who was appointed as the head coach of the Japan men's volleyball team in 2017, will take charge of the national team from 2022 and achieved the success of finishing third in Japan's Volleyball Nations League (VNL) last year and advancing to the finals of the Paris Olympics.

He is a leader who has left behind certain achievements on the world stage, with the Hyundai Capital club explaining the background of his appointment by saying, "By introducing volleyball tactics suited to the physical characteristics of Asian players and completely changing the Japanese men's volleyball team through a bold generational change."

Coach Blanc, who currently leads the Japanese volleyball team, will officially take office as
Hyundai Capital coach in August after the Paris Olympics.

If the V-League coach topography does not change next season, nearly half of the 7 coaches in the V-League men's division will have foreigners as coaches.

Additionally, Coach Blanc is the first French head coach in history and the fourth foreign coach in the men's division.

In a situation where they are being criticized as 'frogs in a well' after repeated poor performance on the international stage, clubs that form the foundation of the national team are actively accepting foreign leaders.

The first foreign coach in the V-League is Mamoru Bandaira (Japan), who led the women's volleyball team Heungkuk Life Insurance in the 2010-2011 season.

The team that continued the 10-year hiatus was Korean Air in men's volleyball.

Coach Roberto Santilli (Italy), who took office in the 2020-2021 season, left the team after a year of leading the team to the top, and Coach Tommy Tilikainen (Finland) took over the baton the very next season.

Coach Tilkainen also wrote a success story by winning the combined championship for two consecutive years until last season, and this season, he is attempting to become the first V-League to win a combined four consecutive wins.

Men's volleyball OK Financial Group, which signed coach Ogino Masaji (Japan) this season, is also a club that is greatly benefiting from a foreign coach.

Coach Ogino made an unconventional attempt at the beginning of the season to reduce dependence on foreign players and only allow spike serves to some players.

Afterwards, they showed flexibility in adapting to the V-League, winning all 6 games in the 4th round, and currently ranked 3rd in the men's division, giving OK Financial Group hope for spring volleyball for the first time in 3 years.

Coaches Tilikainen and Ogino came to Korea after leading the Japanese men's professional team.

The three foreign coaches, including Coach Blanc, have something in common: 'Japanese volleyball', which has far surpassed Korea.

There are currently two foreign coaches active in the women's division.

Marcello Abondanza (Italy) Heungkuk Life Insurance coach took charge of the team midway through last season and is competing with Hyundai Engineering & Construction for the lead this season.

Pepper Savings Bank coach Joe Trinsey (USA), a former great American college volleyball player, has raised great expectations, but is struggling, unable to overcome the limitations of his inferiority in power.

Coach Blanc, who will lead Hyundai Capital starting next season, writes another success story, the golden age of professional volleyball foreign coaches is expected to continue for the time being.
