BaliPure management apologized and asked fans to put the hitting incident involving import Danijela Dzakovic and Jewelle Bermillo behind.
BaliPure management apologized to fans and supporters regarding the hitting incident involving import Danjiela Dzakovic and libero Jewelle Bermillo in the Premier Volleyball League last Saturday.
Water Defenders team manager Paolo Turno released a statement on Monday asking fans for understanding and forgiveness with Dzakovic’s actions when she hit Bermillo after a case of miscommunication in the first set of BaliPure’s straight sets loss to Creamline in the PVL Season 3 Reinforced Conference.
The Montenegrin Dzakovic immediately hugged and apologized to Bermillo after the incident. Outraged fans took to social media in expressing their anger in Dzakovic's actions.
The PVL issued Dzakovic a reprimand, but promised stiffer sanctions to any player who will show an unsportsmanlike conduct in the future.
