The 2017/18 Argentinian Men’s Volleyball Championship is going to be highly attractive to watch as its clubs hired several Cuban players who always give a specific charm to the play itself wherever they compete.


 

After UNTreF Vóley signed with three Cuban National Team members, their rivals Gigantes del Sur did the same, but with two players.

As volleyball.it reported, a 19-year-old setter Adrián Goide and a 20-year-old receiver Miguel Ángel López, both competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics, came to Gigantes.

The younger of these two arrived from Sancti Spíritus while the other one was a member of Cienfuegos last season, both Cuban clubs.

Thats why i announced that after Tokyo 2020, the cubans would be back again aiming to the 2024 Paris Olympic, Cuban federetion learned in the hard way how to threat their athletes, and now they send them to overseas to develop during the pro season instead of leaving them with 0 games in Cuba, their main star would be with 0 doubt Miguel Gutierrez, who still have to make it official for Ravenna in Italy serie A, we need to develop our MB, but i think pretty sure that we will return in time for Paris 2024, i have no hope for Tokyo is to hard, the old member of the team will have 23 years, is not enought time, but after that, we will give the world some cuban taste as always.
