Vakıfbank beat Eczacıbaşı VitrA 3-0 in the final game of the play-off series in a game marked by good coordination, according to coach Giovanni Guidetti.
Gözde Sonsırma, who left the game in the final set due to injury, was a key player but the players from the bench did a great job of stepping up to replace her, he told Anatolia news agency in an interview after the game. “We were good as a team,” he said.
Vakıfbank won three cups this season, winning 47 matches in a row. “I have never experienced such a thing before,” Guidetti said. “We achieved a great success.”
