Mahsa Saberi, a member of Iran Women’s National Volleyball Team, said recently: “The women’s volleyball league is in bad shape this season.”
“We had to choose between bad and worse,” she added.
Saberi, who also plays for Mazandaran’s Behmonir volleyball team, explained: “The league has no money. I’ve had fewer offers this year than ever before. I eventually signed with a lesser-known team. Luckily, it ended up being a good decision.”
