After the tournament of European Championship, Team Azerbaijan under the leader of Nataliya Mammadova received 4th place at the end of the national team season. Mammadova spent her three seasons in Volero Zurich, will return to the Russian Championship and remained her career in Dinamo Kazan.

Before the start of the Russian championship 17/18, players and coaches of Dinamo-Kazan received farewells in the Kazan Kremlin from the sports leadership of the republic, and also answered questions from journalists at the mandatory pre-season press conference.

– You spent three years in Switzerland, was it hard after that to return to Russia?

– Indeed, I have not played for three years in Russia, but I watched the championship and was aware of all the news, in the course, how the championship is going and what kind of fight is going on. And as soon as I received an offer to move here, I agreed without hesitation. Because “Dinamo-Kazan”, in my opinion, is the strongest club in Russia, with a good history, with a good reputation. Here, the club played with very strong and eminent players. Therefore, I repeat, I agreed at once, as soon as the offer was received. I also wanted to work with coach Rishat Gilyazutdinov, he live in Kazan, and for me, to play in such a strong club and achieve even greater results with such a strong team.

– What is your emotional mood after the European Championship?

– The mood is positive, good. We can say, we feel quite well to held the European Championship. Of course, we could win the medal, but it did not work. But we had a meeting with the President of Azerbaijan, and he was pleased with our result, the work done, the development of volleyball in the country. Therefore, emotions are the most positive.

– You have a lot of “gold” from Azerbaijan and Switzerland, there is a desire to replenish the collection in Russia?

– Of course! For this, I came here to take the “gold” of the Russian championship and once again prove that “Dinamo-Kazan” is the best club in Europe, and in Russia for sure! I will try to justify the hopes of the leadership, the fans, and all those people who put hopes on me.
