BEIJING, July 2 (Xinhua) — Legendary coach Wang Baoquan will continue to lead the Tianjin women’s volleyball team until the 2021 Chinese National Games, the club confirmed on Thursday.
“Mr Wang Baoquan will lead the team to take part in the 2020-21 Chinese women’s volleyball league as well as the 2021 National Games,” said Tianjin team manager Li Shan.
Wang retired as head coach of Tianjin following the last National Games in 2017, but returned halfway through last season to help the side claim their twelfth league title.
“When we had difficulties last season, he led the team back on the right path in a very short period of time. We believe he is the right person for the position right now,” Li added.
59-year-old Wang has led the Tianjin women’s volleyball team to ten league titles in 17 years. Enditem
